A Message From The PIBG (PTA) Chairman


I am happy to see that there are Michaelians who are still interested in their Alma Mater. I am on the committee that will be organising the Opening Ceremony and was also on the Fund Raising Committee that raised the funds to build the new Primary school building.

I share your sentiments and will support the move to place our "old tyre" at a prominent location at the new school.I want you all to know that every cent raised to build the school came from private contributors.

Not a cent came from the government. St. Michael's still badly needs funds to maintain all our buildings and for new improvements.We have an annual collection for our Development Fund and we only call upon donors once a year. We do this in conjunction with the staging of our Annual Drama production. St Michael's will be producing "Camelot" this year.

Presently we are in the process of raising funds.Michaelians have always been the beneficiaries of the generosity of successive generations of the Michaelian family. We who have enjoyed the generosity of past Michaelians must acknowledge their contribution and show our gratitude by supporting present day Michaelians.

Every gift to the Building Fund supports our students. St. Michael’s being a government aided school, has to seek donations to cover the cost of many essential educational projects that continue to enhance the Michaelian vision for education.
A growing culture of philanthropy has seen significant contributions from past and present parents, grandparents, Old Michaelians, staff and friends of the School. Much has been achieved and we are grateful.We are again asking you to help us build for the future of St. Michael’s.Your Gift Makes a Huge Difference.

All contributions can be made to "SMI Development Fund". I am sure that Master Peter Khiew will be happy to accept the contributions on behalf of the school. Please liaise with the blogger.
