    30 Mar (Sun) - Term 2 Week 2 [Upper Sec Subject Combination Sec 3, 2015 & SJI Carnival 2014]
    _____________________________________________________________________________
     

    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 ... ...
     
    Have a Blessed Week ahead!

          Dear Parents,

          As we approach the end of Term 1, your son would be getting back his results for the various subjects. Some of the boys are still trying to balance and cope with the demands of academic work and CCA which they might find rather daunting. 
          If there are significant gaps in your son’s learning, do contact your son's class and/or subject tutors so that we can work together and help him better prepare for the new term ahead. Do also 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. 

          Have a Blessed Weekend ahead!

              Dear Parents, 

              As your son gradually come to the realization that the year has started, it's good to check with your son oh his life in school ... ... At Level Assembly earlier this week, the boys had been reminded on this need for them to be responsible and take ownership, especially for their learning. It is also timely for you to check with him on his CCA - that he is regular in his attendance. For the parents of sportsman, do show them some 'tender loving care' as many of the sports have began their season. Your words of concern and encouragement will go a long way in sustaining you son's interest and passion. 

              Kindly also note that number of subjects would be having their class tests in the coming weeks. Do check with your son on the dates for his class tests. It is crucial that we, both at home and in school, work together during this time to help these young men adjust and cope. Please feel free to email your son's class and/or subject tutors if you need any clarifications. 

              Here's wishing all of you a very 'Blessed Valentine's & 元宵节' in advance ... ...

              Dear Parents,
               
              Thank you for your patience and understanding the past week as we start a new school year. Our apologies for any bad experience that you might have encountered during the morning drop off - the confusion and frustration that might have arisen as a result of the changes made to directing traffic in and out of the school in the morning. The school is monitoring and regulating the traffic in and out of the school in the morning to ensure the safety of the students in both schools and to minimize traffic congestion on Bishan Street 14 and the surrounding roads. Kindly see attached letter from Dr Koh. Click <here>.

              Once again, our apologies for the inconveniences and anxiety that the traffic situation in the morning may have created for you. We seek and appreciate your understanding as we have just moved into this holding school.  

              Have a Blessed Week ahead

              Dear Parents,
               
              New Year Greetings! Do hope that you'd enjoyed the extended holidays and bonding time with your son. A new school year has started and the teachers have been in school since late Dec getting things ready. Classrooms are generally comfortable with a single entrance and windows on one side. They are air-conditioned. Ventilation is thus crucial to "flush the air" out daily with fresh, germ-free air. This keeps illness (e.g. cough and cold) at bay and would be especially helpful for the boys with sensitive noses and sinus problems. Do let your son's class tutor know if you'll like to help make the classroom more homely - somewhere more conducive for teaching and learning. In addition, please note that CCAs for Sec 2s should start this week. Do remind your son to check his CCA schedule. Kindly also note that all Sec 2 are NOT TO BRING their devices (laptop / netbooks) to school until 20 Jan (Mon)

              As we prepare for your sons’ first day in our holding campus, the school has worked with the relevant authorities to review the adequacy of road safety measures in and around the school. Hence, we appreciate that you and your son take time to understand the safety measures that we are implementing. Your son's safety is of utmost importance to us. If your son is travelling to and from school by public transport, please remind him to use the pedestrian crossing located at the junction of Bishan St 13 & 14. For the first 3 days of school, teachers and student leaders will be at hand to give directions from Bishan MRT Exit D to the school. 

              For those of you who will be driving your son to school, please exercise great care and caution when you drive into the school to drop off and/or pick up your child /ward. Heavy traffic is expected in and around the school in the early morning and afternoon as there are several schools located in the vicinity. For your son’s safety, please do not drop off your son along the main roads. (i.e. Bishan St 13 & 14).

              Have a very Blessed 2014 ahead
