Mission & Strategic Directions

Strategic Directions

If the past few years have taught us anything, it is the need to be responsive, agile, resilient, and innovative. During this time, our young people have shown the remarkable capability to navigate uncertainty and change, to adapt and find positivity in their challenges and in their success.

Underpinning this has been a strength in the purpose of our Lasallian community to have hope, to support one another, and to continue to respond to those most in need, both locally and globally.

Following collaboration with the College Board and extensive stakeholder consultation, the College presents to you the strategic objectives of the next four years which will uphold and deliver the vision and mission of St Michael’s College.


St Michael’s College is a Catholic school in the Lasallian tradition which is committed to the human and Christian education of the young, especially the poor, through:


We are an inclusive and respectful community where each individual is known, valued and cared for, enabling them to feel confident to explore their curiosities, flourish and fully realise their potential.




Individual growth is achieved through engagement, opportunity and recognition, underpinned by a positive learning culture that is authentic, challenging and supportive.




Through a quality Lasallian education, inspired by the Gospel and a concern for social justice, students are empowered to better choose who they become as people, learners and leaders in the world.



A quality Lasallian education “is realised by offering a community and personalised environment where individuals can flourish as human beings and where they are open to hope and have a positive sense of life.” (Br Alvaro)

“I have come that they may have life, and live it to the full” (John 10:10)
