Our Story

The first Catholic school in Toongabbie, known as St Enda’s, was opened in January 1950 by the Sisters of Mercy. Many students were from the predominantly Maltese farming community. Children from Kindergarten to Year 4 were taught in the present parish hall, which served as both church and school. The initial enrolment was 179 students.

In 1956, a new school was built on the present site in Targo Road, Girraween, and classes extended to Year 6 for girls. The school was renamed St Anthony’s after St Anthony of Padua, patron of the parish of Toongabbie. Additional buildings were opened in 1968, 1975, 1979 and 1998. A new resource centre, and classroom extensions and refurbishments were completed in 2010.

In 1982, the first lay Principal was appointed. Through co-operation and commitment, staff and community met the challenge of maintaining the identity of the school and continued to cater for the different needs of the community. In 1984, a decision was made to cater for boys all the way through to the end of Year 6.

St Anthony’s Primary continues the tradition of the Mercy Sisters by focusing on the education of the whole child. The achievements and values of the past are recognised and appreciated as being important and relevant.

Celebrations are part of our tradition and continue to be a vital part of St Anthony’s. Close working relationships exist between the parish and the school with the pastor, parents, staff and students being valued.

As we look forward, we acknowledge our history and share a common goal for the education and faith development of our children.
