"Never see a need without doing something about it"
Come and see how we stand out from the rest.


"We have attended St Anthony’s for six years with our

three children. We have loved the small class sizes

providing our children with some much support, care

and focus. St Anthony’s offers a fabulous community

of parents and teachers that really care and know how

to get the best out of your children."


"St Anthony’s is the perfect learning environment for our child. It has a lovely community feel with wonderful, experienced teaching staff. As soon as we toured the school we knew it was the perfect fit, as it is a nurturing environment where it feels as though everyone knows each other and the kids are happy."

St Anthony’s Primary School Alphington, was established in 1917 by the Josephite Sisters and has a proud history of supporting the community. 


The school opened its doors at 43 Austin Street with Sister Isobel Colvin as its Principal with the latest building development named in her honour. From a humble two classroom building, we now boast 12 classrooms, multi-learning areas and a newly renovated playground in 2021.


The school moved to its present site in 1934. The Josephites lead the school up to 1974 and we are presently lead by members of the Salvoratorian Order.


In 2017 the school celebrated 100 years of Catholic Education.
