18 Aug 2019 (Sun) - Term 3 Week 8 

Dear Year 2s and parents,


We may not immediately feel the effects of Climate Change, but as PM Lee had pointed out at the <National Day Message> on Economic Uncertainties, Strategic Risks & Existential Threats (which he will elaborate further in the <National Day Rally>), it would be worthwhile to remember that we are capable of overcoming obstacles, and work towards the future with resolution, unity, boldness. If you had missed the videos featuring lesser known heroes, here are some links:  <#WeWillGetThere>, <In Return> & <FabricOfLifeStory> (inspired & adapted from Straits Times, 8 Aug).

Hopefully, you feel inspired to work hard for the upcoming Assessments and Examinations...

Have  good week ahead!

    Please do take time to look through these <slides>. May we suggest that you take the opportunity to help your child stay vigilant by practising the following dengue preventive measures: a) Practise the “5-step Mozzie Wipeout” with your child at home to reduce dengue transmission, so that we can keep everyone safe in the community. b) If your child is showing symptoms suggestive of dengue, he/she should see the GP early to be diagnosed. Refer to the MOH <website> for dengue symptoms. Your family may also wish to use mosquito repellents especially if your home is in a dengue cluster, to minimize mosquito bites and the possibility of dengue transmission.  If you wish to have the latest updates on dengue clusters, please visit <NEA site> or use the myENV app.

          21 July 2019 (Sun) - Term 3 Week 4 

          Dear Year 2s and parents,


          As we come into the middle of Term 3, pace picks up. And it is also time to reflect, what is our end in mind? So that we may do first things first? And prepare, by being proactive. Even as we pick up pace to obtain the good results so that we may have better choices when it comes to the subjects that we may be able to offer at Secondary 3, as we draw closer to Racial Harmony Day, and visit Siong Lim Temple and Chapel, do take the time to ponder... Ponder over what makes Friar Mike choose to become a Franciscan Friar and not remain the Literature Teacher he was? What is it that moved Rev Zi Zhao to leave behind a career to become a Buddhist nun? No definitely not everyone of us are called to be Friars or Monks, but surely, besides getting good grades, we want to be someone? Someone who makes a positive difference in the lives of others around us? Good to reflect, as we push into higher gears to do well academically ...

          Working together to prevent Dengue
          Please do take time to look through these <slides>. What you can do too We would like to encourage you to take the opportunity to help your child stay vigilant by practising the following dengue preventive measures: a) Practise the “5-step Mozzie Wipeout” with your child at home to reduce dengue transmission, so that we can keep everyone safe in the community. b) If your child is showing symptoms suggestive of dengue, he/she should see the GPs early to be diagnosed. Refer to the MOH website for dengue symptoms https://www.moh.gov.sg/diseases-updates/dengue. Your family may also wish to use mosquito repellents especially if your home is in a dengue cluster, to minimize mosquito bites and the possibility of dengue transmission.  If you wish to have the latest updates on dengue clusters, please visit https://www.nea.gov.sg/dengue-zika/dengue/dengue-clusters or use the myENV app.

              Dear Parents and Year 2s,


              Today we celebrate the joy of being youths, the energy to do youthful things and the hope-filled possibilities youth believe in. Thank you, Lord, for the gift of our youth - you, our Josephians!

              Four Year 5 Josephians — Gabriel Tan, Chris Tiong, Nah Yee Chern and Benedict Fong, and the ever-youthful Mr Alfred Nathan — remind us to celebrate Youth Day 2019 well and happily as they undertake their Ubin 300 Expedition. Simply fantastic, gentlemen! (Taken from Fr Adrian's email)
