We provide a caring and inclusive environment for all students. Our students are viewed as individuals and are encouraged to achieve their full potential by following our Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) principles and the charism of St Mary MacKillop.
We are committed to excellence in growth where we value and celebrate each student’s uniqueness.
Our personalised teaching and learning is designed to meet each individual students’ needs and active participation in learning is encouraged.
Catholic values and traditions are taught within the life of the school. St Michael’s is committed to developing faithful leaders. The Josephite charism is embedded in many school learning and mission-related activities.
Religious Education (RE) is taught daily and integrated into daily life scenarios. Throughout the year, significant Church and community occasions are commemorated with special Masses, liturgies and assemblies – including the Year 6 Mass with the Bishop, ANZAC Day, the Feast of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, Greatpeople Day, Mission Month and World Environment Day.
Through embracing the mandate of our foundress, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop – "Never see a need without doing something about it" – St Michael’s also provides whole-school activities and other opportunities for our students and school community to support those less fortunate in our local area and care for the environment.
At St Michael’s, students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning. Authentic learning is the emphasis on developing the skills and competencies of critical and creative thinking, collaboration and communication.
There is a strong focus on technology with the use of iPads and classroom learning technologies, as well as opportunities for coding, robotics and STEM learning.
Our committed staff continually engage in professional learning to ensure we provide contemporary learning experiences that challenge and extend the learning of all students. We strive to provide learning experiences that enable students to apply critical thinking and represent their understanding in a number of creative ways.
As a school, we value knowing our students in order to meet their needs holistically and support them in reaching their full potential.
Our staff are aware of the privilege and responsibility inherent in their relationship with the students, parents and community.
Our highly experienced and dedicated teachers and support staff work to provide effective learning experiences for every student in their care.

Staff are conscious of the role parents play as first educators for their children and are fully supported.
