Sun 25 Oct 2020 [School holiday begins.......]

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

Thanksgiving Assembly on Friday, 23 October, symbolically closes the school year. The theme for Thanksgiving 2020 : Moments of Gratitude is special as we call the school community to celebrate the blessings of the past year.

With a heavy heart, I would like to thank each one of you for this wonderful journey. It's been an honour and privilege to be part of your son's growth these two years. I do hope that you had as much fun as I had working with and learning with you. It has indeed been my blessing to have worked with you all for you have taught me much and I have (hopefully) become a better parent myself. Thank you too for your many wonderful words of encouragement and affirmation. They have been a constant source of inspiration especially when the times were difficult. As I continue to journey on this vocation that I have been called to, I pray that always for God's guidance and abundant blessings on all of you.

Do also note that this website will be migrated to the new URL at

Sun 18 Oct 2020 Term 4 Week 6 [All Saints Term]

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

The GCE O Level examination will commence from tomorrow, 19 October. As such, kindly note that the dismissal time for the school has been adjusted from Mon 19 Oct to Fri 23 Oct as reflected in the Year 2 timetable. Please keep the Year 4s and Year 6s (IB examinations commence on 27 October) who are taking their examinations in your prayers.

With the school year coming to a close, kindly take note of the following matters.

As you mull over the subject combinations with your son over the next two weeks, it is crucial that we remember what's most important in this exercise. It is not only about a student’s academic scores but how we can capitalize on the their academic strengths (and/or weaknesses) to give them at a more strategic advantage to do well so that they will have the most options for their post-SJI education. The thoughts from some of the Year 2 boys on this might shed some light on the perspective of a typical 14 year-old.

"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 Economics are pretty interlinked ... ..."

"Academically I know that I am not strong. Taking 8 subjects is a concern as I do not know if I am able to cope. The option of taking 7 subjects is very appealing as it affords me time on my weaker subjects. It also allows me to do what I enjoy and am doing well in - my CCA. Doing well at the Nationals is something that I can and want to do, and winning a medal would be a bonus. At the end of the day, I am aware that my academics is important and so I will need to balance the limited time I have between my studies and CCA. Doing one science or humanities is nothing I should be 'ashamed of'. What's more important is that I do well in what I have chosen that will allow be the most options after I complete my O Levels ... ...

The boys have matured over the course of these 2 years. Even though it may not seem like it, the boys are actually thinking about what is going on in their lives right now. They may not articulate their thoughts with you but please do have a good chat with your son, listen to him and share your concerns with him patiently.

Signing out for now.........

Sun 30 Aug 2020 Term 3 Week 13 [Assumption Term]

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

In celebrating Teachers' Day this week, we are thankful for the gift of teachers. We invite you to say a silent prayer for the 'men and women' who have left an impression in our lives. We also remember that parents are in fact our children's first and most important teachers. Their first grunts, steps, words, etc. These numerous firsts were taught by you, his first teacher. There are many more things that his 'little mind' will learn and 'retrieve' from you. As we celebrate this day, we are thankful too for this blessing - our vocation (calling) to teach and inspire.

In celebration of our work in school as teachers, SJI will celebrate Teachers' Day on Thursday 3 September.

Sun 2 Aug 2020 Term 3 Week 9 [Assumption Term]

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

A belated Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha to our Muslim parents and Josephians. Also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, it honours the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismael as an act of obedience to God's command, We wish for all Josephians, as a Community Builder, to seek to understand and appreciate one’s own culture and personal histories while being open to perspectives, values and traditions of other individuals and communities.

To start the week, I'd like to challenge Josephians to ponder about what it means to be “Together, a Stronger Singapore”. What is the significance of this day, to me, personally? What can I do, to play my part, now?

Wishing everyone a good week ahead.

Sun 12 Jul 2020 Term 3 Week 7 [Assumption Term]

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

As we approach the mid-term break, your son would have received his results for TA2. With the need to be self-directed during HBL, the teachers observed that many managed it relatively well. However, there are a handful who will be identified for e-PTM by the subject teachers. 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.

Kindly continue to take note of the following matters for the coming week. Please read this list of quick reminders to make sure you come ready for school and the staggered dismissal times for the next week.

Sun 14 June 2020 Term 3 Week 3 [Assumption Term]

Dear Year 2 Josephians and Parents,

Welcome back to Week 3 of the Assumption term and week of the Year 2 Common tests. We hope Week 2 HBL gave you time to work on revision for the common tests.

The teachers are looking forward to seeing you with your hair, attire and shoes sorted out if there were issues during the HUBS check the week before.

Year 2 Updates

1. 2020 Year 2 Term 3 Common Test Schedule


2. Safety in SJI

    • Use of face shields:

With effect from 2 June, face shields will be treated differently from face masks, and will be allowed for only specific exempt groups or settings. This is because the face mask completely covers the nose and mouth and reduces the chance of spread of COVID-19 through droplets. We would like to emphasise that wearing face masks would be the default mode for all staff and students (including on public transport and school buses). We would like to remind all boys to wear your masks at all times, except for PE or when you are having your meal (during which, you should not be talking, please)

    • Maintaining safe distancing:

Continue to maintain safe distancing during meal times and when communicating with each other. SafeEntry: Some suggestions to ease checking into SafeEntry. Students to save the link safeentry.sji.edu.sg in their phones since they will need to use the link everyday.

    • Wipe Down in classrooms

Please continue to bring your own rags for wipe down in classrooms.

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

Greetings, and "Selamat Ramadan Kareem" to our Muslim friends, who are into the 3rd day of the holy month of Ramadan, a month of challenges, and the culmination of patience, perseverance and hope (extracted from MUIS).

This week also marks the last stretch of HBL. A good time for us to take stock of what we have done or not done so far. Let's take this final week to make sure that we reflect on the efforts to keep pace with : (i) attending our lessons punctually, (ii) the learning and follow-up and (iii) the submission of assignments in a timely manner.

A gentle reminder that Mon 4 May will also be the day we celebrate Founder’s Day, This year, we will do it differently, due to Circuit Breaker measures. A good time to read up a bit more about St John Baptist de Lasalle. You might also like to follow the Footsteps of the Founder (especially during the May Holidays).

Have a good week ahead.

Sun 19 April 2020 Term 2 Week 5 [Easter Term]

Dear Year 2 Josephians,

Week 5 marks the third week of HBL. By now, you would have established a routine with HBL and I hope you are settling into the different pace and style of learning. It is important for you to develop a set of strong habits and adhere to them. For example, make it a habit to wake up at the same time daily, make your bed, do your daily grooming, before logging in by 0745hrs for Contact Time with your FTs. Another wonderful habit to develop is to always check your lesson plans the night before so that you can prepare all necessary materials for the lesson the next day. These habits and routines may seem trivial; but if you can find the discipline to do them every single day, you will be able to have the discipline and the ability to face even bigger challenges in future.

I hope that everyone is keeping well at home.Remember to stay in touch with your classmates and friends through online platforms and do remember to spend quality time with your family and loved ones. Find the time to read a good book, to listen to some good music, and to do some simple exercises. Remember, how you choose to spend the time you have at home is entirely up to you. If you choose to make it meaningful, it will be meaningful.

Please refer to the Year 2 HBL Timetable and HBL Plans daily for clarity on your lessons.

Year 2 HBL Timetable

Year 2 HBL Plans

Once again, this is also a reminder that for the duration of the HBL period, you must check your school email daily and regularly.

REMINDERS

1. You are to take your HBL seriously and be actively engaged in your learning.

2. You are to log into Google Meet by 0745 h for contact time with your Form Tutors. During the contact time, you will:

    • Conduct temperature-taking and attendance-taking.

    • Conduct Class Prayer. (Class Prayer Leader to lead, class to follow)

    • Conduct National Pledge. (Class Chairman to lead, class to follow)

3. If you are sick and are not able to do the HBL, you must email your Form tutors and your subject teachers accordingly. Subsequently, you should see a doctor and obtain an MC.

4. Expected behaviour for the duration of the HBL period:

    • You should be at home and be punctual for your lessons.

    • Keep your camera on your device on at all times during the lesson.

    • Should the lesson be in google-meet mode, mute the microphone unless instructed otherwise by the teacher.

    • Be appropriately attired. You should be in the Casual Friday Polo-Shirt or the school PE/Fraternity T-Shirt.

    • Politely ask your family for privacy (as best as they can).

    • Participate in your online lesson with your teachers. DO NOT engage in other activities, online or otherwise.

    • Un-mute the microphone when the teacher engages you to speak/answer. Then take turns to speak when called by your teacher.

    • If you are using Google Meet, you may want to type your questions on the chat group so that the lesson proceeds smoothly.

    • Complete your assignments and tasks according to the allocated time.

    • Sit upright and locate yourself at an appropriate place at your home (not on the bed)

    • Be respectful and maintain discipline at all times. Focus on the lesson and don’t be distracted by other personal activities.

    • Express gratitude to your teacher at the end of the lesson.

    • Observe proper decorum and social media etiquette e.g. do not screenshot the videos of tutors teaching and edit it inappropriately and post it on any social media platforms.

Please know that if you ever need additional support, your teachers and I are but an email away.

Dear Year 2 Josephians,

The following are important emails that have been sent out this week. Please ensure that you have read them carefully.


Taken from E-mail from Mr Alan Chan (17 Apr, 1820h)

Dear Students,

1. To help ensure a safe learning environment and safe-guard against intrusions, we will be performing a central password reset on all students' G-Suite accounts at 7.00pm today.

2. Students will be prompted to set a new strong/complex password (12 characters or more using a combination of letters and numbers). You are not to share the new password with others.

Please refer to the infographic below on how to reset your G-Suite password.


3. Please be informed that you must use your SJI G-Suite account to access your teacher's Google Meet sessions. Your teachers have been advised not to admit any student who is using another email account to request for access.

4. Please complete the G-Suite account password reset by 7.30am, Monday, 20 Apr '20. P.S. To Form Teachers, kindly follow up with your students on Monday morning check-in time (7.45am - 8.00am) to check that students in your class have reset their G-Suite password.

For your immediate actions, pls.

P.S. Your Form Teachers will follow up with you on Monday morning check-in time (7.45am - 8.00am) to check that you have reset your G-Suite password.

Best regards,

Ora et Labora

Taken from e-mail from SJI Update (14 Apr, 1031h)

Dear Parents/Guardians,

MOE had earlier suspended the use of all video conferencing (VC) platforms following the recent security breaches on the VC platform Zoom, until the security issues are ironed out.

MOE will now centrally manage teachers' Zoom accounts. This enables MOE to enforce standardised security settings consistently across all teachers using the platform. These default settings will enhance security and restrict the use of zoom's functionalities, while allowing Live Lessons to still take place. For example, the use of passwords will now be mandatory for all lessons, while screen sharing, screen annotation and whiteboarding will be disabled and locked centrally.

In addition, teachers are now required to comply with protocols and practices to ensure the safe use of VC platforms such as verifying the identity of individual students before admitting them into the lesson. Teachers must confirm their compliance with these measures before they are allowed to resume using them for teaching.

We will allow for progressive resumption of VC platforms as these are good tools for motivating students to learn. As long as individual teachers have put these additional measures in place and familiarised themselves with the security protocols as required, they can resume the use of VC platforms for HBL.

These multiple levels of security are intended to ensure a safe teaching and learning environment for our students and teachers.

For more information, you may refer to the MOE FAQs on https://go.gov.sg/moe-covid19

If you have any concerns on the use of VC for your child's HBL, you may write to us at contact@sji.edu.sg.

Stay home and stay safe!

Sun 12 April 2020 Term 2 Week 4 [Easter Term]

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

Easter greetings and blessings to all.

Christians associate light with Easter. Light because Jesus risen from the dead overcomes the darkness in our lives. We fear when we are in the dark. Easter light helps us overcome our fears. Easter light also allows us to see all that is good that the risen Jesus reveals to us of God's love in our lives (Fr Adrian Danker). This light can move us to be grateful that we are carrying on with the learning despite the situation that we are in.

Let the Easter this year bring each of us light to overcome all our fears and joy to live the best that we can. May we especially find this light and this joy of Easter through our care, concern and companionship for each other at home through the SKBI (Small Kindness Big Impact) project and in the virtual classroom.

Year 2 Matters

1. BigLove Parenting Tips

2. HBL Instructions (Enhanced) (Repeat)

3. Important Emails pertaining to HBL

(a) Mr Ng Yew Hong's email on Tue 7 Apr

Gentlemen,

I had originally planned to write an email to you last Friday to praise you for performing well during the HBL last Thursday. Your teachers had nothing but praise for your good behaviour, maturity, and enthusiasm. But came PM Lee's speech on Friday and we are now in the process of making history.

It is important that we do what we can so that this "circuit breaker" will work. At the same time, you need to continue your learning. I hope you will form good habits - wake up early, prepare for lessons, and not get distracted during school hours.

Your timetable has been modified so that you will end earlier. This is to ensure that you do not get overloaded, and it will also prevent you from excessive screen time. There are two documents you need to refer to, the HBL Timetable as well as the HBL Plans, both attached below. You need to note that:

  1. Each period in the timetable has been labelled A, B, C, D, or E.

  2. You need to refer to the HBL Plans to check what instructions your teachers have given to you for each period each day. Please do this early in the morning every day because your teacher may adjust the plan.

  3. You should also check your email every morning.

  4. ADM will continue for those doing an ADM in Semester 1, and there are only two weeks left, so it is not included in the timetable. ADM will be on Thursday 1pm-2pm (Week 3 and Week 5). You are expected to check what you need to do in the HBL Plans as well, under ADM.

Other than formal lessons, this is a good time to learn something new. You can pick up skills like cooking and coding during your free time. Please stay safe and healthy and I look forward to meeting all of you in person in one month's time.

Year 2 HBL Plans


(b) SJI's email on Tue 7 Apr

Dear parents,

Starting from 8 Apr 2020, we will shift to Full Home-Based Learning (HBL) till 4 May 2020. It is an important stage in our fight against COVID-19 where we need to stay home, stay safe, and help our children stay curious.

Last week’s HBL has helped all of us to be better prepared. There will be issues and challenges as we move to Full HBL, but let’s work together to overcome them.

HBL cannot fully replace physical learning in school, but it will ensure that our children will be able to progress with learning while remaining safe.

We have come through challenges before, we can do it again. Let us partner to guide our children to tide through this and emerge stronger.

This issue of Parent Kit (see PDF) aims to help you understand what HBL is and how you can support your children during the period of Full HBL. Watch this video: bit.ly/pk2fullhbl

We hope you find the issue useful, especially for those of you who are also working from home.

Stay home, stay safe, stay curious!

Take time to have some exercise after each HBL day!

Head of Level 2, 2020

Sun 5 April 2020 Term 2 Week 3 [Easter Term]

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

With the announcement from PM Lee on Fri 3 Apr 2020, we ask that you encourage your sons to engage and participate fully in the HBL lessons that the teachers have worked very hard to prepare during this time. This is to ensure that they can continue learning during these challenging times. Josephians, take these experiences as opportunities for you to "develop the necessary competencies and skills you will need for tomorrow's workplaces, as well as for you to develop yourself as a self-directed learner." (Fr Adrian Danker)

Details of HBL Timetable will be released on Mon 6 Apr or Tue 7 Apr.


Excerpts from Mr Lee Han Seng's email on Wed 1 Apr

Dear students,

The following will detail how HBL will be carried out.

Conduct of HBL

Order of the day:

HBL Lesson

The HBL lessons will be a combination of online learning from the curation of videos, use of relevant platforms, video-conferencing tools etc. There will be both on-screen and off-screen time activities.

Instructions for students

Fulfilling “Learning how to learn”

This is a new way of learning and we must adapt to the new landscape. Both you and your teachers are learning how to learn and teach.

Sun 29 Mar 2020 Term 2 Week 2 [Easter Term]

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

We have started Term 2 settling much more than we expected because of COVID-19. However, please be assured that we will continue to do the needful for the students. We ask for your cooperation, particularly to monitor your child’s movements after school-hours (based on your child’s timetable). We also ask that you encourage them to practise good personal hygiene and safe distancing. We hope that you will be on board to reiterate some of these points that we have been communicating and will be communicating below.

Year 2 Matters

1. Term 1 Results were made available on Wed 25 Mar 2020 from 1500h. Please acknowledge after receiving the results.

2. Good Practices

    • Daily routine for students

      • Wipe down their table and chair upon reaching the classroom

      • Use the disinfectant spray provided or bring own wipes, disinfectant and hand sanitizer. Keep clean and be considerate of others around you

      • Take your temperature twice; at 0730h and 1230h

      • Bring your books/notes home and avoid keeping them underneath the table

      • Do not leave any used tissue paper on your table; throw them into the bin after use

      • If you are attending lessons at other locations, please perform the wipe-down exercise.

3. Recess Time from Week 2 onwards

      • In line with our efforts to better manage the crowd in the canteen, Year 2 Josephians are encouraged to bring food from home if possible. They will be able to consume their food in class at their designated tables.

      • If there is a need to buy food from the canteen, they are to bring their own receptacles to contain the food bought. They may return to the classroom to consume the food but washing of the receptacle should be done when they return home. Ownership must be taken to clean up after themselves and items to be thrown must be thrown in the large bins on the ground floor.

4. Council Voting (from The 9th Student Council)

Election time is just around the corner. It is time for you guys to vote and have your say in the 10th SJI Secondary Student Council election. The Student Council embodies a group of student leaders who share a common desire to better the Josephian experience for each and every one of you. To do so, they have planned events such as the Year 4 Graduation and the recent activity where the school came together to write cards for health care workers, to name a few. They have taken painstakingly spent their holidays putting together their respective campaign videos for you guys to watch and get to know them better. Your vote plays a key role in ensuring your fellow Josephians proceed further in the election process.

The link for their campaign videos can be accessed <here>. <Link> to voting form.

The closing date for votes to be submitted is 3 April and you can choose up to a maximum of 8 candidates. We sincerely hope that all of you put thought as to where your valuable votes go. Use it wisely and have fun watching their videos!

In this second round of voting, you will vote for your Fraternity Captain. You are only allowed one vote so please put some thought into it. Voting will end on 3 April 2020.

After you have voted, all the candidates will go through an interview conducted by the Fraternity teachers before the final decision is made. The nomination and selection of Fraternity Exco will then commence.

Sun 22 Mar 2020 Term 2 Week 1 [Easter Term]

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

Time flies and I hope you managed to have a good and restful break with the family. With the current situation at the start of a new school term, it'll be most helpful if you could continue to remind your sons to be mindful of hygiene and being socially responsible. Please also gently remind and check that your son has completed his assigned holiday homework, if any. A quick check on his personal grooming (e.g. haircut, nails, etc) will also be most appreciated.

Year 2 Matters

1. Reminders from Mr Syaifudin

(a) Please ensure that your uniform, hair, shoes and socks are acceptable for school (refer to the attached document and also your School Diary pg. 73-74). Your Form Tutors will do a check daily/weekly and will remind you to get them fixed if there are any issues. Ensure you get your hair cut and fixed over the weekends. For those with facial hair, you are required to shave them. Only those who had provided us with official letters (due to religious reasons) are exempted. Socks must also be plain and above your ankles, without any prints and motifs. Disciplinary actions will be taken if you fail to comply with the requirements.

Uniforms are to be worn on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. The tie should be worn every first school day of the week from morning until 9.30 am. Casual Friday Polo Shirts can be worn on Wednesdays and Fridays only. Fraternity shirts can only be worn during the first PE lesson of the week. All students are to change out of their PE/Fraternity shirts and shorts after PE before going for your next lesson/recess. Please practice good hygiene and adhere to this.

(b) Every student must have a working thermometer. In view of the current situation, every student must take their temperatures twice daily. The new stock of thermometers will cost $7.90 each if you wish to purchase them from Student Services Office or the bookshop. Students who forget to bring their thermometers will be informed that disciplinary actions will be taken if they forget to bring them again the next time. If you are feeling unwell, please consult a doctor and stay home to rest.

(c) Do continue to be punctual for school and lessons. For those who have been late for school on 3 or more occasions, please ensure that you make the effort and necessary arrangements to ensure that you reach school on time. For the rest, keep up the good habit of being punctual and remember to factor in buffer time (at least 15 minutes) to take into consideration traffic conditions and also the need to use the bathroom every morning. You should aim to be in your classrooms by 7.25 am rather than arriving at the main gate at 7.30 am. "Arriving late is a way of saying that your own time is more valuable than the time of the person who waited for you."

(d) A gentle reminder for all of you to be responsible for your own items at all times. We have had incidents of personal belongings going missing because students have left them at the canteen unattended or left them on their classroom tables for a prolonged period of time. Please utilize the lockers provided so that you do not lose your personal belongings. Handphones should not be used between 7.30 am until dismissal time. Earphones, headphones and airpods should be removed upon entering the school compound. If you fail to heed the above, your handphones, earphones, headphones or airpods will be confiscated.

(e) Do keep recreational play at the designated areas at the track and on the field only. No games should be played at any area of the academic blocks, including the Oval. For the basketball court at the PAC, you are only allowed to use them from 2.30 pm onwards. For those who use the small goalposts during recess, please return them to the side of the field after use. We suggest you end your play 5-10 minutes before recess ends to keep the goalposts and cool down before you resume your next lesson. For those who remain in your classrooms during recess to complete or catch up on school work, please ensure you behave in an orderly manner. We have had accidents (injuries/broken windows) in Term 1 due to students fooling around in the classrooms/classroom corridors.

(f) Lastly, please continue to exercise good personal hygiene and keep our school premises clean and litter-free. There are ample visible rubbish bins for all of you to dispose of your rubbish. Do clear your plates and cups after you are done with your meals.

Classes will be assigned tables during recess/breaks and you are to wipe-down the tables after use. After the last lesson of the day, all classes are also to wipe-down your respective classrooms (materials will be provided). This additional measures allow us to ensure the spaces that we use are clean and hygienic.

Let us all play a part in ensuring our school environment is clean, safe and positive as we begin the new term, especially during these challenging times. We look forward to seeing all of you again on Monday.

2. Term 2 Time Table <link>

3. Suspension of DSA Care (from Mr Sirhan)

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, DSA Care will be suspended till further notice. Please do the needful (i.e. go home after school and social distancing) during this period. You will be notified when DSA care resumes.

4. Suspension of Third Language Classes at MOELC until further notice.

5. Renewal of Library Books (from Mrs Boey)

Please note that you have the option to renew your library books yourself online once. However, this needs to be done before the book is overdue. If your book is already overdue, you will need to email Mrs Boey <library@sji.edu.sg> to ask for help with extending your loan.

Please see my instructions on setting up your Spydus account and renewing your library books from home. Click on this link to begin: Spydus password and renewing books

Don't forget you can also access NLB e-books and free online books if you need more reading material. Information on that was shared on my Online Book Week slides.

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

COVID-19 challenged SJI to adjust our plans for the 2020 Inaugural celebrations so that the well-being of everyone in SJI was taken care of. Without compromising the essential traditions of SJI, the Inaugural celebrations on Friday continued in a scaled down manner.

The Inauguration of the school year is a cherished SJI tradition. It marks the start of each year when we assemble to learn about the school’s directions and acknowledge students and teachers who will help us realise them.

The Inaugural celebrations called each of us to reflect on the possible contributions we can make to build SJI. In keeping with the theme for 2020, “Sharing the SJI Significance”, the Year 2 classes made their pledges to share with the bigger community their actions for the environment – our bigger home; our common home. This year’s school carnival, Lent project and many other values in action projects will centre on Josephians’ actions to care and save our environment.

Sun 2 Feb 2020 Term 1 Week 5 [Epiphany Term]

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

Time has flown by so quickly. We celebrated CNY in the company of family and friends and now we are about to enter mid term.

As we enter Term 1 week 5, it is good to check with your son on his life in school. I will in the coming weeks continue to remind them for the need 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 begun their season. Your words of concern and encouragement will go a long way in sustaining you son's interest and passion.

And in the midst of the novel coronavirus outbreak, we continue the vigilance of keeping ourselves safe.

Sun 12 Jan 2020 Term 1 Week 2 [Epiphany Term]

Dear Parents and Year 2 Josephians,

In my brief address to the Year 2 Josephians on Friday, I spoke about starting the year right by first and foremost being present and punctual in all that we embark upon this new year. By doing so, we need to plan ahead and take initiative. I also spoke of respect; first respecting one's self in the way one speaks, how one presents himself (attire) and how one needs to be aware of what goes on around him. All of these point to the traits of being Principled, Reflective, Self-directed, an Effective communicator and a Community Builder.

As we approach the second week and beyond of 2020, it is important to remind ourselves that we (the adults) should 'let go' and allow the boys to grow up and be responsible for their own learning, It will become evident that some of the boys will struggle with their identity and emotions and there's a need for us to give them the space but also gently remind them that we are there if they ever need help. It will do the boys good if they are allowed to 'take ownership of their life' and also make mistakes just like when a child falls as he learns how to walk.

7. Triple P Message to Parents Regarding the Invitation Package and SDQ Form

Dear Parents/Guardians,

You would have come across a package that your child has brought back to you regarding Triple P.

The Positive Parenting Programme (Triple P) is an evidence-based parenting program proven to work in raising successful and confident children. It has its origins in the University of Queensland, and is purportedly one of the best programmes out there in helping parents level up in their parenting. It has been studied, refined, and proven to have improved parenting competencies and decrease parenting stress. All parents will stand to benefit from the programme, even if there are no perceived issues with the child at the moment. You can know more about the programme at https://www.triplep-parenting.net/global/triple-p/

The Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) brought in Triple P to support families in Singapore in their endeavours to raise well-adjusted children. This programme has been made available to all families of children studying in local public primary and secondary schools, regardless of nationality. While it would be costly to attend this programme outside, the Ministry has made it free of charge to you through the school.

The programme comprises various levels (mass talks, individual sessions, group sessions) catering to different level of parenting needs of participants. To ensure parents get catered to only what is needed and not spending more time in the programme beyond what is necessary, parents are given a questionnaire (Strengths Difficulties Questionnaire – SDQ) to fill in, after which the responses would help determine which level of the programme they qualify for.

Once filled in and submitted, a third-party vendor appointed by MSF would collect and score the questionnaires. Only the Social Service Agency attached to our school – TOUCH Community Services - and the school itself would be privy to the eventual scored results and the qualification level. Upon receipt of the results, TOUCH would then be contacting parents of the school to let them know of the level that they have qualified for, and how they can proceed from there.

It is important to know that the results of the questionnaire would solely be used to determine the qualification of the Triple P level. The results would be in no way a reflection of how well the parent is in his or her parenting, and definitely bears no implication beyond determining the Triple P level qualification.

We hope that this has provided clarity as to why you are requested to fill in the questionnaire and have it returned to us in the sealed envelope. We encourage you to leverage on this funded programme in building up confident and well-adjusted children. Do fill in the questionnaire as husbands and wives as much as possible, so that the observations of your child are based on both perspectives. Otherwise, it would be beneficial for the primary caregiver to be giving the observations and subsequently attending the programme.

If you wish to understand more about the benefit and considerations of the Triple P programme before submitting your response, do drop our partner agency TOUCH Community Services an email at parenting@touch.org.sg – they will be happy to connect with you.

Warmest Regards,

Jasmine Lee | Family Life Educator | Programme Executive
