School Policies & Procedures

Below are the Policies & Procedures that will ensure the good running of St Anthony’s School:

Anti-Bullying Policy

Collection of Fees

Catholic education is to be made available to all Catholic students whose parents seek a Catholic education for them, insofar as this is possible, while embodying the Church’s special preference for the poor and disadvantaged. Schools have a responsibility to communicate the financial constraints under which they operate, to parents enrolling their children in Catholic schools. Parents are asked to make a commitment to support Catholic education financially by paying fees.

The Bishops of Western Australia have approved the collection of school fees from parents as a necessary contribution to the costs of delivering a Catholic education.

The Religious Education program conducted in our school aspires to the development of the individual from within, assisting each individual to become a fully integrated person in the image of God.

Dispute and Complaints Resolution Policy

The School Education Act (WA) 1999 requires an educational system to have a means by which disputes and complaints about the provision of education are resolved.

The Catholic school, as part of the Body of Christ (1 Cor 12) is required to work harmoniously to build community. The distinctive nature of the Catholic school is guaranteed by all members of the community respecting the rights and responsibilities of each other (CS 73).
