About Our School

Our mission is to offer a holistic education for all our children focusing on the spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical growth of the child.  St. Anthony is a community school that works closely with all community agencies in the Somerset West area in order to be a positive partner in the growth and development of the families in our area.  We strongly believe in the potential of each student and strive to offer opportunities for each and every student to succeed.

Community Partnerships

We continue to develop and improve our partnerships in the community. We will continue to work with the Somerset West Community Health Center .

We continue to have a very active Green Team and we are now a Gold-level EcoSchool for the very first time in our history!

Activities, Clubs & Teams

We work closely with Ottawa Community Immigrant Services (OCISO) to better serve the parent community. OCISO supports immigrants through the journey of making Canada their home by providing creative and responsive programs that are culturally and linguistically appropriate, by building community through mutual respect and partnerships, and by fostering healthy and inclusive spaces for open dialogue and healing.

The Green Team meets with Evergreen - what do you want your yard to look like?

St. Anthony School will be partnering with Evergreen this year.  As you can see by the statement from their website, they focus on creating a greener, more sustainable city.  They place a high value on collaboration and innovation, this is why Andrew’s first visit to our school involved meeting our Green Team to get their ideas on what they want to see happen in their yard.

Here are some of the things they want to do:
  • I want to play soccer
  • I want to slide
  • I want to roll on the grass
  • I want to sit in the shade
  • I want to talk to a friend on the grass
  • I want to climb
  • I want to swing
  • I want to climb on a rope
