Thank you for considering St Michael’s Primary School for your child to attend. Whilst we are a Catholic school, we welcome students from all backgrounds and faiths and believe diversity enriches our school community. However, we do ask all parents/carers to give an understanding that they will respect the life, nature and identity of our school.
Enrolment procedures are in line with our Enrolment Policy which is included in the Policies & Other Information side tab. In general, this states that an interview with the principal is required before enrolment can be confirmed. Children must have turned five by the 30th April of their first year of school to be eligible for enrolment.
We also have a comprehensive transition program that eases children into the start of their school life. We want this time in your children’s lives to be a positive and happy experience.
School fees for the current year are listed in the Parent Information Handbook. School fees cover all expenses for the year, including incursions and excursions. We have a set family fee per year, regardless of how many children you have. Added to this there are school levies for each child based on their year level. Fee payments can be paid in full or in instalments – we are flexible with this and you can nominate how you would like to pay. If you have a healthcare card or other concession card you may be eligible for a fee concession. We can also make arrangements for families who are experiencing hardship – it is not the intention of the school to add to a family’s burden.
For enrolments, interviews and tours of the school, please contact the school office for an appointment with the Principal.
Principal: Mrs Jenny Miller
Address: Davis Street, Heyfield

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are limited with school tours. The directive from DOSCEL is to reduce the number of people onsite, for the health and safety of our staff and students. We will endeavour to have a virtual tour available in the very near future.
The pandemic has also impacted on our transition program. We will be conducting online ‘meet and greets’ with our new families and students for 2021. These will commence at the end of term 3 and then it is hoped that new students will be able to attend school for onsite transition in term 4.
We welcome all enquiries about enrolment so please come and visit us.
