Give your child the best opportunity to develop academically, spiritually and socially.


St Michael's Primary is a Catholic coeducational school that is influenced by the tradition of the Presentation Sisters. These Sisters had a significant impact on the establishment and development of our school, both physically and spiritually. St Michael's Primary was established in 1962. In living out the values of Christ, our school strives to 'Love One Another' the way Jesus challenges us to, both in our actions and words. Our motto is reflected in the way our community is taught and encouraged to respect the dignity and uniqueness of each person, and to reach out to those in need.

We are committed to providing each student with a learning environment that is engaging, empowering and reflective. Located in Blacktown South, we are a multicultural school which seeks to live out the values of Christ in a caring and supportive environment.



Religious Education at St Michael's Primary

In the footsteps of Nano Nagle

As a Catholic school influenced by the Presentation Sisters, the words of Nano Nagle to her sisters, echoes throughout our school, our mission and the way we educate our students. 'Love One Another' is our guiding principle in both our relationships with each other, and with those who are poor and marginalised in our world. We take seriously our responsibility to care for those in need, and it is our hope that graduates of St Michael's will carry this motto with them and be guided by it throughout their lives.

Technology now forms an integral part of a 21st century education and all our technologies enrich the learning experience for students and ensure that the education they receive is engaging and relevant.

Our learning spaces are flexible and inviting, and are places where children can engage in cooperative, collaborative and independent learning experiences. The learning spaces also provide specific creative learning in Science, Drama, Arts and Multimedia.
