In Memory

The St Michael’s School community was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Colin Kenneth Hickling. He was not only a pillar of Bloemfontein and its community, but will also be remembered for his unwavering support, kindness and remarkable contributions to St Michael’s School for Girls. He joined the St Michael’s School Governing Body at a particularly significant time in 1977 and served as Chairman of the Board from 1982 to 1992. Since then his interest and goodwill to St Michael’s have truly been inspirational.
Our prayers are with Barbara and his family in this difficult time.

Founder's Day 2024 - 150 years

On the 8th of February 2024, St Michael’s celebrated 150 years!  This year’s theme, suggested by our wonderful Headmistress Mrs Stumpfe, is “150 years of grace”. We are so very thankful for God’s hand over our school over all this time and the grace and favour that we as a school have been shown.

New principal announced for St Michael's School for Girls

St. Michael’s School for Girls, the oldest girls’ school north of the Orange River and one of the top girls’ schools in the country, known for its dedication to academic excellence, character development and a tradition of nurturing young minds, is proud to announce the appointment of Mrs Noèline Stumpfe as its new Headmistress. Noèline Stumpfe has been acting in the position for the last twelve months.

Mrs Stumpfe has been a teacher at St Michael’s since 2010, when she came to St Michael’s as a teacher in the Primary School, later becoming the Head of the Primary School.  With Social Sciences, specifically Geography as her speciality, she moved up into the High School where she currently teaches Geography in the FET phase. She has been serving on the Senior Management Team of the school where she makes a significant contribution. 

Under her leadership, the school will certainly continue its 149-year tradition of academic excellence, while fostering a sense of responsibility and compassion in its learners. The school is excited going forth into 2024 with Mrs Stumpfe at the helm, as it is a very important year in the history of the school, celebrating its sesquicentennial celebrations.

On Thursday, 21 September, St Michael’s was thrilled to host Professor Gérard Labuschagne, a clinical psychologist and Director of L&S Management. His visit provided us with two opportunities: Prof Labuschagne graciously agreed to address the high school learners, which proved to be absolutely fascinating, but a number of staff also had attended a workshop on threat management in schools. We are proud to boast that we are Prof Labuschagne’s first school visit in the country, and look forward to implementing a number of skills he provided us with. Our sincere thanks to him for helping us get one step closer to making St Michael’s a happier and safer place for all!
