Antonio Catholic School (then known as simply Antonio School) was established in Morphett Vale in 1975 with the support of Federal Government funding and through the generosity of the Antonio family, after whom the school was named.
The parish, led by Fr Rob Egar, worked tirelessly to establish a quality school for children from Morphett Vale and the surrounding areas..
Since its inception with ‘open plan’ classrooms, we have had a reputation for innovation and we regularly welcome visitors to view best contemporary practice (as happens now with the implementation of the Walker Learning Approach).
A complete refurbishment of the two main buildings took place in 2000 and early in 2010, Antonio was the first Catholic school in SA to open its ‘Building the Education Revolution’ project, a multi-purpose hall and gymnasium.
The school has recently successfully applied for a federal Grant to upgrade existing Junior Primary classrooms which was completed during 2015.
Fundraising for Catholic Charities
The Morphett Vale Antonio Catholic School Mini Vinnie's Team along with Lillian Van Brussel, APRIM, engaged the whole school in a project to support Catholic Charities month. Each class was invited to represent one of the agencies for which Catholic Charities raises money. Their challenge was to present at a whole school assembly and talk about their chosen charity. They did this at their assembly and showed everyone how much they had learned so far and how they would support their Charity. Well done all! See photos below.
