The school and parish work in partnership to nurture a strong faith community. As a school, we strive for excellence in all academic areas and value the unique needs and talents of every student. All students are encouraged to put forth their best efforts and are challenged each day by their teachers to reach their potential.

Ms Kim McCue

Our school was established in 1959 with funding from St Michael’s Belfield parish by the Dominican Sisters with Sr M Joachim as the first principal. As the school grew in enrolments so did the need for new facilities to accommodate, which were supported by the efforts of our Parents and Friends Committee formed in 1973. In 1975, the first lay principal, Mr. Neville Dodd, was appointed and the school continued to grow over the following decades. We are proud of the multicultural community that lives on today and enjoys a positive relationship with our parish.

St Michael’s Positive Education framework and the SMILE strategy ensures that we continue to build on the great work of the past.


In partnership with parents and parish, we are committed to:

  • educating children in the Catholic faith
  • nurturing a welcoming community that proclaims, models and celebrates the Gospel of Jesus Christ
  • creating a learning environment which provides a high quality education for children and inspires in them a desire for lifelong learning
  • fostering a spirit of service that encourages children to share their gifts in order to make a difference to their world.
