We consider ourselves lucky that after a week of heavy clouds, strong winds and rain, the weather was excellent for us today to organize our scheduled mid-term outings. It is part of our annual calendar to organize Cultural, Education and Recreational outings to the whole school in November.
The teachers with the help of LSA and other members of the staff plan these outings in which a particular aspect of the curriculum will be strengthened.
Our first formers were engaged in a number of Athletic events which they really enjoyed and managed to exhibit some of their remarkable skills.
Badminton is also proving to be a sport that our students enjoy. It was also nice to see some of our boys playing badminton in the school grounds, some even brought their badminton racket and shuttlecocks from home.
The new scholastic year started off smoothly and in a very organized manner thanks to the great efforts of the staff. All the students returned to a clean and orderly environment that makes learning and staying at school enjoyable.
On the first day, the students were grouped according to their respective Forms and members from the Administrative team, Form Teachers, Guidance Teachers and the Pastoral Team had the opportunity to address the students and talk to them about this year's main aims. Subject teachers were also given time to enable them to meet the students and talk about the syllabus and what every student need for every respective subject.
We are deeply honoured to have the opportunity to lead St Michael School’s community as it enters its 68th year of service. Through the years we have developed a strong appreciation for the holistic approach to education and we try our best to provide an outstanding opportunity for youths to grow and develop as mature Christian citizens.
The bad news is: time flies.
The good news is: you're the pilot.
It's school time again! You're probably feeling excited and maybe a little sad that summer is over. Some students feel nervous or a little scared on the first day of school especially the new comers because of all the new things: new teachers, new friends, and even a new school. Luckily, these "new" worries only stick around for a little while.
These are some tips for good school days:
* Get enough sleep.
* Eat a healthy breakfast.
* Try your best.
* Develop good work habits, like writing down your assignments and turning in your homework on time.
* Take your time with school work. If you don't understand something, ask for help.
* Keep a focused mind and sense of humor.
During this year try to make a new friends, so try to say hello to students you know and new ones that you don't. Make the first move and you'll be glad you did and so will your new friend!
We wish you all a successful scholastic year, full of learning experiences and joyful activities.
