23 Oct (Thu) - Term 4 Weeks 6 [Sec 3 Subject Combination & Other Matters ... ...]
_____________________________________________________________________________
 
Dear Parents,

As you mull over the subject combinations with your son over the last week, the thoughts from some of the Sec 2 boys on this might shed some light on the perspective of a typical 14 year-old.<Adapted from E-mail to MN 203 Parents by Ms Melissa Yam> 

"We need to decide on the 8 subjects we will need to take, keeping in mind the possibilities it might provide us with in future ... I do know that I'm likely not venturing into areas deep in Science but I do appreciate the discovery of learning that Science has given me. Science has taught me how to organize my learning, sharpened my observations, to consider all possible options before concluding, and importantly, if I have made a wrong judgement and failed, to find out what went wrong and to try again ... I will continue pursuing learning 2 Science disciplines so as to learn how to learn. I guess for my generation where things keep changing, we'll have to keep learning so the best thing to do is to learn how to learn!"

"I hope to take both History and Geography though my parents want me to take Triple Science ... I think that viewing a same Science thing using different perspectives of History and Geography can give me a better idea of why the thing is like that ... It's like how we learnt about plants in Science and Geography, it's plants but different ideas about plants. One is about flow of energy, the other about place and space but both are about adaptation ... I know I can manage it (because there are no O levels exams to take right and I just need to pass the school exams???) ..."

"I want to take Triple Science. I'm not going to do Life Science but my Humanities is bad. I have problems elaborating on my points and I don't see the point of having to elaborate when my point is already clear ... I know we do not need all 3 Sciences but I like the knowledge and things are becoming mixed up these days. I'll probably take Geography because after that it might help with Economics (in JC) because of the human aspect and Science and Econs are pretty interlinked ... ..."

It was interesting reading the boys' reflections and hearing their discussions about the various subject combinations. The boys have indeed matured over the course of these 2 years. Silent as they are, the boys actually think about what goes on in their life though many might not articulate their thoughts very well with you. Do continue to have a good chat with your son, listen to him and share your concerns with him patiently. 
 
Have a Blessed Weekend ahead!

_____________________________________________________________________________
 
Dear Parents, 
 
We extend our warmest greetings to all our Hindu friends as they celebrate Deepavali. The 'festival of lights' is one that spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. A timely reminder for us all of the more important things is life ... ... Here's wishing all our Hindu friends a warm and blessed Deepavali, showered with love and happiness, with peace and joy!  

With the school year coming to an end, there are many administrative matters that would require your attention. The school seeks your patience and kind understanding in these matters. As a cohort, the boys have done reasonably well for the examinations and will be briefed this coming week on the subjects and various combinations that will be available in Sec 3, 2015. It is essential that we remember that the choice of subjects not only takes into consideration his academic strengths but more importantly capitalizes on this to give him that strategic advantage to do well and have more options for his post-secondary educationThe teachers and myself have also been sharing with the boys on this the past week. Do spend some time this weekend talking to your son on his preferred options.  
 
On behalf of Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA), I would also like to thank you for your support in the <Small Change Makes A Difference> where the boys saved their coins and loose change last term. A commendable sum of $3145.95 in loose change was collected!!! It's important for us is to remind these 'young men in formation' that is all great things is life start small and they all have the potential to be great - if they choose to. What's important is that they must take that first step by putting in the effort.  
Have a Blessed Weekend ahead!

Dear Parents, 
 
The sun was out so was the haze but nothing could stop these young men from a morning of heat and sweat as the 'fought hard' on the field of brotherly camaraderie. From soccer to touch rugby and frisbee - this common experience is vital is a boy's growing up years. The boys had a fun-filled time enjoying their first exam-free day learning things that are 'more important' in life - resilience and hard work, teamwork and fair play. Isn't this what education is all about ... ...   

In the course of next week, your son will be receiving exam results. Credit must be given to the vast majority of Sec 2s who have put in much effort and have obtained commendable grades. For those who did not perform up to expectation, it's important to remind them and ourselves that grades though important should not be the be all and end all. It is of our duty as adults to affirm all the boys for their effort and help them to learn and move on - to strive and do their best in whatever they do, both in academic and CCA. 

Have a Blessed Weekend ahead!

I do hope you had a fruitful week with your son the past week. With the start of a new school term, kindly note that the End-of-Year examinations are less than 2 weeks away. Parental presence and supervision as you journey with your son during this period of heightened stress would be most appreciated. Your support for these young men at such during these seemingly stressful times would put them in good stead - setting an example for them as their first teachers and role models. 
 
Have a Blessed Week ahead!

8 Sep (Mon) - Term 3 Holidays [Blessed Teachers' Day ... ...]
_____________________________________________________________________________
 

Dear Parents, 
 
First and foremost, thank you for taking time off for the Parent Teacher Meeting last Friday. Your patience and understanding was most appreciated. With the week-long holidays ahead, it would be most beneficial if you could spend some time going though with your son on his school work. Do help him plan and set aside time to revise for the upcoming exams scheduled to begin in late Sep. 
 
Thank you too for the many parents who joined us for the Tea Chat session. I do hope that you had a fruitful time talking to the teachers and getting to know fellow parents. I had a very enjoyable time, especially with the food - many of which were home made. Heartfelt thanks to the many parents who contributed so generously for the Tea Chat session. Your support for what we do in school is second to none. 
 
As we celebrate Teachers' Day, we are thankful for the gift of teachers and remember that you parents are in fact your son's first and most important teacher. His first grunt, step, word, etc. These numerous firsts were taught by you, his first teacher. There are many more things that he'll learn and 'catch' from you. As we celebrate this day, we are thankful too for this blessing - our vocation (calling) to teach and inspire. Here's wishing all of us ... ...
  
Blessed Belated Teachers' Day!

30 Aug (Sat) - Term 3 Week 10 [End of Term Matters ... ...]
_____________________________________________________________________________
 

Dear Parents, 
 
Earlier this week, the Sec 2s were at Singapore Sports Hub to support their friends at the Plate Finals for the Rugby Nationals. The results wasn't in the school's favour but the experience was. What mattered more was the memory which will be with boys for a long time to come - their first visit to Singapore Sports Hub.

As your son shares with you his results for the term, we need to affirm them for their effort but at the same time encourage them to strive to do better. The boys want to do well but many are still trying to balance and cope with the demands and may find what's facing them 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. 

[Discovery Channel] Body Story - Teen Dreams

 
On a separate note, it would be of interest to you that we are, for Lower Secondary Science, finally at the topic of <Sexual Reproduction in Humans> - the highlight of the boys' science journey and a time for them to understand and appreciate the changes happening to them (both physically and emotionally).. It is a topic that is both challenging and often hilarious with the strange and perplexing questions that the boys ask. More importantly, this topic provides numerous teachable moments for the boys to better understand themselves, how they can better manage themselves as they enter puberty - on issues such as self awareness, self control and empathy. Great effort is also made toexplain to the boys what many of their mothers will be going through probably in 5-10 years' time (i.e. menopause), and the need for them to be more empathetic towards their mothers. For the many first time parents to a growing boy (or girl), this following video might be useful in helping you to understand what hormones do to them - it is 45 mins long though. In general, your sons understand what is being taught but at this age, they may still need lots of reminders before these are being caught ... ... So hang in there for several (maybe 5 or so) more years! 

Have a Blessed Weekend ahead!

_____________________________________________________________________________
 

Dear Parents, 
 
As shared earlier this year during the Upper Sec Subject Combination Briefing, kindly note the various dates as you make your well-deserved year-end holidays. Your son will also be getting back his test results in the coming week. It will be most helpful if you could help his rationalize on the fruits of his labour - why he has or hasn't performed up to expectation. But what's more important is for us to work together with him on how to enable and support him so that he can do better in the coming examinations. 

On a separate note, the school's 'C' Div Rugby team has made it to the Plate Finals for the Nationals which will be played on 26 Aug (Tue) at the brand new National Stadium at the Singapore Sports Hub. The organisers have generously given the school 500 tickets to support our team. Taking this opportunity to bring the school together to strengthen the school spirit, the entire Sec 2 cohort will there to support the team. The Sec 2s will be dismissed at 1250 hrs and will be excused from their CCA that day, except for the boys in the Catholic CCAs who have to attend an important pre-arranged session. One way transport will be provided to bring the boys to the National Stadium and dismissal is from the stadium at about 1545 hours. For Notice Form and map, click <here>.

Thank you for your kind understanding in the above matters and Have a Blessed Weekend ahead!

Dear Parents, 

Earlier this week, the boys were reminded of the need to be on task especially with quite a number of class tests scheduled in the coming weeks. It is crucial that we, both at home and in school, work together during this time of heightened stress to support these young men and help them adjust and cope. Please feel free to email your son's class and/or subject tutors if you need any clarifications. 

As Singapore celebrates her 49th National Day, we remember the ordinary people who can do the extraordinary when we come together as one community, one peopleOur People, Our Home. Though diverse, as a family, class and school, we have have shown in many ways that there is tenacity and a lot of heart and soul among us. Every little thing adds up making what we are today - Singapore, a community of individuals who have time and again held their own and created the extraordinary because 
we have been and will always be there for one another.  

Here’s wishing each and everyone a “Happy ‘Birth’-day” ... ... Have a Blessed Holidays ahead!

        _____________________________________________________________________________
         

        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>
