St Michael’s School, as a Catholic Primary School, recognises the uniqueness of each student.
The Sisters of St Joseph founded our school in 1921 with the aim of educating the whole person. We continue to strive to do this by offering varied educational activities.
Enrolment into the school therefore expresses a commitment by parents to fully support religious values, school policies, practices and activities. This commitment also extends to the Parents and Friends’ Association.
In accepting an offer of enrolment, parents agree to pay all school fees and charges by the due date. If genuine financial need exists, payment plans are available after discussion with the Principal.
At all times the Principal may enrol a student where it is in the pastoral interests of that family, regardless of all other factors. Such a decision would be made with appropriate consultation (eg The Parish Priest, The Catholic Education Office).
