Principal’s Message

01-belfield-principal-and-studentWelcome to St Michael’s Catholic Primary School Belfield where our school motto, Faith, Learning, Love underpins everything we do. You are invited to be a part of our faith-filled community where every child is nurtured to reach their full potential.

As we are a very family-oriented community, our students experience a strong sense of belonging to a joyful, supportive, and caring community which is evident in their respectful relationships with the staff and other students.

Our school is located on a quiet street in the tranquil, leafy suburb of Belfield. We have an expansive grass playground where the children have room to run and play freely as well as a large area with play equipment for the children to climb and develop their movement skills.

As a Catholic school, we are deeply committed to the development of the whole person. In partnership with our parish and families, we strive to bring about the teaching of Jesus and the Gospel message. Founded by the Dominican sisters, with ideals and beliefs based on Veritas, -truth- the school has continued to grow and has become a well-respected place of education in the Belfield area.

Here at St Michael’s, we achieve excellent academic results, educating 21st-century learners in contemporary, vibrant learning spaces. The learning opportunities provided by our highly skilled and dedicated staff ensure that optimum and individualised learning experiences are provided for all students.

We encourage our students to adopt a positive growth mindset to believe in themselves and set goals for improvement, empowering them to take responsibility for their own learning and development.

Our students in Years 3-6 have the unique opportunity to be involved in the Sydney Catholic Schools Amadeus project, where every student is provided with a musical instrument, either brass, woodwind, or string, and has personalised tutoring in small groups. The students also play in ensemble groups each week.

We look forward to welcoming you to our exceptional community here at St Michael’s Belfield.

01-belfield-out-history-statueOur school was established in 1959 with funding from St Michael’s Belfield parish by the Dominican Sisters with Sr M Joachim as the first principal. As the school grew in enrolments so did the need for new facilities to accommodate, which were supported by the efforts of our Parents and Friends Committee formed in 1973. In 1975, the first lay principal, Mr. Neville Dodd, was appointed and the school continued to grow over the following decades. We are proud of the multicultural community that lives on today and enjoys a positive relationship with our parish.

St Michael’s Positive Education Framework and the SMILE strategy ensures that we continue to build on the great work of the past.

In partnership with parents and parish, we are committed to:

  • educating children in the Catholic faith
  • nurturing a welcoming community that proclaims, models and celebrates the Gospel of Jesus Christ
  • creating a learning environment which provides a high quality education for children and inspires in them a desire for lifelong learning
  • fostering a spirit of service that encourages children to share their gifts in order to make a difference to their world.
