St. Anthony's is a co-educational Catholic Primary School catering for students from Prep to Year 6. The school serves the south-western corner of Toowoomba City and is easily accessible from the suburbs of Harristown, Glenvale, Westridge, Drayton, Darling Heights, Hodgsonvale and Westbrook. Many students now commute in by bus and car from the neighbouring areas.
St Anthony’s is an integral part of St Anthony’s Parish, Toowoomba and operates under the auspices of the Toowoomba Catholic Education Office. The school is accredited by the Queensland Office of Non-State Schooling and is funded by the State and Commonwealth Governments. Parents/caregivers pay school fees to cover the day-to-day running costs of the school. The school’s Parents and Friends Association raises funds to provide quality facilities and resources for the benefit of students.
School Philosophy St. Anthony's School aims to provide many opportunities for each child to reach his or her full potential and to lay solid foundations on which they can base their future adult life.
We therefore concentrate on the child's holistic development - spiritual, academic, physical, emotional, cultural and social. We concentrate on the self-worth and value of each person as a unique individual. With this in mind, we encourage each individual to participate in all aspects of school life.
Our underlying belief is that the learning experiences will be child-centred and relevant. Our hope is to create a rich environment in which each child will develop a love of learning and self-development. We develop within each child a sense of belonging and pride in oneself, work and school.
Our aim is to prepare each child to be a happy, responsible, loyal and hard-working Christian citizen who will contribute positively to the common good of society.
