Excursions are programmed each year to support the learning program in the classroom. Particpation in excursions puts a 'real - life' element to topics being studied in class.

Concert

The annual concert is rotated between the learning communities each year.  The musical is usually an original piece created and supported by our Creative Arts teachers.  The students have significant input into the concert, creating sets, costumes and helping to refine the script.

Each year the concert is held in Bukatila and is a highlight of our student's time at St Michael's.
 

School Debating Team

Camps

Each student will experience an ‘Outdoor Education’ experience while in a particular learning community.  Through camp experiences students are challenged, have opportunities to practice independence and resilience as well as have opportunities for hands on curriculum learning.

Junior Learning Community students participate in a South Australian based Camp.  Middle Learning Community Students travel to Ballarat for the Sovereign Hill Costumed Schools Program,  while Year 6 students travel to Canberra each year, visiting venues such as the War Memorial, Migration Museum, Institute of Sport and Parliament House.  The Canberra trip is a highlight of the Year 6 experience.

Music Programme

A number of opportunities exist for students to undertake the learning of a musical instrument. The school outsources tuition in keyboard and guitar providing facilities for tutors for teaching purposes. Lessons can be held during school time and parents pay these tutors directly.

Music tuition is offered to all families of our school by private music tutors.  We have piano, keyboard, flute, saxophone, clarinet, guitar, drums and singing teachers.   

Below is a You tube clip that the guitar students prepared. 

The song is called "5-3-0 Rock And Roll" and it was written and recorded by Brenton Manser (our guitar teacher) for the guitar guide he put together for the students.

For further information regarding music lessons please contact the front office on 8388 7228 or  stmichs@stmichaels.sa.edu.au
