Welcome to our Franciscan Village on the Kedron Hill. In 1929 the Franciscan Missionary Sisters of
the Immaculate Conception travelled to Kedron Brisbane with a vision and
mission. It was to build a Franciscan
school community based on Gospel Values and relationships based on the
teachings of Jesus. As principal I can
confidently say that this vision and mission of our Franciscan Sisters and
Friars is still being lived today by our students, families and staff.
We are very proud of our Franciscan Ethos and Charism.
Franciscan spirituality is about the goodness.
The goodness in God and in the goodness in each other as we witness and
form relationships. St Anthony’s is a systemic
Catholic Primary School in the Archdiocese of Brisbane. We are located between two Franciscan Order
owned secondary colleges, Mt Alvernia for girls and Padua for boys. Together
the three schools exist as an educational entity that is known in the local
area as FOTH (Franciscans on the Hill).
As a Parish School we enjoy a very positive partnership with
Little Flower Church that comes under the stewardship of the Franciscan Friars.
We are delighted to have Fr. Mario Debbistta and the Franciscan Missionary
Sisters of the Immaculate Conception as a welcome presence in our school. Our school is embedded within the Franciscan
tradition and our community continues to be inspired by the spirit of St
Francis and St Clare of Assisi.
St Anthony’s is proud of their team of professional,
dedicated teachers and staff who are providing students with exciting learning
experiences in a caring and safe community. We acknowledge our parents who are
the “first educators of their children” and actively encourage their involvement
in their child’s journey from Prep to Year Six.
We have a commitment to developing strong parent and community
partnerships and our Pastoral Care Parent Program is testament to this.
Our school motto is 'My God My All'. We have a commitment to
Five Franciscan Values that provide direction to our School Vision and
Mission. We believe that by following
these Five Franciscan Values, along with our Franciscan traditions and way of
life we will encourage a flourishing and joyful community.
We invite you to read more about our school on our website
or to come along and visit our Franciscan Village here in Kedron.
With best wishes
“Preach the Gospel at all times,
and when necessary... use words”
St Francis of Assisi
