Principal's Message

kayleenWelcome to the web site of St Michael’s Catholic Primary School, Mittagong. St Michael’s is one of three Catholic primary schools located in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. Being a parish school, we work closely with the Parish of St Michael’s, Mittagong, in providing a Catholic education for children that live in our parish. It is one of 30 Catholic systemic primary schools in the Diocese of Wollongong, administered by the Wollongong Catholic Education Office, under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Wollongong, Bishop Peter Ingham. 

At St Michael’s we aim to live out our vision statement, by creating an environment in which all children who leave our school have a positive sense of community; that they have an appreciation of, and respect for themselves as valuable people; that they have respect for other people and the world in which they live; that they have been given the opportunity to attain their academic potential, and are aware that learning is a life-long experience.

We firmly believe that parents are the first educators of their children and we encourage the participation of parents in the life of the school. 

Recently our school has been able to improve our facilities due to Federal Government funding through the Commonwealth Building Grant Authority as well as the Building the Education Revolution stimulus package. These works have included the refurbishment of six classrooms, library and our school hall, as well as the construction of four new classrooms, covered walkways and new student toilets. Our school has made significant contributions to the local community since 1891 and, with these new facilities, is now well positioned to provide a quality Catholic education for many years to come.

If you are interested in finding out more about our school you are very welcome to visit at any time.
