Our school’s pedagogy reflects the overarching principles and approach to learning outlined in the Sydney Catholic Schools’ Statement on Authentic Learning. By connecting to the real world of students’ lives, authentic learning enables students to become lifelong learners who contribute to society and the wider world as active and discerning citizens. Authentic learning is central to our work as Catholic educators because it promotes the continual growth and wellbeing of the whole person; spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.

Members of our community are invited to participate in an all-embracing, all-welcoming learning partnership. Our students are part of a safe and caring community that respects, trusts and treasures each individual and their achievements. Diversity is welcomed and celebrated within our community.
“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” – Albert Einstein
At St Michael’s we recognise that a child’s ability should never be underestimated. We inspire our students to use their passion and enthusiasm as keys for achieving success and meaning in everything they do.
