“St Michael’s has helped shape our daughters into confident, spiritual and well-educated community members. Our daughters are challenged, encouraged and supported to reach their fullest potential. They feel happy and safe when they are at school. We, as parents, enjoy the partnership we have with St Michael’s in providing our daughters with the education and guidance they need as they progress through the school.”– Karen Smith, parent
The education we offer at St Michael’s is a holistic one that focuses not only on curriculum and the academic basics of a good education, but also has a spiritual and personal focus and a particular emphasis on social and emotional wellbeing. Our high quality and reflective teaching practices, together with the nurturing of school-wide positive relationships (our behaviour framework in action) are qualities that are highly valued by our families.
St Michael’s is a two stream school that is constantly seeking to improve facilities, resources and the quality of service it provides to families.
Sporting opportunities are made available for students such as rugby league, netball and soccer along with in-class physical education. Classroom music is taught from Prep to Year 6 and instrumental music instruction is available for students in a wide range of instruments. Students in Years 4-6 participate in Public Speaking.
Information Communication Technology (ICT) is integrated into teaching and learning and each student has access to their own personal device including laptops, iPads and other mobile electronic devices.
Parent involvement at St Michael’s is highly valued and very welcome, as parents support is a key indicator in student learning.
Families at St Michael’s value our school for its warm, small town country feel. St Michael’s has developed a Whole School Positive Behaviour Plan which underpins the positive behaviour choices expected of students within the school. We encourage self-discipline and offer an environment in which students can learn without disruption. In turn students are required to maintain high standards of behaviour and to respect the rights of others. Students, parents and teachers have the right to a safe, orderly school environment where students can grow academically, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually in order to learn.
Our school has the services of a school counsellor and learning support teacher to support student learning and social emotional development.
At St Michael’s, we welcome all who seek to share in our community and the values which make us who we are. Join us! Enquires are always welcome and encouraged.
