A new Award for Old Michaelians

We are excited to announce the introduction of a new Awards program to recognise the outstanding achievements of our Old Michaelians and the contribution they make to the wider world. For almost 130 years, Old Michaelians have been making a difference and we want to celebrate and acknowledge their work. Shine a light on an Old Michaelian you know by nominating them for an Award today.

A new Award for Old Michaelians

St Michael’s Grammar School is renowned for our exceptional wellbeing and academic programs and our commitment to innovative and holistic approaches to teaching, learning and caring. We empower our students to approach their lifelong learning journey with courage, confidence and a strong sense of social justice so that they leave us with the skills, knowledge and character to be contributing citizens of the world.

Our graduates leave with the determination to follow their passions, the confidence to lead and the wisdom to live balanced and meaningful lives inspired by a commitment to making the world a better place.

The inaugural Old Michaelian Contributing Citizen Awards formally recognise and celebrate Old Michaelians who are making, or have made, a significant contribution to the community, and in doing so, inspire our students to strive to do the same.
