Our Principal

Welcome to Mt St Michael’s College.  We value and appreciate your interest in our College as a Catholic secondary school for your daughter.  Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions a parent will make.

Girls arrive at our College at the very beginning of the adolescent journey and leave as young women on the cusp of early adulthood. These are such formative years of development; building personal identity, values and beliefs, character and competencies and ultimately the lens through which the future will be viewed and embraced.

We understand that in these years in secondary education parents primarily want their daughter to be happy, healthy and safe. At Mt St Michael’s College we are renowned for our caring and nurturing environment; one in which every girl is known and valued. Our College staff extend care to each and every student, and are always willing to go the extra mile. It is our privilege to work in partnership with parents, who we acknowledge as the primary educators of your daughters.

At the heart of our culture is our faith and mission reflecting our motto“ in faith and love”. Framed by gospel values we know that this education is not simply for ourselves; rather it is to make a difference in our communities and in our world, hence the importance of giving back to others.

Within this learning environment we provide a balanced education; one in which every student can achieve and be the best she can be. We have a love of learning and we have a proud tradition in achieving excellence in the academic, cultural and sporting arenas. Our co-curricular program is exceptional, enabling our young women to participate in community service and social justice groups, explore new realms of learning, develop new skills, form friendships with students across all year levels and be happy, healthy and confident.

I trust that you enjoy exploring our website, learning about our history and tradition, our rich and diverse learning programs and meeting the people who form our community, especially our beautiful young women of whom we are very proud.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Mt St Michael’s College family.
