26 Feb 2017 (Sun) - Term 1 Week 9 & 10 Matters [Fraternity T-shirt, Sports Day, Mass Swim, eLearning, etc ... ...]



Dear Parents, 

With the term coming to an end, kindly take note of the various upcoming school events such as Sports Day, Mass Swim, E-Learning Day, etc. As you had just met your son's class tutors earlier during the Sec 1 Orientation, do note that there will not be a parent-teacher meeting for Sec 1s this term. Please feel free to contact your son's class and/or subject tutors if you have any queries. Click <here> for email addresses. 

With the 'invasion' of technologies into the various aspects of daily life, the positive well-being (or Cyber-Wellness) of Internet users is of utmost importance. Many thanks to the more than 80 parents who took time off on a Saturday morning to come together share and learn more this at the Parenting Workshop. Cyber-Wellness is ever more so urgent as a good number of the Sec 1s, for the first time, 'own' their own mobile phones. The Sec 1s have just started their lessons on Cyber-Wellness. This involves an understanding of online behaviour and awareness of how to protect oneself in cyberspace so that they can become responsible digital learners. Students are also made aware that, when navigating cyberspace, the need to demonstrate respect for self and others and also how to practise safe and responsible use of technology. Through social media, the boys are also exposed to the potential risk of meeting strangers that could threaten their safety. The boys must be reminded constantly of the need to be a positive peer influence by harnessing technology for collaboration, learning and productivity, as well as advocating correct use of technology for the good of the community. On this matter, do note that parental monitoring and supervision is of utmost importance

In the coming week/s, your son will be receiving some of his results for the various class test/s. These 13 year-old are being confronted with many new subjects for the first time which they might find rather daunting, both in terms of the content and the ways in questions are phrased. Therefore, if your son's results are what may seem to be less than ideal, do spend some time to talk to him to find out how we (child, home and school) can work together to help these young men in formation. The boys will need some time to gradually ease into the tempo of life in secondary school and the demands that come with it. 

Have a Blessed Weekend ahead!

    3 Feb 2017 (Fri) - Term 1 Week 6 & 7 Matters ['Ren Ri' (人日) Greetings, CCA Option, Inaugural Assembly, etc.]


    Dear Parents, 

    A very 'Blessed Birthday' to one and all on this day, the 7th day of the Chinese New Year, which is also known as 'Ren Ri' (人日) - everyone's birthday. The school community celebrated this day with a SJI 'Loi Hei' earlier today. On 10 Feb (Fri), the school will have our Inaugural Assembly where the entire school community gathers to begin the school year. At this assembly, SJI officially welcomes the newest addition to the school – students (Sec 1s and JC 1s) and members of the teaching and non-teaching staff. Kindly note that there will be no lessons on 3 Feb (Fri) and school hours will be from 1430 to 2030 hours.

    Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) as an integral part of the school curriculum and it complements the academic programme. CCA plays an important part in the all-round development of each student and enables him to actively participate in the life of the school community. These activities promote service, teamwork, leadership, group and self-discipline, loyalty, healthy living and sportsmanship. Every student is expected to keep to his chosen core CCA for his 4 years of secondary education at SJI. Please spend some time over the weekend to help your son select the Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) of his choice. 

    On a separate note, it may be of interest to you that there may be class tests scheduled for the various subjects in the coming weeks. Please check with your son on details (date, topic, format, etc) for the tests. It is also recommended that you spend some time going through with your son on academic work. This will help you better understand what he's going through in school and as a added bonus, some parent-son bonding.  

    Once again, a very Blessed Birthday to One & All!

    31 Jan 2017 (Tue) - Term 1 Week 5 & 6 Matters [Sec 1 Admin, Online CCA Option, etc ...]



    Dear Parents, 
       
    As we come to the end of January, it is quite clear that these newly minted Josephians are quite if not very comfortable in the new school environment. Many have found a new 'home' and are getting use to the rhythm of secondary school life. The Sec 1 class tutors have also been busy working with the boys, settling them down into class (literally) and teaching them to take ownership of their own learning environment - how to keep the classroom clean and more comfortable for learning.   

    With the boys adjusting to life in a secondary school, please spend some time over the next dew days to speak with and help him choose a few Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) of his choice. The school looks forward to your continued support in helping your son deciding on CCAs of his choice. It is also recommended that you spend some time talking to and understanding how he is coping being a Josephian. It is important to let them know that we, at home and in school, cares and is always around to lend them support. As always, please feel free to contact your son's class tutors or myself should you have any queries. For the contact of the Sec 1 Class Tutors, click <here>.

    As we welcome the Year of the Golden Rooster, I would like to extend my warmest wishes to one and all a year of wealth, happiness, good fortune and prosperity - of love and peace. Have a Blessed Week ahead!

    • Sec 1 CCA Matters [On-line CCA Option & CCA Information] 
      • CCA @ SJI. 
        • SJI recognises Co-curricular Activities as an integral part of the school curriculum and that it plays an important part in the all-round development of each student. We believe that active participation in a school-based CCA will provide our students with a full experience of our unique ethos and culture enabling our boys to experience a holistic Josephian education.
        • Participation in CCA. 
          Participation in a CCA is compulsory for all students and every student must join a Core CCA. Students are encouraged to remain committed to their CCA for the duration of their secondary education to enable them to deepen their knowledge and skills in a particular area. Sustained participation in the same CCA will also enable the student to be accorded higher recognition.
        • CCA Selection. 
          During the Secondary 1 Orientation programme, the Sec 1ss will attend the Sports Skills & Aesthetics Test, which is compulsory. They may also choose to attend the optional Sports Trials for selected sports CCA. Through these, students with the necessary pre-requisites to perform well and who are deemed able to cope with the demands of the sports are identified. The shortlisted students stand a better chance of securing a place in the sports CCA if they select that particular CCA. 
          Some of the more popular Uniformed Groups also conduct tests and interviews to identify potential members. 
          The various tests, trials and interviews are only part of an identification process and NOT a selection for a CCA.
        • CCA Allocation. 
          Allocation of CCA is based on the following criteria: (i) student’s talent, (ii) school resources, e.g. availability of places, (iii) student’s interest and (iv) possibility of getting a good CCA grade at the end of the 4 years.

    22 Jan 2017 (Sun) - Sec 1 Orientation ... ... Heartfelt Thanks



    Dear Parents, 
       
    With the lighting of the flame over the star, history was made. The Josephian Spirit - that flame which burns in each and every Josephian was lit for the first time in the hearts of the newest and youngest Josephians - the Sec 1s. The flame burning on the star (Signum Fidei) reminds us all daily of the calling to all Josephians. 

    Thank you for your presence at the Sec 1 Orientation Campfire. More than 700 parents and guests and an equal number of SJI boys witnessed the first campfire back at Malcolm Road. This will go down in the annals of Josephian history. From Signum Fidei to the SJI Spirit, we had it all. Witnessing the Sec 1s proudly singing the school songs and cheers with such great gusto and deep heart-felt feelings during the campfire will be something that will stay with those present for a long time to come. Looking at the Sec 1s, I was deeply humbled that I too have been blessed like them - to be called  a Josephian. But what was even more humbling was your over-whelming support. Your presence at the various events this past week is an affirmation for what we do at SJI and the need to always do them better.  
     
    Thank you for helping us make that unique SJI experience so real and alive for your son. As the Sec 1 Orientation Programme comes to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your patience and understanding these past 2 weeks. We would like to hear from you ... ... Your thoughts and feeling. Do drop me a mail. How time flies, it was just a month ago on 22 Dec that your son 'reported' to SJI and today he's a JOSEPHIAN (in the making). Orientation has ended and it's time we work together to help the newly minted Sec 1 Josephians adjust, cope and thrive with life in secondary school. 

    Once again, welcome to the SJI family and we look forward to working with you in the next 2 years. Have a Blessed Week ahead!

      <Returning to SJI> Principal's Note on 7 Jan (Sat) 
      =============================

      Dear Students and Parents, 

      Welcome home to SJI!  We're so happy that we can begin school at our redeveloped campus at Malcolm Road this Monday morning.

      As I walked around school yesterday, much of the campus is ready to receive our students and for school to begin. We will be able to teach and learn. We'll be able to conduct most CCAs/CASs as our facilities are ready. Most importantly, we will be able to be SJI at Malcolm Road again.

      However, as with all new homes, there are a few parts that need a little more time to complete. For example, we need to give the field some time to settle well before we can use it fully. Also, the ICT Team is finishing up their work to ensure that the school is fully ICT-enabled by the coming week. 

      We have asked your sons and daughters to bring rags to clean their classrooms in the spirit of our school values of service and community. We want everyone to help set up home in SJI. We'd like to do this in our Singaporean way of "gotong royong" as we attend to the areas we need to clean up better and set in place right in our new camps.  In addition, to complementing the cleaning up that has already been done to the campus, we believe our collective action of tidying up will help us strengthen the SJI spirit and community.  As you know, all redevelopment works have a feel of newness, but there is also the reality that there will always be a few parts that need a little more tidying up.  

      I write to you then to help you appreciate the reality of returning to school. Much of the redevelopment that we have shared through updates and photos is indeed that of a good campus with many facilities to deliver quality Catholic, Lasallian education. I believe we all are coming to SJI with many expectations and much excitement. There is however the reality that every new redevelopment takes a little more time to be spruced up; this is our reality too.

      I would like therefore to assure you that the school is on top of all the things that need to be done. We will complete them as quickly as possible. We have also worked hard to ensure that the campus and facilities are safe for our students to use and enjoy. 

      As we look ahead to settle down as SJI at Malcolm Road, we ask for your understanding, cooperation and prayers to help us set up home--the best home we can be!

      Ora et Labora

      God bless,
      Fr Adrian

      Compliments of the Season! Wishing you a beautiful Holiday Season and a New Year of peace and happiness.

Do also note that the earlier groupings on 22 Dec (Thu) are temporary and may be different from the class which a student is assigned to.

        27 Dec 2016 (Thu) - [Going Home to SJI (Malcolm Road campus)] <Latest !!!>


        Dear Parents, 

        It's with great joy that the school shares with you the good news that we will be returning to SJI (Malcolm Road campus) in 2017. Kindly see the abridged email below from Fr (Dr) Adrain Danker S.J.

        --------------------------------------------
        Email from Fr (Dr) Adrain Danker S.J. on 27 Nov (Tue) at 1030 hours
        ================================

        Dear Josephians (Staff, Students and Parents),

        At Christmas time, many of us await to receive presents. When we receive them, we eagerly unwrap the wrapping paper and trimmings to see what we've received. And then, we often smile in delight. This Christmas we can do this with more good cheer because we have have received the best Christmas gift of the year -- that we can return to our Malcolm Road campus and begin school there on 9 January 2017!

        This morning, the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) has  approved our return to our Malcolm Road campus. This is very good and happy news! Our wait has been long, and now the return home beckons us with great promise to really make SJI a school of significance for ourselves, for future generations of Josephians and for the larger community. We return home because of the generous efforts of these fine men and women, and on the strong foundations Josephians before us have built for us to be a school of significance 

        So, let us all to give thanks and praise to God -- by whatever name we call God -- for God's continuing goodness to our school.  Indeed, God's faithfulness in our lives is the joyful goodness that Christmas invites us all to celebrate. Truly, we can celebrate a Blessed Christmas for ourselves and for SJI this year!

        God bless you, and God bless SJI, always.
