About St Anthony’s - School Board

Our School Board provides a structure and process for genuine partnership in planning and decision making within a Catholic school community.

Aims of the School Board

Identify, enunciate, nurture and celebrate the Special Religious Character of the school.

Support processes developed by the school staff aimed at improving student learning outcomes in accordance with the education vision and mission.

Promote Catholic education that:

  • Lives out the local Church’s educational mission
  • Strives for educational excellence
  • Contributes to society

Decision Making

The philosophy and practice of Collaborative Ministry and SHARED WISDOM are the essence of decision making and ministry of Boards.

“To each the Lord gives a piece of the wisdom. To no one does He give all the wisdom of God. We all get different pieces. And as a consequence, we must share our wisdom. We must hear, respect and treasure one another’s wisdom. We must work for a climate that is open and respectful.”

Policy Development

Schools adopt the policies approved by the Diocesan Education Council. The School Board may develop guidelines to support the implementation of these policies. School Boards may also identify specific areas of school life they believe require the development of policies.


Board Meetings are held once each month. An Annual General Meeting is held once a year. Parents wishing to serve on the School Board must attend an in-service which deals with aims and responsibilities and shared decision making.
