Message from the Principal

Welcome to St Michael's Primary School web site. We are a Catholic Systemic School in Kaleen taking students from areas of Kaleen, Giralang, Crace and Lawson. Catering for 200 students and their families. Currently we have eight classes from Kindergarten to Year 6 with an average class size of 25.

St Michael's School Motto is 'Live In Harmony'. It symbolises our desire to live in harmony with God, self, others and our environment. Each member of the St Michael's community, including the Parish Priest and parishioners are encouraged to live in harmony by becoming directly involved in school activities and programs and sharing their unique gifts with the community. Harmony happens when people make a commitment to help one another and to work towards a common purpose.

Our patron saint, St Michael the Archangel, continues to guide and protect the St Michael's community. The image of the "Angel of the Future" is a beautiful, contemporary symbol which maintains the aspect of protection, while guiding us through a rapidly changing future. Its vibrant rainbow colours beautifully echo our logo, representing the harmony of living and working together. As we face future challenges together, we recognise the angel as a true helper – here, now, for all; imparting hope, peace, healing and wisdom to the world.

I look forward to personally welcoming you to St Michael's community in the near future.
