St Michael's Primary School, Nelson Bay is located in a beautiful bushland setting.
St Michael's staff have a commitment to the total development of each pupil in promoting mature growth. Children need to learn to satisfy their needs in a way that respects the rights of others. Part of the learning process is learning how to act in a responsible, Christian manner within the expectations of our school, parish and wider community.
Staff are dedicated and are continually evaluating the effectiveness of the teaching/learning programs. We have a strong focus on literacy and numeracy with the integration of learning technology a major aspect in all curriculum areas. Learning is change and change is learning, not governed by set limits or parameters, where focusing on the positive is essential.
Significant programs include intensive reading, individual education plans, debating, Sport for Life, intensive swimming, Tournament of the Minds, Mighty Mates, school band, Seasons for Growth, Life Education, leadership and K-6 excursions. St Michael's has a culture of 'high expectations in a warm atmosphere'.
