We welcome you to the St Anthony of Padua community. We invite you to come and see us in action, to gain an insight into the unique relationships that we share with our students, our parents as partners in each child’s journey, and with our Parish which adds so greatly to our learning and spiritual journey. We are a school large enough to offer outstanding facilities and programs and still cater for the individual needs of every child.
We are truly enriched by the multicultural nature of our Parish and School environment. All families are welcomed into a rich cultural community that celebrates its identity ensuring a sense of welcome, acceptance and pride. We celebrate the unity between Parish and School and encourage you as your child’s first educator to become active participants in both.
The members of St Anthony’s Catholic school community undertake and engage in the love and joy of the Gospel through our school motto “Live and Learn in Christ”.
Our faith journey is one of nurturing each person’s development and relationship with God, bearing witness to the words of scripture, ensuring that the teachings of Jesus permeate learning experiences, inviting the rich and diverse cultures and supporting our students to work towards justice and peace.We promote participation, inclusion and equity by establishing policies and practices that respect the dignity of each individual.
We are proud of the academic standards achieved by our students. The school offers a broad and contemporary curriculum providing a range of opportunities and experiences that foster the growth of the whole student. Our children leave us ready to embark on their secondary school journeys with established academic skills, self-confidence and pride in themselves. Our staff is a highly professional team of educators who continually strive for best practice, innovation and creativity. They are united in their passion to provide each and every child with the optimum opportunity to be the best that they can be.
We look forward to meeting with you to share the outstanding community of St Anthony’s Primary School, Melton South.
