Principal/s: Andrea Cox
Governing Authority: DOBCEL
Located in Horsham, Ss Michael and John’s Primary School provides a Catholic Education to the Horsham community and the surrounding rural areas. Our new school building was completed at the end of 2010 and provides flexible and open, indoor and outdoor learning spaces that have been built on the philosophy of supporting our students to become lifelong learners.
We aim to support children as they learn to respond to the Gospel in their daily lives and explore their emerging role in society by providing a learning environment that supports their intellectual, spiritual, emotional, physical and social development. We offer a broad and versatile curriculum that is designed to build independence, self responsibility and resilience. Ss Michael and John's take the needs of our students seriously.
We are especially proud of the programs we have implemented to ensure optimal learning for all students, but particularly for our students with additional learning needs. Ss Michael and John's is a PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) school. As emotional intelligence is very important in developing student wellbeing, the program teaches students about managing their own feelings and behaviours and how these impact on others.
