We ensure each student is provided with experiences that nurture their individual learning, in an environment that is inclusive, supportive and challenges them to reach their full potential.
St Michael's is committed to the development of the whole child. In a spirit of partnership with parents and the parish of Good Shepherd, the school promotes the demonstration of Gospel values. Our Religious Education is the focus of all our Key Learning Areas and aspects of school life at St Michael's
In the spirit of our school motto, 'Faith and Virtue', we aim for students to know and love God in a caring and supportive environment. Our pastoral care programs focus on building relationships across the community and helping students to communicate openly, solve problems and become more resilient. In each of our endeavours, we acknowledge the person of Jesus Christ as our role model and as our inspiration.
We are called to engage all students with quality learning experiences that recognise diversity and optimise every student’s academic potential and life opportunity. Our talented staff draw on the latest educational research to nurture every child’s individual learning, and ensure their life at school has the best possible beginning. We ensure children are prepared for the future right from the start. We aim to build successful learners with a focus on learning how to learn. Our school also has many supports available:
St Michael’s has a variety of learning spaces for classes to utilise to facilitate a 21st-century learning environment – including flexible learning opportunities and outdoor learning spaces.
We have two large play areas including a grassed area encompassing two soccer fields, sandpit, play equipment and a ‘nature walk’. We also utilise Nowra Recreation Park for some sporting activities.
St Michael’s offers a variety of activities students can engage in outside the regular school curriculum, including:
St Michael’s is a safe and caring community. We care about the whole person, ensuring a focus on social and emotional wellbeing: "Catholic education holistically promotes the growth and development of the human person as an individual in relationship with others and within community".
St Michael’s is involved in the following initiatives:
Catholic schools strive to keep fees as low as possible so that more families can choose a Catholic education for their children.
In keeping with Gospel values, no child is refused a Catholic education due to financial inability or difficulty. New or existing parents who find themselves in this situation are encouraged to discuss fee concessions with the school principal who will treat the situation with understanding, sensitivity and confidentiality. It is the expectation that families with the capacity to contribute do so, so that our schools can maintain the high quality of education that Catholic education is known for and our families expect.
