10 June. Bring your EZ Link Card to the Vaccination Centre

Dear students,
I hope that you have managed to find some time to rest since Week 11.
For students who are going for the vaccination,
you are advised to bring along your EZ link Card to the vaccination centre. This will help the centre to identify you going for vaccination. This will make their work lighter during this busy period. That's what a responsible Josephian should do! In the event that you forget to bring the identification card, you may proceed to do the vaccination.

Take care and God bless.

Dean

18 May. Instructions & Protocol for Full Home-Based Learning at SJI (19 May - 4 June)

Dear Y1 & Y2 Josephians,

(Cc Parents & Guardians)

On 19 May 2021, all students will be doing Full Home-Based Learning (FHBL). The shift to FHBL is to ensure that you continue to learn in an environment to minimise the risk and impact of any transmission of COVID-19 in schools. The FHBL will take place from 19 May 2021 till 4 June 2021 (Term 2 Week 9 till Term 2 Week 11) as the school operates a 11-week in Term 2.

In this note, you will find the slides on the Instructions and Protocol for Students during Home-Based Learning. Do take time to carefully read through the details provided.

There will be a second email to be sent out to you by tomorrow, Wednesday 19 May, to provide you with the specific instructions for all your HBL lessons and lesson resources. This will be done in a Google spreadsheet titled <2021 FHBL Instructions and Resources Sheet>. Information in this spreadsheet provided will be by level, by class, by subject and by week.

If you have any further questions, please check with your Subject Tutors or Form Tutors.

Timetable, PTM and Assessment Reporting Matters:

(a) Timetable:

  • Wednesday (19 May) Blended Learning

  • Thursday & Friday (20 - 21 May) : HBL according to current Term 2 timetable

  • 24 May - 4 June : HBL according new HBL timetable

  • 31 May (GCE O levels MTL exam) : no HBL

The new timetable for 24 May - 4 June is to better care for your well-being as well as your learning during the HBL.

(b) PTM:

  • 3 June PTM will proceed as planned, format will be online

  • Your FTs will meet virtually with your parents to discuss your academic progress and overall well-being

  • Your attendance for this PTM is compulsory as the discussion points will be beneficial for your overall progress


The aim of the e-PTM is to provide a platform for your parents, your teachers and you to converse on your overall development in school.

(c) TA2/Mid-Year Exam Assessment Reporting Schedule:

  • Online Reporting (Round 1): 2 June

  • Checking of Y2 Mid-Year Exam scripts: Term 3 Week 1 (28 June - 2 July)

  • Checking of Y1 & Y2 marksheets: 8 July

  • Online Reporting (Round 2): 16 July

There will be two rounds of reporting the results online. This is to provide you an update on your progress of learning. You may use this as a sign post for your learning in the last few months. Some of the classes have the opportunities to go through the assessment with your subject tutors while others may not. The second online reporting serves to confirm the result after your subject tutors have gone through with you when you return to school.

Some general important reminders for your HBL:

  • Your day starts at 0730h daily. Between 0730h - 0745h, your FTs will do attendance taking and check-in with you. You are reminded to be punctual and be cooperative with your FTs. Your FTs will submit the names of any recalcitrant students to the HOLs or Mr Syaifudin for follow-up disciplinary actions.

  • Students who are unwell are advised to see a doctor and inform your FTs accordingly.

  • Attire will be either Casual Friday Polo-shirt or School PE/Fraternity T-shirt.

  • Be neat and tidy in your grooming.

  • Maintain proper discipline and respect towards your tutors at all times.

  • Adhere to social media ethics and etiquette.

  • Sit upright in a conducive corner at home for Face-to-Face screen time, do not lie down or slouch.

I wish you a fruitful learning experience! Please continue to stay healthy and safe physically, emotionally and mentally.

Ora et Labora!
Ang Yuin Hur (Mr)
Director of Academics & Head, Maths (FPAM)

16 May (Sun) 2021 - Term 2 Week 9 (Easter Term)

Dear Parents and Year 2s,

So quickly the situation has evolved. From 8 to 5, and now 2. Steps we take to break the chain of transmission, individually as well as together, and we shall overcome :) Please do look out for one another, even as you place more emphasis to be more careful in cleanliness and keeping your distance to prevent intermingling.

Wishing everyone a good week ahead.
