Curriculum Information

Our teaching/learning program is based on Queensland Studies Authority syllabi. We adapt and modify to meet local needs and individual’s needs through the compilation of School Based Programs, which have been validated by Brisbane Catholic Education.

The connected curriculum is a feature within the Key Learning Areas focussing the development on the roles for Life Long Learning - Effective Communicator, Leader and Collaborator, Community Contributor, Quality Producer, Designer and Creator and Active Investigator.

Supporting the Educational needs
St Anthony's accepts students with a wide range of abilities. Encouragement is given to promote individual excellence and self-esteem by enabling students to achieve a level of mastery commensurate with their own abilities and with their particular stage of development. The Catholic Special Education Services provide specialised services and personnel to meet the needs of the students and to support their teachers. These include: -

  • Support Teacher – Inclusive Education who offers support either in the classroom or through periods of withdrawal for individual tuition.
  • Advisory Visiting Teachers support teachers with students who have special needs eg. Hearing and physical impairment.
  • A formal process exists for the referral of children. Parent notification is given prior to children attending any learning support.
