The units apply the Inquiry style of learning. Assessment is completed in three styles; assessment for learning, as learning and of learning. Religious education is in the Discipline Based learning of the Victorian Essential Learnings.



St Michael’s Traralgon is part of St Michael’s Parish and as such the children undertake sacramental preparation as part of the Parish based , family centred and school supported program. Children in Grade 3 receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Grade 4, Eucharist and Confirmation is celebrated in Grade 6.


Mass is celebrated by Grades 3-6 at St Michael’s each Friday. Each Grade plans this celebration and many grades from within the level may attend. Whole school mass is celebrated on special occasions, such as the beginning of the school year and special feast days and each class is invited to whole school mass on the first Friday of each month. Each week a different Grade from Grades 3-6 are given the opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Over the term each Grade will be given the opportunity to participate.
