St Michael’s Catholic Primary School, Thirroul was founded by the Sisters of St Joseph in 1940 and is a part of the Diocese of Wollongong. Our school has a strong link with the local parish, providing opportunities for faith development through the implementation of sacramental  programs. The responsibility of education is actively shared with our parents who are closely involved in the life of the school.

Our school vision- “Inspiring excellence in learning, leading and living the faith,” guides us and ensures that our students receive the best possible opportunities. We are proud of the strong academic achievement that exists at St Michael’s. Apart from implementing outstanding programs in Religious Education, literacy and numeracy, we offer our students involvement in diverse experiences such as chess club, school choir and band, representative sport and participation in various competitions. There is also a strong focus on effectively using technology to enhance learning.

At St Michael’s we are following “The Leader in Me,” a student leadership framework, based on Covey’s 7 Habits. The program encourages individuals to take responsibility for their learning and for their relationships with others. It also creates opportunities to allow students to recognise and use their own gifts and talents.

I am extremely proud to be Principal of St Michael’s Catholic Primary School. I warmly invite you to peruse our website and I welcome any feedback. If you would like to visit our school please feel free to contact the school office and we would be delighted to give you a tour of the wonderful facilities.
