Supporting SMIS: The Annual Fund
St. Michael’s International School is a not-for-profit independent school. We keep tuition as low as is practically possible, whilst maintaining the integrity of the School. To achieve this 80% of all tuition fees is committed to staffing our academic programs. These programs are then enriched and supported through donations made to our annual fund.
Our Annual Fund is a year-long fundraising program which helps us to enhance and enrich many of the cultural and academic programs that makes St. Michael’s International School so unique.
In recent years, donations have helped us to install much needed shade in the playground, equipped our ICT suite with 27 new desktop computers and provided volumes of books for our library and classrooms.
In 2016-2017 the Annual Fund will be used to enhance facilities for all of our children with the installation of new playground equipment. This important initiative will complement the work due to be undertaken at the same time by the 70th Project and help to create an outdoor play space that our students can enjoy for many years to come.
