St Anthony’s International School, Dili
St Anthony's International School (SAIS) is the first AISNT Member School from outside the Northern Territory. It is located in Dili, Timor-Leste.
St Anthony's began as the Tutoring Tree and was started by Cristina Costa Ribero and Cesar Dias Quintas. Both were committed to providing choice in schooling for students in Dili, and aspire to build a school that provided schooling of a world class standard.
Most students at SAIS speak between two and four languages, but all instruction is in English. A modified Australian curriculum is used. They offer language programs in Tetum and Portuguese, the two official languages of Timor-Leste.
Sister School Relationship with Good Shepherd Lutheran College
SAIS has a formal sister-school partnership with the Leanyer Campus of Good Shepherd Lutheran College. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed at the school on the 24th August, 2017.
