Our history

St Michael's Primary was established in 1971 by the Sisters of Mercy and has a rich history filled with various celebrations, events and milestones.

The school began with an enrolment of 173 students and was temporarily located in the St Michael's Boys Home. By the end of its first year, the school had built five classrooms and an administration block. By 1973, the school had grown to become a two-stream school.

During the 1980s, building development continued with the introduction of a Special Education Unit and the school becoming four-stream. St Michael's welcomed our first lay principal, Dr Jennifer Fraser, in 1991 as we celebrated our 20th anniversary.


Today, St Michael's Primary is one of the largest systemic primary schools in the Diocese of Parramatta and has a reputation for quality education and academic excellence. We have come a long way from our humble beginnings, with our students now learning in modern, richly-resourced agile spaces with the latest technology integrated across the curriculum.

Throughout the years our mission has remained the same — to provide a quality education with a firm foundation in our Catholic faith and Mercy tradition.
