- A Franciscan school in the Townsville Catholic Diocese where our motto is ‘Let your light Shine’
- P-12 College with a population of over 700 students on the primary campus
- Demographic includes indigenous and defence families.
And so the journey begins…
- KidsMatter Afternoon Teas for parents and community members. Informative parent sessions are also given throughout the year with topics suggested of interest to our parents.
- KidsMatter Crew – Leadership from the ground up!
Another initiative was creating a KidsMatter Crew with our Year 6 students. Each term the Crew come together to discuss and role play ways to show our YCDI Keys of Success within the school grounds. They come to regular meetings and brainstorm new ways ‘catch’ students who are role modelling to others our SHINE motto. During lunch times they are easily identified in their bright yellow jerseys and KidsMatter badges.
- SHINE Awards are given each week on assembly.
The children have embraced the opportunity to be acknowledged for their efforts to SHINE - the school’s motto for modelling positive behaviours. Some students also receive special SHINE postcards in the mail from staff when being recognised for exemplary behaviours. These are enjoyed by both students and their families when the wonderful messages arrive home.
St. Anthony's Catholic College's SHINE motto embodies the model positive behaviour in the school.
The school also holds regular activities for parents and families like teas and information sessions to build engagement and promote inclusiveness.
