This is a message from Mr Harneak Singh, our PIBG committee member, the secretary of OMA and old boy (class of 1980). Messages like this build us up, something constructive and refreshing.

Hi Mr Peter,
I went to the school this morning and was very surprised to see a Complaint Box at the Guard House, the main entrance to school.
Syabas to the management of SMI for coming up with a Complaint Box. Now parents can forward their complaints in writing for the school to act accordingly instead of just grumbling/complaining outside the school gate.
I suggest similar boxes, perhaps rename them as "Suggestion Box" be placed at strategic spots in the school building ie at the canteen, book shop or infront of the staff room. Students should be encouraged to give suggestions or feedback on improvements in the school.
These complaints can be in the form of actual complaints, critics or suggestions. The school management should form a "panel" to look into all these complaints. Complaints should be addressed promptly, critics should be looked into positively and suggestions should be viewed with an open mind. Alternatively, commendations for a job well done by individuals can also be highlighted. Once again, syabas to SMI Management team for coming up with this idea.
SMI - Towards 2012.

Sir,I'm not sure if this has been pointed out before, but the suggestion box located at the front gate just outside the guard house that bears the school's name says'ST MICHEAL' instead of ST. MICHAEL. A very serious spelling error.

Thank you for pointing that out, Joel. This will be rectified as soon as possible.

Hello Mr Peter Khiew,

I am not a Michaelean, but I would like to send some brouchers from Kyoto University to Form 5 and Form 6 students.

I couldn't get any contact number, or fax number of St Michael Inst in the internet. I posted my message in St. Michael Inst Facebook page, and someone directed me to your site. It would be a great help if you can suggest me a better way to contact St. Michael administration. We would like to send the broucher by post.

Thank you
