Principal's Message

Dear Parents

Welcome to St Michael’s Catholic Primary School, Belfield.

The time your child will spend in Primary School is a most significant period in your child’s life and in the life of your family. Catholic education looks at the whole person. For children, education primarily occurs in the home. This is particularly true of the spiritual growth of your child. The Catholic School, as part of the parish, supports the family in this development. Therefore, the full benefit of the Catholic school occurs when you enable the school, the family and parish to work in harmony to create a true environment for faith development.

As a school we work closely with Fr Slattery  to follow the Gospel message of Jesus Christ and integrate His message of love into our daily activities. We strive for excellence in all academic areas and we are very proud of our students’ successes. All students are encouraged to put forth their best efforts and are challenged each day by their teachers to reach their potential.

We recognise that you as parents make an important contribution to the education of your child/ren and welcome your active involvement and participation in the life of the school. Many opportunities are available for you to be involved in our school.

The staff at St Michael’s Catholic Primary will work in partnership with you in meeting your child’s needs. We will guide, support and assist your child in every possible way and we take a genuine interest in your child’s wellbeing.  Our RIO Program is designed to focus on Resilience, Independence and Organisation. It aims to give children confidence and a positive outlook.

Our website is designed to assist you in becoming familiar with the operation of our school so that you are able to support us in the education of your child. Evidence suggests that when parents are actively involved in their children’s learning, educational outcomes are maximized.

Let us bring to life the words of our motto “Faith, Learning and Love”.
