    _____________________________________________________________________________
     

    Dear Parents, 

    Settling into a new school term, there are many things that the boys are trying to cope with, your continued support is much appreciated as we help these young men to learn how to learn and learn how to live. Our congratulations too to the Sec 2 award recipients at the SJI 162nd Anniversary Parade. For the parents who sons are on parade, do take some time off to be with and show support for him. 

    With the samba beat reaches a new peak this weekend, the SJI Students' Council will also be organizing a World Cup Screening Event in SJI on 14 of Jul (Mon) at 0210 hrs. Students with no private transport are to report in SJI by 0930 hrs at the amphitheatre where arrangements have been made for them to catch up on some sleep before the match. Students who are coming in with their family can report at 0200 hrs. All students are advised to sleep early and have sufficient rest before coming. Notice to Parents, click <here>

    As part of the Secondary 2 Religious, Moral and Social Education (RMSE) programme, the Sec 2s were made aware of the plight faced by the physically disabled and had through the Lent Project collected food items for the Handicapped Welfare Association (HWA) earlier this year. Following the success of the Lent Project, the Sec 2 Level is supporting HWA's <Small Change Makes A Difference>, where the students will be assigned with a coin bank to save their coins and loose change for a term. The money collected will then be donated to the Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA) to fund and support the various programs for its members. Through this program, we hope that the Sec 2s will gain a positive experience for a good cause and developing a good habit of saving. Your support can come in the form of constantly reminding your son to do his part – to keep his change and giving it to someone who has lesser. Note to Parents, click <here>

        31 May (Sat) - June Holidays 
        [Holiday Matters ... ...] 
        _____________________________________________________________________________
         

        Dear Parents,

        Thank you for taking time off for the Parent Teacher Meeting yesterday. It was a real pleasure meeting up with many of you. Thank you too for your many kinds words of encouragement and affirmation. 

        It is of utmost importance that we encourage the boys to be always put in their best in whatever they do. At the end of it all, it's the effort that counts. Last week, more than 360 Josephians (both boys and girls), including 54 Sec 2s, took part in Hair for Hope (HfH) 2014. These young men and women showed through their actions - shaving their heads to raise funds and awareness of childhood cancer. 

        School life is getting a little stressful for all of us and I'm sure we're glad for the June break. There are many things that we are all trying to manage. Do be heartened that the issues that challenges us daily are 'normal' as the boys start their journey into puberty. Their results in the recent Mid-Year Examinations is an indication of their effort - for a good number of them, a lack of it. There is a need need for the boys to be responsible for themselves and we (at home and in school) must continue to work together to help these young man in formation. At the end of the day, what's essential is that we reassure them that we are always there - to support and guide them. 

        To all you parents, we appreciate and look forward to your continued support in the coming semester. Have a Blessed Holidays ahead!

Most importantly, we seek your patience and understanding ... ...

              Dear Parents, 
               
              In the coming week, your son will be receiving his scripts for the recent Mid-Year examinations. Credit must be given to the vast majority of Sec 2s who have put in much effort and have obtained commendable grades. For a handful of Sec 2s, we look forward to working with you so as to help him achieve his fullest potential for the coming semester. 
              What's most important is that we affirm these young men for their efforts and teach them the value of hard work, or for some of them - the lack of it. We need to let them know that no matter what happens and regardless of their results, we will always be there for them. In the meantime, ddrop your son's tutor/s and/or myself an email if you have any queries. However, I do seek your patience in giving us some time to get back to you ... ...

              Have a Blessed Weekend ahead!

                          Dear Parents,

                          Thank you for taking time off for the talk last Friday. Thank you too for your many kinds words of encouragement and affirmation as we journey together with your son into his teenage years. Your patience and kind understanding was most appreciated. For the parents who were unable to be present, kindly note that the briefing slides are attached. If you still have any queries, please feel free to email your son's class tutors or myself. 

                          The SJI Carnival is, once again, upon us. While we may have shifted campuses, home was never defined by where the school is. Instead, wherever we gather as a community and wherever we come together as one, that is home. In that spirit, the name that the students have chosen for this year's carnival is "Home" which is on 5 of Apr 2014 (Sat) from 0900 to 1500 hrs. All profits from this year's carnival will be donated to Assisi Home and Hospice as well as HopeHouse. For the past months, the students have been hard at work putting together the carnival. We look forward for your continued support for the students as they push forward to make this year's carnival a success. Kindly also note the other events that your son may be involved in for the coming weeks ... ...
