School Ethos

St Michael School strives to receive its students with the same healing and teaching attitude that Jesus showed towards all those who befriended him. Thus, Christ the Teacher is our model on whom we cast our behaviour and all our activities.

Inspired by the call received by St George Preca, St Michael School lives a particular spirituality where the virtues of humility and meekness are the prevalent attitudes that guide us. At St Michael we work through our daily routine with the knowledge that we are constantly nourished by the presence of God and strengthened by the protection of St Michael the Archangel.

To provide a holistic education, we endeavour to form an educational environment which encourages the student to develop new talent and obtain the necessary knowledge that empowers him to live up to his potential.

 

School Mission Statement

St Michael School is a Catholic Secondary School run by the Society of Christian Doctrine, M.U.S.E.U.M. The school caters for boys aged between 11 and 16 years.

Our community continuously strives for a better life inspired by the teachings of the Gospels and other human values. Together we assert that every individual is unique, and that his/her dignity is to be fully respected. Therefore, we do our utmost to instill in every student a vision of hope based on our faith in Jesus Christ.

We work hard to prepare each student to take up the challenges of an active and responsible participation in society, along with its varied cultures and environmental heritage.

 

School Vision

As an educational institution, we regard ourselves as part of a bigger educational body that works both within the local and the European level. By opting to take an active role in all educational activities, we open ourselves and get to know what other schools and institutions are thinking, planning, and doing.

Our school believes in inclusion and we work hard to make this ideal a reality. By inclusion we understand that every student, irrespective of his degree of abilities, has something particular and concrete to contribute towards our school and it is only when all these diverse elements come together that our school becomes a family, complete and united.

While every task is approached and executed with awareness of our limitations and with respect to the environment around us, we firmly believe it is our duty to actively contribute to society and pass on what we have so gratefully received.

Conscious that we are living in a world where basic values are constantly being challenged, we focus our energies on empowering our students with a critical sense of discernment towards all that seem to glitter but is not gold. We believe that it is only by being critical that one comes to obtain true freedom from being enslaved by our materialistic and consumerist society.

We do believe that if we are to succeed in inspiring students to live according these values, we also need to work closely with the parents and guardians, who have entrusted us with the education of their sons. Together, we pull the rope in the same direction as we walk the path of our life.
