St Michael’s College is a small but caring Catholic secondary school staffed by committed teachers who promote strong values of faith and learning.
Students who love sport and the arts are well provided for with a range of programs such as inter-house swimming, cross country and athletics competitions, public speaking and debating, and musical and drama productions available.
Set in beautiful grounds, St Michael’s also features smart new facilities including a gym, a performing arts complex, and a hospitality training kitchen as well as a communication and design technology centre.
However, the college not only provides learning opportunities for the present but also for the future.
As a registered training organisation, St Michael’s can offer its students a variety of vocational education and training (VET) courses including business services, early childhood, hospitality, manufacturing, and tourism certificates.
Led by principal Michael Laidler with a current enrolment of 800 students, St Michael’s was proud to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2010.
Staff and students are now preparing for another big year in 2011 and the continued development of academic, vocational, cultural and sporting opportunities.
