Names are important; they tell us something about who we are, to which family we belong and something of our story.
There is something unique and special to be called St Michael's. St Michael is an Arch-angel and his name means
"He who is like God." Our Catholic tradition teaches us that when a saint or angel gives their name to us or a place, we enter into a special friendship relationship with them.
St Michael minds, cares and protects all those who come to his parish and school, which bear his name.
Under his guidance we come to know, love and serve Christ who is the reason for our school; through Christ all things were made and so every aspect of knowledge mirrors something of the Beauty, Goodness and Truth of God.
Through our participation in the life of our parish and school we learn to be disciples of Jesus, who are to make disciples for Jesus.
Children in Year 4 are invited to take part in the Becoming Church Programme, which celebrates the First Reconciliation, Confirmation and First Holy Communion of our young people. This programme helps parents to prepare their children for further initiation into the Church. The lessons begin at the start of each school year and continue until the Feast of Corpus Christi in June.
Each Monday morning the whole school participates in meditation in the Parish Centre led by Father Tony. Parents are welcome to join the children and teachers for a time of reflection and meditation. This is a very special element of St Michael's Catholic School.
