Health and Physical Education

St Anthony's promotes a healthy lifestyle by engaging the students in specialist PE classes from Reception.  These classes lay the foundations for success when being physically active.  Students participate in games and activities that develop fundamental movement skills to ensure that they can participate in a variety of sports.
There are many opportunities for students to be active including:

  • lunchtime activities
  • Extra Curricular Sport
  • Annual Sports Day
  • Annual Walkathon


The music program at St Anthony’s school consists of weekly classroom lessons, an instrumental tuition program and a co-curricular program.  The classroom music program at St Anthony’s aims to give students a wide variety of opportunities to appreciate and participate in music. A nurturing and encouraging approach fosters student self confidence in sharing ideas and practical skills within the classroom and in performing to an audience. Group collaboration as well as an ensemble setting give students a variety of learning environments and learning opportunities. The use of ICT means that the program is progressive and using popular iPad apps such as garage band, the students create and experiment with musical ideas.

 Music Teacher: Matt Young

Students in years three and four are given the opportunity to be involved in the ‘All Stars Choir’ who perform at assemblies, school events, liturgies, masses, as well as going on a kindergarten tour.

All year five students participate in the Catholic Schools Music Festival at the Festival Theatre each year.

All students will have the opportunity to perform in the St Anthony’s School concert, displaying skills in drama, music and dance.

Each year, the school community comes together for ‘Carols on the Green’ where all students will perform. This is an enjoyable night of celebration and religious festivities.


Japanese is our chosen language with your child gaining an appreciation and experience of the language and cultural acquisition.

In the Early Years ( Reception – Year Two) your child will learn about festivals, animals, nouns, counting, greetings, and an introduction into Japanese culture.

In the Primary Years ( Year Three – Six) your child will continue to learn more about Japanese culture with a greater emphasis on the grammatical sentence structure around student interest areas.
