St Anthony’s School community works collaboratively to teach and live the values of Christ. While respecting tradition, and to meet the demands of a rapidly changing society, it strives to educate our children to reach their full potential.
“Lucerna Pedibus Meis”
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
(Introduced by past Principal Tom Sefton.)
The school crest reflects the vision statement of the school, the life of the patron saint and the heritage of the local area. The open book represents the Bible.The Bible is like a torch in the dark. The Greek letters Alpha and Omega represent the belief that God is with us from the beginning to the end of our life. It highlights that God’s word guides us throughout our lives.
The Latin words at the bottom translate as “a light beneath our feet” and carry the message that God’s word is the guiding light of our life. The open book and lily are the traditional representations of St Anthony of Padua who was known as a great teacher and a good man.
The Kangaroo Paw was the symbol for the City of Wanneroo and serves to indicate that the school is central to the heritage of the area.
Father, we pray for the school community of St Anthony’s Wanneroo.
Bless and unite us and draw us closer to your son Jesus.
St Anthony, pray for us.
