About the School

St Michael's Primary School was established in the centre of Traralgon in 1902. The school was staffed by the Sisters of St Joseph until 1957, and from then until 1980 by the Brigidine Sisters. Today St Michael’s Primary School is staffed by 33 dedicated staff. Our school population is drawn from within the immediate residential area of Traralgon and surrounding areas. 

At St Michael’s Primary School we believe that as a Catholic community we can make a difference in the lives of children by developing and nurturing spiritual awareness through the teachings of Jesus Christ and by our example. Our children are supported in becoming independent, responsible and confident learners for life, enabling them to reach their full potential.  

We provide a safe, meaningful learning environment, which considers children’s individuality and supports children’s ongoing academic, social, emotional, and spiritual development within a contemporary global society. Our community is strengthened through sharing leadership, common goals and working together.  

This vision is achieved through our genuine commitment to developing contemporary teaching and learning practices that promote opportunities for children, as individuals, to learn within a structure that is flexible and caters for a variety of needs and learning styles.   

At St Michael’s Primary School we have a school-based values program centred on core values which enhance our Catholic faith and our relationship with each other. As a school we are also active participants in pastoral support programs, regional sports, and activities such as the Eisteddfod.
