St Michael's Church School

St Michael's is a co-educational Anglican Primary Day School situated close to all bus routes in the centre of Christchurch (New Zealand). It is a member of the Independent Schools. The School, with a roll of just under 200, provides an education for New Entrants (Year One) to Year Eight, after which pupils move to a variety of Independent, Integrated, and State Secondary Schools. There is one class at each level of the School. 

The School aims to provide educational experiences which will develop the spiritual, intellectual, cultural and physical needs of each child in a well balanced pro gramme. 

The religious life of the School pervades the whole programme and children are helped towards an apprecia tion of sound moral and spiritual values. 

All children are required to participate in the Religious programmes in the School: morning assemblies, class activities, devotions, and weekly School Masses held during the School day and three times each year to attend the Parish Mass on a Sunday - Mothering Sunday, Founders' Day, and the School Carol Service in the fourth term. 

The School maintains a close relationship with its Parish Church of St Michael and All Angels which follows an Anglo Catholic tradition.
