When school starts on Jan 3, 2008, SMI is ready for yet another challenging and exciting school session.
Sixteen new teachers are being posted to SMI for the new school session. The number of staff in the morning and afternoon sessions will see an increase, with a few new counsellors added in to the fold.
Staff meeting, to brief teachers on expectations and new developments, is scheduled for Dec 31, 2007, 8am.
Mr Phoon is the principal while Cikgu Tauhid, Mr Woon, Mr Loo and Cikgu Ramli are the senior assistants 1 (admin), 2 (student affairs), 3(co-curriculum) and afternoon head respectively.
Students are equally excited when school reopens. Michaelians are one unique lot who like coming to school irrespective of the days.
During the holidays, many boys could be seen mingling around at the foyer, making the school their favourite spot to meet one another. Scouts, Michaelian Chinese Orchestra and Michaelian Military Band members make use of the break to practise and perfect their skills.
Parents and their charges could also be seen buying books, all preparing for the new term.
I observe that Michealians' zeal and passion (old and current) continue to burn within them, that's wonderful and amazing about our children in St Michael's.
Among the newly-constructed features are a refurbished office area, with a staircase that leads to the administrative block (visitors no longer need to pass by the classrooms on the first floor), a meeting room for senior teachers and members of the Old Michaelians Association, a more conducive partitioned office area for senior assistants and a bigger staff room (under construction).
