On behalf of the St. Michael's Primary School we welcome you to our website. St. Michael's Primary School is a very proud country school set within the picturesque township of Tallangatta.
St. Michael's is a Catholic Primary School that services Tallangatta and district. We have classes from Foundation to Grade Six that utilise large modern classrooms all fitted with modern furniture to suit a range of learners.
St. Michael's Primary School has a history going back over 50 years. The school was opened in February 1958, not long after the township of Tallangatta was moved to accommodate the building of the Hume Weir.
The school was constructed at the same time as a new Church and Convent. The building of a Catholic school was the initiative of Fr. George Sait, who invited the Sisters of St. Joseph to staff the school. The first enrolment was 71 students in Years Prep to Form 2 (Year 8). The school was staffed by two Sisters of St. Joseph and a third Sister who was the cook and conducted music lessons from the convent..
