St Michael's Catholic School
Palm Island


Our School Motto

"To Truth By Love"  - comes from 'witnessing the power of truth and love'

The motto is based upon the charism of 'Mary or the Passion', Hélène de Chappotin the founder of the order Franciscan Missionaries of Mary inspiring others by spreading the word of God through simple hardworking lives devoted to serving God within the community.  The tradition is one of seeking justice and equity despite hardship and adversity seeing God's beauty in all.

St Michael's School community look upon the value of respect as of utmost importance.

Our school pledge

I promise to respect God,

I promise to respect myself,

I promise to respect other people,

I promise to respect the environment.

To Truth, By Love.
