18 Mar 2017 (Sat) - Term 2 Week 1 & 2 Matters [Personal Grooming, Holidays Homework, BYOD, etc ... ...]


Dear Parents, 
 

Time flies and I hope you managed to have a good and restful break with the family. Term 2 is usually packed with events, especially as it is a full term - 11 weeks for us at SJI. With the start of a new school term, it'll be most helpful if you could gently remind and check your son if he had completed his assigned holiday homework, if any. A quick check on his personal grooming (e.g. haircut, nails, etc) will also be most appreciated.  
 
With the pervasive use of technology and it's 'invasion' in our everyday life, do note that the school has a "Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)" programme, where students will bring and utilize their personal computing device for learning. For the Sec 1s, BYOD will commence only in Term 3 and details on this will be shared with parents when we meet again at the end of Term 2. 

On a personal note, if you are considering a device for your son, I would strongly recommend that the boys be 'given' a recycled device. Do drop me an email should you need assistance in 'convincing' your son on this. The teenager needs to given the opportunity to be responsibility and ownership - to learn how to use and more importantly care for the device. Scratches and the rare dent on a new device is something not pleasant. Most importantly, this would be a good time for you to work with your son to set the rules on how he should manage his life his new 'friend' - the device. 

Have a Blessed Weekend ahead!

Project COPE 165 

As the Lasallian schools in Singapore mark 165 years of Lasallian presence in Singapore, the Lasallian family would like to embark on a project to help those who potentially may be 'marginalised' from society because of the possibility of being disconnected from society. From 1 April 2017 Singapore will no longer have 2G on its bandwidth. Mobile operators will cease 2G services and the spectrum will be used to provide for more advanced services like 3G and 4G. This will result in some people being disconnected. For more information, click <here>. The schools are responding to this situation with Project Cope 165 - a month-long project which aims to benefit (i) Selected residents of one-room rental flats and (ii) Migrant workers from a shelter.

The Lasallian family would like to seek your help in several ways: (i) Donate your old mobile phones and chargers (still in good working condition), (ii) Sponsor a phone or sim card by donating some money (Cheque payable to PROJECT C O LLP), (iii) Assist in checking the working conditions of donated mobile phones and/or (iv) Assist in distribution of phones and SIM cards and (v) Assist in teaching recipients on how to use their new phone. Your son may bring the items or cash/cheque to school on any day of the week. His class tutor will assist in safe-keeping the item/s if required. An acknowledgement slip will be given upon collection. Collection for the above will be done on 23 Mar (Thu) at the school canteen. We look forward to your generous support. If you have further queries, please feel free to contact LYNK at <sglynk@gmail.com>
