Principal’s Welcome

Michael Watt – Principal of St Paul’s Primary School

Welcome To St Paul’s Primary School

As a father of three, it is my wish that my children grow up with a strong faith that gives them values for life and a moral compass. I want my own children to form connections with others, to come home from school happy, to succeed academically and to know they have many people that care for them. These goals for my own children drive me everyday to become a better school leader because I value and want these things for your children too.

My educational career began as a learning Support Officer in 1998 at St Anne’s in Park Orchards.  I began teaching at St Brigid’s in Healesville in 2000.  Since then I have taught at St James in Vermont, I was a teacher and Deputy Principal at St Jude’s in Scoresby and also at St Luke’s in Wantirna.  I now consider myself very fortunate to be the Principal at St Paul’s in Monbulk.  I have completed two Masters Degrees.  A Masters of Educational leadership through Australian Catholic University and a Masters of Student Wellbeing at the University of Melbourne.

At St Paul’s our children are at the centre of all that we do. St Paul’s Catholic Primary School has a strong commitment to providing a safe and harmonious school environment where successful relationships thrive. The strength lies in the close partnerships between students, staff, parents and the wider community which is highly valued to us all. We promote and develop positive and respectful relationships. The school motto is: ‘Love One Another’ and we act this out in a caring, cooperative, purposeful and success-oriented environment.

The school strives to engage all students and community members to be 21st century learners through the effective use of learning technologies and Google Apps for Education (G.A.F.E). Furthermore, the school has an Inquiry learning focus in learning areas of the curriculum including; History, Science, Geography, P.E and Health, Arts, Technologies and a range of General Capabilities.

Please call Helen in our office on (03) 9756 7201 and book in for a school tour.  I would love to show you around!
