About the role
"Our vision at St. Michael's is that every child receives an excellent education and feels valued for who they are. We want to lay a foundation of curiosity, tapping into children's natural inquisitiveness about the world around them, and to foster their ambition by recognising and responding to their talents and individuality. We seek to treat everyone in our community with love, honesty, forgiveness and respect, rooted in the principle of 'do to others as you would have them do to you' (Luke 6:31)"
