History:

In the early 1970s it became evident that the parish primary school of Our Lady of Mount Carmel could not cater for the increasing enrolments in the Parish. The decision to build a new school, St Anne’s, was taken. St Anne’s primary school was established in October 1977, with an enrolment of 60 children to serve the needs of Catholic families living in the newly developing areas to the west of the Sunbury railway line. There has been a steady growth in pupil enrolments, staffing and buildings required to serve the changing needs of the school. St Anne’s school and Our Lady of Mount Carmel school are sister schools in the Parish of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and work together in the areas of sacramental preparation for children and adult education.


Description:

St Anne’s is located in a semi-rural setting, that has wide open spaces, views of a distant mountain range and yet is only a half hour drive from Melbourne. The school caters for primary age children from Sunbury, Diggers Rest and the surrounding farming areas. The school consists of three blocks of buildings which have in addition to classroom areas, and administration areas, specialist areas that include music, physical education, music and library. The school has computers in each classroom and there is a computer laboratory. The playground area at the school includes a football oval, basketball court, downball courts, and large expanses of grass areas.
