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. Students across the school have the ability to access 1-1 technology in the form of iPads. The school has a state of the art library, resource/meeting room, spacious multipurpose room with cooking facilities and a flourishing Garden. The School is located on five acres which include a football oval, playground, sandpit and cubby house.
At St. Michael's, we understand the importance of teaching each individual child in our care based on what we learn about them. Each child is different, so we take the time to develop the relationship we need to understand how best to support individual development. We believe that every child can reach their full potential. Through supporting students with academic needs, social emotional support and faith development, we educate the whole child.
Positive Behaviour Intervention and Support is core to our philosophy in regards to student behaviour. At St. Michael's, we believe in teaching the students how to behave, rather than expecting them to just know what to do in a school environment. We have three school wide expectations: Be Safe, Be a Learner, Be Responsible. These expectations underpin our teaching and learning in regards to behaviour.
St. Michael's Primary School is committed to providing a child safe and child friendly environment, where children and young people are safe and feel safe, are able to actively participate in decisions that affects their lives. St. Michael's is committed to our Child Protection Program, which is made up of work systems, practices, policies and procedures designed to maintain a child safe environment and to embed an organisational culture of child safety within the School community. Our Program deals specifically with child protection issues and is designed to ensure compliance with the Victorian Child Safe Standards and related child protection laws.

Appointments can be made at any time for a school tour or for further information. If you would like to know more, please don't hesitate to contact Kelly in our office.
