Term 1 Week 3 : Sun 17 Jan (Epiphany Term) - Year 1 Orientation...With heartfelt thanks

Dear Parents,

With heartfelt gratitude, thank you for helping us make that unique SJI experience so real and alive for your son. With the end of the Year 1 Orientation Camp, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your patience and understanding this past week. Time flies, it was just about 3 weeks ago on 23 Dec that your son 'reported' to SJI and today he's a JOSEPHIAN (in the making). Orientation Camp has ended and it is time we work together to help the newly minted Year 1 Josephians adjust, cope and thrive with life in secondary school.
