25 Oct (Sun) 2020 - Term 4 Week 7 (All Saints Term)

Dear Parents and Students,

I hope we had time to re-read the links I attached for reflection last week. Thanksgiving Assembly last Friday is special as it called everyone at SJI (including parents) to celebrate our blessings for the year that had past.

Examinations, whether we became sad or glad upon receiving our results, do savour the emotions, but remember, like all experiences, examination results are doors that open us up to new opportunities of growth. To help us during this Hols to revise, subject tutors have put together this document <Comments from Subject Tutors>. Here is link to <Booklist Y2 2021>.

There are still 4 classes who will be going for their Canoeing Contact Time on Monday and Tuesday, do pray for good weather so they are able have a good adventure time at Changi.

For parents, you might like to connect, share, celebrate together with MOE's parenting focused Instagram Account, and MOE Instagram account.

Wishing all a good break ahead.

18 Oct (Sun) 2020 - Term 4 Week 6 (All Saints Term)

Dear Parents and Students,

It is coming close to the end of our time spent together at SJI in 2020. It would be good to take time to re-read Fr Adrian’s opening address on <17 Jan 2020>, as well as< 13 Feb 2020> when we welcomed the Year 5s.
Have we taken time at SJI for granted?
Have we been grateful for opportunities available to us and made full use of the time and talents gifted to us?
How have we shared of ourselves?

Then, take time this week to be grateful, to our parents who are always with us, to the people at SJI who journeyed with us and helped us to be a better version of ourselves. Let us us treasure this week, being grateful to the special occasions that make us smile when we recall, remembering the difficult times that helped us dig deep to find the strength we did not know we had, and making sure we show appreciation to as many people as we can.

As we received our grades, if is good to watch : Carol Dweck's <Believing in the power that you can improve>, and Time Urban's <Inside the mind of Master Procrastinator> (to be watched again next year, as our monkey is nimble-witted)

Wishing all a good week ahead.

27 Sep (Sun) 2020 - Term 4 Week 3 (All Saints Term)

Dear Parents and Students,

The next two week will be relatively short yet stressful days. The school's motto: Ora et Labora (pray and work) would be a good mantra, especially if carried out together with rest & exercise. Reference to Counsellor's email about Growth Mindset could help us cope with stress, it also has tips for connecting in these demanding times.

Wishing everyone a good week ahead.

20 Sep (Sun) 2020 - Term 4 Week 2 (All Saints Term)

Dear Parents and Students,

One week before exams, it is very timely to take note of the email sent by the SJI Counsellor (compiled for you <here>). This issue contains links to Growth Mindset and the power of "Yet", Connecting with your child, Harnessing growth mindset this Examination Season. Definitely worth our time reading.

19 Sep - 30 Oct, Mental Health Awareness Singapore FB< Page> outlines a series of talks, workshops & activities. Good to remain healthy is this domain too.

Just to let you know, Temasek Masks collection (ST, StayPrepared.sg) is very convenient for students at SJI. There is a vending machine just outside the gate of Tanglin Community Club (facing SJI), there is no rush for collection.

Finally, even as we prepare ourselves for our exams, we would like to introduce this article: How Singaporeans can care for the welfare of… from <TodayOnline>, for us to also remember to try to be persons for others.

Wishing everyone a good week ahead.

Dear Parents and Students,

We have come to All Saints Term, a term that is short yet intense. An opportunity to find our resilience, to find calmness in the face of so many things to be done. Prioritising the urgent and important, over urgent and not important, can be difficult as everything will now seem to be both urgent and important. These experiences will help us grow wiser.

Wishing everyone a good term ahead.

6 Sep (Sun) 2020 - End of Term 3 Break

Dear Parents and Students,

Thank you very much for the well wishes and words of encouragement this past week. Parents have been the main people who started the education process too, and we thank you for building your children’s foundation. Boys, do take time to be grateful, to recollect how much you have grown in this Term 3 and the special people who have journeyed with you.

As you would have seen the <Term 3 results>, this September Holidays would be a good time to read up and take down revision notes. Even though the SJI Challenge is over, please go for a 2.4km jog or walk daily, as a form of relaxation, exercise and rejuvenation (helps in your revision!). The following <page> may be helpful as it contains the promotion criteria. To the boys doing ISM, please note your presentation deadline.

Repeated here are some <links> from MOE (not specifically exams, yet useful), <guide> from Health Promotion Board providing tips on mental well-being, and Unicef for every child is a <good read> too.

Wishing everyone a restful, fruitful week ahead.

30 Aug (Sun) 2020 - Term 3 Week 13 (Last Week of Assumption Term)

Dear Parents and Students,

Even as our children are doing their best to prepare for something that is quite inevitable in Singapore - exams, we could try to spend time reading up on how to support them. Here are some links from MOE (not specifically exams, yet useful). Health Promotion Board has a guide providing tips on mental well-being. Unicef for every child is a good read too.

Boys, I do hope you are taking time to appreciate your teachers this week, first of all your teachers at home (grandparents, parents, siblings, relatives), then everyone in school whether Primary or Secondary (staff and schoolmates, not just teachers - for when we take time to reflect, every encounter becomes an occasion to help us be a better version of ourselves).

Wishing everyone a good week 13 of Assumption Term.
