The Parents’ Association and the school work closely together so that parents feel welcome and part of the school community. All parents of current students are members of the association and all your views are important to us. You can contact your class representative at any time to discuss issues you feel need to be addressed by the committee.

St.Michael’s College parents' ‘HIGH SPIRITS CHOIR’, first began rehearsals in the school hall in Feb 2014 and has 34 members to date. We meet every Tuesday evening from 7.30-9.30 under the patient supervision of our musical director Magdalena Grupa, who is herself a professional vocalist and voice coach.
We sing at school and charity events and with other school parents' choirs. New members are always welcome. There are no scary auditions and the only entry requirement is to want to sing and have fun. Why not come along to a few rehearsals and see if it might be for you.
