About Our School
St. Anthony Catholic School (built in 1977) is located in the White Oaks area of London. There is a diverse student population with many families of Latin American (mainly Colombian) origin. Many of our families speak a language other than English (mainly Spanish) at home.We currently have thirteen French Immersion classes from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6. Students may enter early immersion in either JK or SK. The school provides a Christ-centred learning environment enabling all students to realize their full potential. The Ontario Curriculum, mandated by the Ministry of Education, is the core from which all planning begins.
Our school has thirteen classrooms in use from Junior Kindergarten through Grade 6. We also utilize classroom space for a Computer lab, an English room, and Music room. There are currently three classrooms being used by our Board Curriculum services. We also have a gymnasium, a library and a multi-purpose room which houses one of our Kindergarten classes as well as the Before and after school program.
Living Our Faith
The staff and students of St. Anthony Catholic French Immersion school have many opportunities to pray and demonstrate their Catholic faith. These include school-wide and classroom liturgies, the celebration of the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Reconciliation. Our school community works closely with St. Justin’s Parish Church.Students, staff and our Catholic School Council support various charitable endeavours throughout the year such as Terry Fox, Jump Rope for Heart, the United Way, the London Food Bank, Christmas gifts for the less fortunate in our community. St. Anthony has established partnerships with Families First, St. Peter’s Seminary and the Rosary Apostolate in schools.
The majority of students who attend St. Anthony do not live within walking distance of the school. We have four school buses serving our students. Parents are encouraged to send their children to school on the school bus.
