Michaels Private School is a N.P.O (non-profit organisation) and has always encouraged parent involvement and values the link between the family and the school. The Governing Body is made up of parents, thereby enabling the parent body to play a pro-active role in the management of the school. Parent participation in major school events is voluntary, and income generated from these events assists towards improvements at the school, thus benefitting all families in the school. Parents that participate in the major events (Michaelis Challenge cycle/run/walk race and Oktoberfest German Beer fest) will receive an incentive credit on their school fees at the end of each year. The Class Reps (School Mother’s Committee) assists in the smaller events at the school including the Osterverkauf / Easter Sale.
