Coronavirus – national school closure

The Scottish Government has announced schools across Scotland will close after Friday.

We are working with them to ensure continued support for children and families affected. We will provide more info as soon as we can.

Please follow the council on Twitter @RenCouncil or visit for the latest updates. Visit for health advice


We have a new phone number – 0300 300 0178

Remember we now have a school app. You can download this from the app/play store on your phone.  Just look for MySchoolApp – It has a logo of a stick person with a colourful background.  Once downloaded just search for St Anthony’s and sign up.

Please remember you can request a paper copy of our newsletter by contacting the school office.

We are now on Twitter – request to follow us @ StAnthonysSAPS

Our twitter is private so you will not be able to view it unless we add you.

We will be gradually reducing the amount of information posted on our website and we will focus on keeping our App and Twitter page up to date. 

If you are having any problems with our App or Twitter please contact the school and we can arrange to help you out!!
