The International Club is a support and social group for St Michael’s Prep School parents who have come to Britain as non-British citizens, or British citizens who have lived abroad for at least one year.
Parents of all nationalities meet informally to share their experiences of living abroad and in Britain to help those new to the school community transition into their new lives here.
International Club members participate in a range of activities throughout the year, celebrating the diverse heritage and individual expertise of their members.
The International Club have many opportunities to socialise together and share some experiences within the local and broader communities. These include Coffee Mornings, afternoon tea, workshops (i.e. cooking class, life coach workshop), guided power walks and a London show, to name a few.
The International Club participates in school events by volunteering at Open Mornings, presenting in assemblies and hosting the popular International Food Booth during Pre-Prep Sports Day. Proceeds from this day are donated to a charity (local or abroad, as nominated and chosen by the members), or used to purchase assets for the school with an international flavour such as bi-lingual books. They also have a stall at St Michael’s Christmas Fayre.
Founded in 2009 with the approval of the school, the Club is self-run and also self-funded, with funds generated through events hosted for members.
