Our lasallian mission Enabling youth in a Lasallian community to learn how to learn and to learn how to live; empowering them to be men of integrity and men for others.

Our VISION Our school’s vision is to develop each boy to be their BEST: Belief in Self Excellence in All Service to Others True to One’s Faith

Our lasallian values Our School Values are based on the values of the De La Salle Brothers, that is, Faith, Service and Community. Faith Our work is a call from God, a vocation. We believe in our ability and in the ability of others to learn and grow. We believe God will bless us with the necessary gifts for our purpose. Service Faith demands a response to serve. We give zealous service in our life, and pay special attention to the last, the lost and the least. Community We build a fraternal community, sharing a common mission and vision. We carry out our mission together and by association.

Our motto Our school motto, Ora et Labora, which is Latin for “Pray and Work” reflects the life of Saint Joseph. The motto calls upon Josephians to be in communion with, and to be guided by God through prayer, and to always work conscientiously in learning and growth, and in service to God, especially in uplifting the last, the lost and the least amongst us. This is also in line with the Lasallian Spirit of Faith and Zeal.

PRINCIPAL’S FOREWORD

W

e thank God for blessing the school tremendously with another year of learning and growth. This year’s Foreword is a little more special to me because this batch of graduating P6 boys are the very first batch that I have seen grow up right from my first year as Principal in the school, and in many ways, I feel like I’m graduating with them. I am indeed very proud of the boys and the fine young man they are becoming. As a school of the De La Salle Brothers, or a Lasallian school as we call ourselves, we have tried to deepen the sense of belonging by making our Inaugural Ceremony this year a little more symbolic and had all our P5 elder brothers welcome the young P1 boys by putting on their ties for them. This year, we also embarked on our first Labora Expedition with our student leaders to Manila, Philippines, where they went on an expeditionary service learning with their counterparts from Lasalle Greenhills. We also extended our Prefects’ Investiture to include a broader range of student leaders. Hence, a Lasallian Leadership Day was birthed. In the area of Aesthetics this year, our Band and Choir boys attained a Certificate of Accomplishment at the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF), while our Dance boys earned a Distinction. Our school also helmed the SYF Celebrations in the Community called Dance Extravaganza at Bukit Panjang Plaza. We also presented the second edition of Coming Together, our biennial concert to showcase our performing arts talents in the school. This year has been a tremendous year for Sports in SJI Junior, and we have done exceedingly well in our traditional sports, as well as in some surprising new ones. Our up and coming Floorball and Track and Field boys did well with placings in their respective competitions. In Swimming, both our ‘D’ and ‘B’ Boys came in 4th at the Nationals, while our Bowling Junior Boys emerged National Champion. Meanwhile, our Junior boys also came in 2nd in the National Tae Kwon Do (Kyrogi) competition.

Our Badminton Junior and Senior boys did the school proud and came in 3rd and 1st at the South Zone Competitions, as well as 4th and 2nd at the Nationals respectively. Our Tennis Junior and Senior boys also came in 2nd and 3rd at the Nationals. The highlight of the year of sporting achievements goes to our Football teams. Both our Senior and Junior boys emerged South Zone Champions, and the Senior boys went on to come in 4th at the Nationals while our Juniors emerged the National Champion. It was a truly memorable Football season and a very sweet victory winning the double championship after many patient years of training and learning from defeat.

Theresa’s Home. We continue to be blessed by a committed core of Catholic Parent Volunteers and Catholic teachers to facilitate our catechism and core Catholic programmes such as Masses and daily prayer services. Looking ahead to 2019, the school will be celebrating the Tercentenary of the death of St John Baptist de La Salle, founder of our Lasallian schools, and it would be a good opportunity to re-examine our commitment to the vision and mission of Lasallian schools. Next year, we will also be marking the 65th Anniversary of the school, as well as celebrating the 50th year of our PTA, which is a significant milestone as it is one of the oldest such associations in Singapore.

In Scouts, our troop attained the Frank Cooper Sands Silver Award and 8 boys also successfully attained the Akela Award. In Robotics, our teams won the Best Mechanical Design, Gracious Professionalism, and Best Mentor at the First Lego League Singapore. In the National Robotics Competition, they also emerged victorious in the presentation segment, winning awards for Best in Programming, Engineering and Content. In the Primary Schools Debate Open, our P5 debating team worked hard and emerged Division 2 Champions.

For all the good progress and achievements of our boys and the school, I cannot help but feel grateful to God, for making many seemingly impossible things possible. I am also deeply inspired and appreciative of the many staff, parents and stakeholders, who continue to have faith, hope and love for the school. As we say each day in our prayer, I will continue to do all my actions for the love of God.

On the academic front, we piloted MOE’s Student Learning Space and also implemented e3, our use of iPad in learning programme for all our P4 boys. We have also continued to implement MOE’s PERI HA programme, deepening the use of formative assessments strategies in all our classes.

Mr Timothy Goh Principal

Ora et Labora!

Our alumni, the St Michael’s Alumni Association (A Heritage of SJI Junior), continues to grow in its mission to connect the old boys with the school. This year, they held their first cohort Homecoming dinner, which saw boys who left the school 10, 25 and 40 years ago coming together for an evening of reconnections with their former classmates, ex-teachers and alma mater. Our Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) continues its legacy of building strong bonds between the school and families, and has continued with the Movie Night, Father-Son Camp, Dare to Play and Children’s Day celebrations. This year, they continued to expand opportunities for families to bond meaningfully through community service projects to places such as St

n the morning of 12 March, 60 participants comprising students and their family members came together to share their time and effort in blessing others by volunteering in the SJI Junior PTA Family Community Service Activity at the Willing Hearts Soup Kitchen between 6.30am and 11.00am! To help the Willing Hearts Soup Kitchen prepare hot meals for 5000 needy people, participants got their hands dirty (not literally of course!) in various tasks from labelling and packing lunch boxes, cutting tomatoes, washing utensil, to delivering the lunch boxes to the beneficiaries living in various parts of Singapore. Though tiring, it was definitely a purposeful experience for the all the participants who had come together to serve the community as an SJI Junior family, living out our Lasallian values of Faith, Service and Community!

Our school Principal, Mr Timothy Goh, joyously welcomed everyone. He was thankful to the teachers for their dedication and commitment to the students. He was grateful that the parents came together to organise a meaningful event for the teachers. The parents also presented each teacher with a beautiful tealight holder. It is a symbol of our teachers being the guiding light for the boys and it also expresses the wish that they pass on the faith and values to the boys.


T

he highlight of our yearly Children’s Day Celebration is the Children’s Day Recess Carnival organised by the PTA Executive Committee in partnership with our Parent Volunteers!

ur Primary 5 and 6 Debaters did our school proud in the Primary Schools Debate Open (PSDO) and Wits and Words Debate Competition respectively. Though not a CCA, weekly training started since early January to hone their oratorical and critical thinking skills, putting them through the rigours of a typical debate setting. Even those not fielded in the main team played important roles, playing the devil’s advocate and sparring with the main speakers. Our boys bore the fruits of the labour, garnering several Best Speaker awards in both competitions, with the P6s qualifying for the quarterfinals of the Wits and Words competition and our P5s emerging champions in their Division in the PSDO! Good job boys! Keep the SJI Junior flag flying high!

ur Primary 5 and 6 participants took part in this year’s Kids’ Literature Quiz (KLQ) Competition, held on 19 and 20 April in the qualifying round and semi-finals respectively, hoping to defend our championship. Though participating for the first time, the P5s managed the additional workload conscientiously by attending weekly trainings with their P6 counterparts, which started in Term 1. Training sessions focused on preparing the boys in the various genres of literature and the countless books which they would be quizzed on, with the reserves pulling their weight too. We were also grateful for the unwavering support of our parents. Our boys, unfortunately, did not qualify for the Finals, held on 22 April, a first since we participated in 2016, due to the stiff competition and the participation of many secondary schools, whom we were pitted against. The eventual winner was Raffles Girls’ School who represented Singapore in the World Finals 2018 in New Zealand. We will be back next year to try to qualify for the Finals!

National English Writing Competition

T

he National English Writing Competition (NEW-C) is an on-the-spot writing competition organised by the Singapore Young Writers Press for students between 8 and 12 years old to promote works by children, for children. Through this competition and the publication of the entries, the competition aims to inspire children to believe that it is possible to write good stories under time constraints when they see their peers doing so. In addition, they will also benefit from reading quality works. Finally, this competition also serves to recognise and encourage budding talents. Our Primary 4 and 5 participants took part in this year’s NEW-C. Representing the school in Category 1 were Dylan Gabriel Tan Jun Aik (4 Joseph) and Izarul Adam Bin Hairulqamar (4 Stephen). Raoul Arashan Raj (5 Joseph) and Samuel Surendran (5 Xavier) represented the school in Category 2. These boys were selected after an internal round of competition. We wish them all the best as we await the results which will be released in January 2019.

P3 and p4 Storytelling Competition

T

o further develop the confidence and public speaking skills of our students, the English Department organised storytelling competitions for the Primary 3 and 4 boys which took place on 10 April and 11 April respectively. The theme of the competition was ‘Being obedient, considerate and caring’. One or more of these values had to be incorporated into the stories. These were values introduced to the boys during assemblies in Term 1. It was our hope that in researching for their stories, the boys’ understanding of these values would be reinforced and they would be inspired to put them into practice in their daily lives. Our young storytellers used a variety of props to bring their stories to life. To captivate the attention of the audience, the contestants donned colourful costumes and made effective use of facial expressions, animated gestures and voice modulation. The competition was so intense that the judges had a difficult time choosing the winners.

P1 and P2 Learning Journeys to Science Centre

I

n July this year, our Primary 2 pupils had a close encounter with creepy crawlies! In line with the Stellar Unit, Slither and Slide, they made a trip to the Science Centre to discover about earthworms and mealworms in an engaging and interactive way. Many were excited to have firsthand experience going to a Science laboratory to handle these live specimens and conduct simple experiments on them to learn more about their habitats and living patterns. Besides learning the differences between an earthworm and a mealworm, they also discovered for themselves the interesting features and habits of these creepy crawlies. The fun day ended with each boy bringing home his own craft work of a worm. In July and August, our Primary 1 boys explored the world of frogs and toads at the Science Centre too! In alignment with the book, Poggy Frog and the Cows, the boys learned about these creatures in a fun and interactive manner. They were treated to live specimens of frogs, and they discovered many amusing facts about these amphibians such as their habitats and the different ways they move. They also explored the life cycle of frogs. At the end of the class, each boy brought home his very own craft activity of a frog.

Held between 9 April and 12 April, our boys took the learning of the language out of the classroom and applied them through word games like Boggle, Guess the Emoji and Word Scramble. To get our boys enthused in reading, library activities were also organised. Participants of EL Week activities were given game cards in which they earned stamps by participating in the games. The top 3 classes in each level were awarded points in the school’s Class Points Systems. The English Department would like to thank our Parent Volunteers and teachers for organising and running the EL Week.

P5 Mother Tongue (Chinese) Cultural Performance

I

n order to make the Chinese Language come alive, we brought our P5 boys who are taking Chinese as their Mother Tongue language to a Chinese Drama Performance entitled ‘Journey to the West—Zhu Ba Jie’s Wedding’ on 12 July at the National Library Drama Centre. The boys were captivated by the kungfu moves and the mischievous acts of the Monkey King. Most significantly, the boys were seen discussing enthusiastically about the show in Chinese on the return journey! Way to go, boys! Keep the love of the language alive!

P1 Mother Tongue Parent Workshop

A

Chinese Language workshop for P1 parents was held on 27 January. The main objective of this workshop is to give parents some tips on how they can support their child in the learning of the Chinese Language. We started off with our Mother Tongue Language HOD, Mr Vincent Teo, sharing with the parents about the Primary 1 Holistic Assessment.

The session was followed by informative sessions on ways to assist their child in word recognition, making use of online learning resources, and ways to make Chinese Language learning more fun through the introduction of Chinese rhymes. We ended the session with an interactive dialogue session between parents and the P1 Mother Tongue teachers.

Hangzhou Chong Wen Experimental School Visit

C

hong Wen Experimental School visited our school on 5 February. The P5s played host to their peers from Hangzhou during their brief visit to the school.

The visit was kicked off at The Star after a simple welcoming ceremony and an exchange of souvenirs. A guided school tour was conducted to provide some background information on the founding of SJI Junior, and to showcase the various facilities of the school. After that, our visitors learned basic coding and programming of robots from our Robotics Senior team. Classroom immersion was included and our foreign visitors were given a glimpse into the life of a Junior Josephian. The participants were treated to a simple buffet of local delicacies before ending the day.

CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION

O

Blessings in abundance

n 15 February, the school community joyously celebrated Chinese New Year. We started with our Chaplain, Father Simon, blessing the oranges. The performance proceeded with the traditional lion and dragon dance. The boys were most enthralled by a special Chinese New Year-themed magic show. All our boys were so excited when the magician invited Mr Goh on stage to be part of the act. What’s a celebration without singing? At the finale, our boys sang heartily Chinese New Year songs which not only helped to add to the Chinese New Year atmosphere, but also enhanced the understanding of the Chinese culture.

Recess Math Programme

I

n Term 2, the Mathematics Department pioneered a Recess Math Programme to help boys beef up their numeracy skills in addition and subtraction with regrouping and also in multiplication and division. Two boys from each P2 class were nominated to participate in this programme. These boys attended the sessions for 10 minutes of their recess from Monday to Thursday. They reviewed the addition, subtraction algorithms or concepts and multiplication tables through fun activities such as flash cards, quizzes and multiplication games. At the end of the week, most of the boys developed keener interest in Math. Some even showed noticeable improvement.

32

ST JOSEPH’S INSTITUTION JUNIOR ANNUAL 2018

We owe the success of this programme to the many dedicated Parent Volunteers who generously gave of their time to attend briefings on how to carry out the activities and to log the progress of the boys. Their patience and gentle guidance is truly commendable. Special thanks also to Mdm Azlinda and Mdm Amanda Soon who assisted in the making of some of the teaching materials, and Mrs Teong in helping with the recruitment of Parent Volunteers.

epresentatives from all seven P4 classes competed in the Grand Final of the “Cotton Bud Launcher” competition on 26 March. A “Cotton Bud Launcher” is a device made of a recycled bottle and uses compressed air to propel a cotton bud some distance away. The boys had fun designing and playing with their launchers. Every launcher was the fruit of each boy’s creativity. The Science teachers shortlisted their potential class representatives using the videos of launchers posted in Flipgrid and then having the boys compete with their classmates to see who could fire their “Cotton Bud Launcher” the furthest. These class finalists were given the chance to compete with one another for the honour of representing the class. These were the representatives from each class: 4 Joseph - Jasdave Singh Sidhu 4 Patrick - Leo Riki Chandra 4 Anthony - Johann Emmanuel Chong 4 Stephen - Zachary Matthew Chee Wei Xiang 4 Michael - Kayden Chan 4 Raphael - Avery Karlsen 4 Gabriel - Ricco Tan Through this event, the boys got to see different cotton bud launcher designs. Everyone had a great experience building their cotton bud launcher, making the video presentation and sharing their creations with one another.

s part of Project 1:10, the Primary 3s went on a learning journey to the Singapore Botanic Gardens. It was an enriching experience for them to learn about all the flora and fauna in the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The multilayered ecosystem of herbs and ferns, climbers, shrubs, and trees provided a great learning space for our P3s to explore. They got a chance to feel, smell, observe and hear all that were around them. They also documented their learning diligently along the way and were able to return to their classrooms to apply their learning in their P3 Science topic on Plant diversity. It was an enriching learning experience!

P5 Learning Journey to the Science Centre

T

he Primary 5 pupils went to two different workshops hosted by the Science Centre in March. One of the workshops was an introductory course to DNA. It was a fun and enriching experience for the pupils as they dealt with the interesting topic of DNA and how scientists solve crime scene investigations using the concept of genetic materials. The other workshop which was on Electricity allowed our boys to experiment with circuits and interesting components that could be added on to the simple circuit which they had learned in school. Our P5 participants ended the workshop with a toy that they put together using simple diodes, LED lights and wires.

January The annual Inaugural Service held on 9 January started off the year’s liturgical and para-liturgical celebrations. With Brother Paul Ho as the Guest-of-Honour, what was different this year was the fact that the concourse was made the centre stage with the entire school population gathered around it. At the service which included prayers from the main religions, the school proudly declared, “I am, You are, We are Lasallians”. left Some staff members and students invited on stage for the feet washing ceremony right Our principal, Mr Goh, washing the feet of a student

April On 6 April, we again put ourselves in the Holy Presence of God during the Founder’s Day celebration by the lighting of a candle by Brother Collin Wee. ‘Glorious Patron’, with lyrics which summarised the vision and work of our Founder, St John Baptist de Lasalle, rang through the hall prior to the proclamation of the Word and prayers of the different faiths.

The focus of this year’s para-liturgical celebration on Teachers’ Day was showing gratitude to all the teachers in our school who had toiled through the months and years teaching, guiding, honing and leading their charges to become the people God wants them to be. This was done by reflecting on the words of the Patron Saint of Teachers, our Founder, St John Baptist de La Salle, and through thoughtfully-selected songs, ‘I learned from you’ and ‘In your hands’.

Easter Play

P

ut together by our Catholic Parent Volunteers during assembly on 20 April, “Let me tell you about Him” was an Easter Musical Play about Jesus, his miracles, passion, death and resurrection, witnessed and related by John, the beloved disciple of Jesus. The play was very entertaining, with a good mix of song, drama, impressive props and sound effects like the shaking tomb, rolling stone and the realistic wounds of Jesus. The storyline was very well-scripted, simple, clear and acted out splendidly.

The acting and voice-overs were well-synchronised. In short, everything fell into place! Great praise and credit goes to the script writer, director, props, actors and singers who pulled everything together with just four practice sessions and one full rehearsal! It was evident that they had put their whole heart and soul into this performance. The 2018 Easter Play was indeed a special treat and a great all-in-one experience where the assembly got to know more about the Easter story!

JI Junior held its first Labora Expedition from 2 to 5 September at Lasalle Greenhills, Philippines. 17 Primary 5 Junior Josephians and 3 teachers took part in this inaugural programme. This serve as one of the pinnacles of our Junior Josephian’s leadership experience in SJI Junior which is in line with the our mission of educating “men of integrity and men for others”. During the expedition, our boys were introduced to the Lasalle Greenhills community and their mission, and were

immersed in the cultural aspects of Manila. Throughout the journey, they were guided and facilitated by the staff there. There were many opportunities for interaction with fellow peers, many of whom would have also been to Singapore as part of a collaborative exchange programme with Lasalle Greenhills. Indeed, our boys learnt about values beyond their books and far beyond our shores. We cannot wait to see how they will put this into practice in their future projects to come. Ora et Labora!

Founder’s Day and Prize Giving Day

F

ounder’s Day and Prize Giving Day was celebrated on 6 April. We were very honoured to have Brother Collin Wee, FSC. as our Guest of Honour.

Josephian Junior Award

G

uest-of-Honor Brother Collin Wee, esteemed guests, Principal Mr Goh, Vice-Principals Mr Lim and Mrs Tan, parents, teachers and fellow Josephians. Good morning and Happy Founder’s Day. It is my greatest honour to be back at my alma mater and to stand before you today to receive the Josephian Junior award, an award that I could not have possibly achieved if not for the many teachers and fellow Josephians’ guidance, coaching, forgiveness and opportunities that have been given to me. The six years of primary school life was not a bed of roses; but it was also a fun, exciting, fulfilling and memorable journey. I saw myself from a goody-two-shoe boy in Primary 1 and 2, to one who started to be late in submitting Chinese homework in Primary 3, which eventually led to the teacher calling my dad. Learning from where I had gone wrong, a better- me evolved as I moved into Primary 4; and with God’s grace, was given the opportunity to serve in various leadership roles in upper primary. Despite going slightly off-track for a while, my teachers have never given up on me but instead, I experienced their kindness, care and concern. Not only have they taught us academic subjects but they also shared stories, life lessons and imparted values to us. They led by example when they apologised to the class, showing us what humility is. They do not judge, when I asked additional questions to clarify my understanding; and they stayed back after lessons to check on students who required more assistance, not forgetting the last, the lost and the least. They coached us to build confidence, guided us to break mind barriers, and help us to believe in our ability to learn, grow and to have faith in ourselves when working towards a goal. Their exemplary behaviour and positive values exhibited are intangible lessons which I will hold dear in my heart, not just as a twelve-year-old boy but for perpetuity, with no age barrier. Six years of primary school education may sound long, but it actually passes quickly because of friendships built with fellow Josephians. From the first few days of school in Primary 1, where my recess buddy gave me a note at the end of the buddy program that read "You are never a failure if you try; but you are only a failure if you never try"... till the last year of school at Primary 6 where one of my friends gave me an encouragement note when he knew I was upset with my Chinese preliminary results, and the message read "Failure is just the stepping stone to success". I have to say, I am truly blessed to be surrounded by Josephians, who selflessly encourage me when I needed it and positively pushed me to do better. They have definitely made my primary school journey a lot easier, fun and exciting.

ST JOSEPH’S INSTITUTION JUNIOR ANNUAL 2018

I may be the recipient of the Josephian Junior Award, but this is an award that I need to share with all my teachers and fellow Josephians, for they have led the way in demonstrating the Lasallian values which drives me to be a better Josephian. Also, to our Principal Mr Goh and teachers of the Perfectorial Board, thank you for believing in me each time you entrusted me with tasks, and thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve the school. Last but not the least, thank you Mum and Dad, for being the wonderful supporters you have always been. Whether I was going through a difficult period or celebrating an occasion, both of you are always there for me, supporting me and cheering me on! Fellow Josephians, before I end, if you may allow me, I would like to leave behind a message with you - and that is to encourage YOU, to be a Leader within your circle of influence, touch someone’s life and bring out the BEST in Yourself and Others! Thank you and Ora et Labora! Isaac Yap Guan Teng (2017)

Leadership Day

top NE Ambassadors bottom left CCA Leaders bottom right Prefect EXCO

S

JI Junior held its first Leadership Day this year. It is an effort by the school to give greater recognition to the student leaders who had been playing the role of “Leaders for the Leaders”. Thus, this year, our National Education (NE) Ambassadors, Co-Curricular Activity (CCA) Leaders and Prefects were formally recognised and appointed in their respective student leadership roles.

Project 1:10 Social Studies Learning Journey

T

his year, our P1-5 boys went to their respective learning journeys during the last week of Term 1.

The P1 boys went to the Civil Defence Heritage Gallery and experienced what fire fighters and rescuers undergo in a rescue operation. Our P2 boys made their way to the Singapore Philatelic Museum where they learnt about how stamps provide a window to the history of Singapore and the world. The P3 boys made a trip to Little India. It was a wonderful experience for them as they were able to better understand and appreciate the Indian culture. The P4 boys went to Battlebox. Here, the boys learnt about the fall of Malaya and Singapore in World War Two and how an underground command centre functioned during the war. Meanwhile, the P5s had the opportunity to go to the Singapore Discovery Centre. From this learning journey, the boys learnt how the 5 pillars of Total Defence contribute in building a strong, safe and cohesive nation in these times of troubled peace.

Total Defence Day

W

e mark Total Defence Day on 15 February every year as a reminder of what could happen to us if we do not defend Singapore ourselves, and to strengthen our resolve to keep Singapore safe, secure and sovereign.

We commemorated Total Defence Day with a play centering on first aid and learnt about the triumph of good over evil. During recess, our boys sampled sweet potatoes to put themselves in the shoes of our pioneers during the war days of our pioneers and wrote gratitude cards to our nation. The highlights of the commemoration were the exhibits from Kampong Java Neighbourhood Police Centre as the boys got to go on board the police vehicles and had meaningful conversations with the officers.

Racial Harmony Day

I

n collaboration with the Mother Tongue Department’s Mother Tongue Fortnight, the theme for this year’s Racial Harmony Day Commemoration is “Coming Together as One”. With our supportive Parent Volunteers on hand, our boys were engaged in hands-on activities during their respective recesses. Activities included handicrafts, piecing Lego pieces into a Chinese character, making of Malay Kuehs and garland, and playing the game Uri Adithal (Hit the Pot). Our boys were also seen holding on to their coupons excitedly while they queued to redeem their tokens upon the completion of the game cards.

international friendship day

S

JI Junior celebrated International Friendship Day in April. The theme for this year was ASEAN. Our National Education Ambassadors created their own slides during NEAM training to share with the school during pre-assembly and recess. During the assembly programme, our boys watched a play put up by Drama Arts. The play included Aesop Fables like The Lion and The Mouse! We would also like to thank our Parent Volunteers for helping out at the booths during our recess activities. The boys had the chance to guess the food items and clothing from various countries.

ur P5 boys went to the Marina Bay Floating Platform on 7 July for the National Education (NE) Show. The boys enjoyed singing the National Day songs and watched the Red Lions who executed a wingsuit jump for the first time and from a greater height. It was a heart-stopping moment when they fell from 12500 feet and performed a combined salute to the nation with the Naval Combat Divers. The boys were excited throughout the parade which cumulated in a spectacular fireworks display.

n 8 August, the entire school community came dressed in our National colours as the National Day celebration kicked off with an Observance Ceremony. Some of our Scouts were given the honour of marching in with the flag while the Band boys proudly played the National Anthem and the School Rally. Following the Ceremony, Sports SG led the school in a morning workout. This was followed by team-building games in the classroom. The boys played ‘Piece It Up’ and ‘Stack Attack’. The former required teamwork in piecing together a National Day message while the latter saw boys stacking and dismantling cups within a time limit.

Meanwhile, the P4 NE Ambassadors and a few teachers hosted about 40 elderly residents from the Toa Payoh Constituency, allowing them to show our care towards the elderly. They played games, made origami and chatted about the celebration. In the hall, we were treated to some fun quizzes and a surprise performance by Mr Jeremiah Francisco, Mrs Serene Ng, Mr Dominic Phay and Ms Rafidah! A special award segment was done for Ashton Wong from 5 Stephen, who designed the SJI Junior National Day file that was gifted to our boys. The concert concluded in an atmosphere of glee and warmth with a mass sing-along of popular National Day songs! ST JOSEPH’S INSTITUTION JUNIOR ANNUAL 2018

green movement

Green Week

U

nlike previous years, Green Week was carried out at the start of the year. The objective of the event is to create in students an awareness and sense of responsibility towards the environment through explicit teaching and hands-on activities in school. The school population was encouraged to collect old newspapers and magazines from home and bring them to school for recycling. Students, teachers and Parent Volunteers were enlisted to sort and collect old newspapers, magazines, unwanted papers and books for collection in the morning. As usual, the response was overwhelming and a total of 3127kg of waste paper was collected. 4 classes attained the Gold award, 3 classes got the silver award and 10 classes bagged the Bronze award. Earlier on at the start of the year in January, a few pre-assembly sharing sessions were conducted by some NTU students followed by interesting recess activities in the library. Our Eco-Champs also shared on the Green movement in SJI Junior and introduced the games which they had devised during a pre-assembly session. They then tirelessly conducted these games in the school courtyard during the first two recesses for their fellow schoolmates. As Green Week came to an end, all the boys wrote their reflections in their I+Journals and looked forward to more activities next year.

New this year was paper recycling. To make recycling a part of our students’ everyday life, a box was placed in every classroom for putting recycled paper. The Green Representative in each class would deposit it into the recycling bin once it is full. As part of the Values-In-Action programme, the Primary 1 and 2 students cleaned up their own classrooms while the Primary 3s took turns to pick up litter in the canteen and the courtyard after recess. Primary 4 students grew and harvested hydroponic vegetables in school as part of their P4 Science curriculum. They collaborated with Xin Yuan Community Care and delivered the vegetables they had harvested to the elderly staying in the one-room flats in Toa Payoh. Meanwhile, the Primary 5 students picked up litter at the East Coast Park beach followed by a written reflection in their I+Journals. The P6s were not forgotten. As an effort to keep hawker centres clean as well as to promote social graciousness towards cleaners and other patrons, they helped to encourage tray return at various hawker centres as part of their post-PSLE ‘Leave to Serve’ activity. Through all these activities, the school aims to instil in the students a lifelong commitment of care to the community and a sense of awareness of the environment that they live in.

P4 Technology Integration: Parents’ Hands-on Workshop

T

echnology Integration starts at Primary 4 in SJI Junior. Primary 4 is the year when students begin to understand how to use technology gainfully to support their own learning. Healthy screen time habits and responsible digital use is crucial in school and at home. To support and enable our parents in cultivating healthy screen time habits, a series of Parent Workshops were conducted to inform parents about the best practices to cultivate healthy screen time habits. Conducted over three weeks starting from 13 January, parents were also introduced to a range of supervisory tools they can use on their child’s learning devices so that they are able to actively monitor their child’s screen time and surfing habits.

Cyber Wellness

C

yber Wellness @ SJI Junior aims to develop each student into a values-driven, safe and responsible digital learner. This year, we have restructured our programme to include level-specific lesson packages, focused group discussions, reflection, and classroom and recess activities. Our boys were taught to identify the possible

risks of harmful online behaviours, analyse and reflect on the online situation, and translate their understanding into actions which would safeguard their safety. We have also inaugurated our pioneer batch of 14 Primary 4 Cyber Wellness Student Ambassadors who will be championing school-wide Cyber Wellness outreach efforts.

February marked another year where the old boys of the former St Michael’s School came forward to give back to their alma mater. This tradition which started over a decade ago continues to bring joy to families under the Financial Assistance Scheme, encourage our boys to work hard and also inspire them to be life-giving to those around them.

Our Guest-of-Honour, DPM Teo Chee Hean, once again graced the occasion and brought smiles to the faces of the students and their families. This year also marked the changing of guards where the group of men who had been responsible for this event handed over this tradition to a younger group of alumi who share the passion of giving back to their beloved school.

Homecoming Dinner On 18 August, the St Michael’s School Alumni Association (SMSAA) organised the inaugural Homecoming Dinner where former students of St Michael’s School came together to recall memories of yesteryears, to catch up with one another and also to meet up with their former teachers. While the event was especially memorable for those who had graduated 10, 25 and 40 years ago, former students from other graduating years were also in attendance. A handful of them even donned white shirts with khaki pants and even a green and white striped tie to remind them of their days as students in the school. Chatter and laughter filled the school hall that night while our guests feasted on a 7-course meal. Men from different professions took the night off from their families – Yes, wives and kids were not invited - to reminisce and to reconnect with friends they had not spoken in years, possibly even decades. The night’s program also allowed these Michaelians to give back to the school through a mini-auction. It was truly touching to see these old boys rise to the occasion to help the current students in SJI Junior.

art club

P

ottery is, at once, the simplest and the most difficult of all art. It is the simplest because it is the most elemental. It is the most difficult because it is the most abstract.” – Herbert Read, ‘The Meaning of Art’

The Art Club aims to provide opportunities for our students to explore a variety of materials and methods to express themselves, from the two-dimensional to the third. This work year, our Art Club members were ceramic potters in the making! It was no easy feat learning the properties of clay and its art form of pottery. Just as how fragile the fired ceramic is, the process of making the ceramic pot or sculpture is just as delicate.

Our boys visited the Thow Kwang Dragon Kiln Pottery Studio, shared their experience with the school during assembly, as well as showcased our learning by inviting non-Art Club members to our 2018 Art Jam Potters Series in school to mould the actual ceramic clay. A big hand to Wesley Thng of 6 Joseph and Timothy Wong of 5 Stephen for being our studio photographers of our glaze fired works! A handful of our members participated in the most recent 2018 Pameran Poskad, and even sold their postcard-sized artworks at the ION Art Gallery! It was a thrilling experience! We hope our Art continues to inspire the people around us!

he Badminton CCA has once again proven to be one of the top choices for our boys, having a high take-up rate.

and overall discipline, the boys know that they have to give of their best to attain success.

The CCA is split into two teams: Team A is made up of school players while Team B comprises boys in the feeder squad.

The National tournament once again stirred a lot of excitement and nerves. Both teams progressed well in the earlier rounds. The semi-finals proved to be a tough hurdle for our Junior Team and they eventually had to settle for the 3rd / 4th play-offs.

This year has proven to be a very successful year for badminton. For the first time, both teams made it to the top 4 of the Nationals Tournament. The following are the results: 1. South Zone Inter-Primary School Tournament Junior Division – 3rd Senior Division – Champions 2. National Inter-Primary School Tournament Junior Division – 4th Senior Division – 2nd Both teams train very diligently under the watchful eyes of our coach, Hamid Khan. With the emphasis on team spirit

Our Senior Team, on the other hand, progressed all the way to the Finals against Tao Nan School. It was a thrilling encounter with the game tied at 2 – 2. The final match went to a rubber set, and although we did not manage to clinch the decider, we have progressed by leaps and bounds over the last 2 years. We look forward to 2019 as we continue to build on our success. Congratulations to both our Junior and Senior Teams!

brass band

I

t has been an eventful year for the SJI Junior Brass Band. Our boys, under the guidance of our conductors, Mr Jason De Hamel and Mr Goh Koon Chuan, have taken part in a few exhilarating performances over the year. The band performed during many school events such as Founder’s Day and National Day commemoration, contributing to the celebratory atmosphere of these events. We are fortunate to have had the opportunity to take part in a band exchange programme this year with the Band Director’s Association of Singapore. We also had a combined band Perth trip with other fellow Lasallian schools – St Anthony’s Primary

School and St Stephen’s School. These opportunities inspired our boys to work harder towards technical excellence and provided them with invaluable performing experience. In the Singapore Youth Festival 2018 Arts Presentation for Band (Brass), our band achieved the Certificate of Accomplishment. Our hard work paid off, but more importantly, our boys grew as musicians through the process of practising and performing music. We hope that our boys will pick up the values of perseverance, team work and discipline through their time with us, as well as a love for performing and musicianship.

Boys in Team A continued to hone their skills in preparation for upcoming competitions with additional trainings on Thursdays at the Civil Service Club. In July 2017, boys in Team A participated in the 16th National Primary Schools Tenpin Bowling Championships and our bowlers executed their skills very well and displayed great sportsmanship during the games.

The ground is set for the club to build on the current strengths for better achievements in the new CCA year.


Choir The SJI Junior Choir aims to develop our Choristers’ vocal talents as well as instil discipline and promote teamwork. The boys had opportunities to attend events and perform at external arenas. The boys from the Senior team also got to listen to the angelic voices of the Vienna Boys Choir at the Esplanade and be inspired by them. It was indeed a rare experience to be able to attend this top-notch performance. The boys were also invited to perform at the National Museum. They entertained the audience and sang to

popular Singapore tunes. It was also the Junior team’s first performance and they were very excited. The Senior team also participated in a choir exchange programme at Rosyth Primary. These performances helped to provide exposure and build their confidence. In April, the Senior team participated in the SYF Arts Presentation and was awarded the Certificate of Accomplishment. They displayed perseverance and determination despite having only half a year to prepare for it. We are proud of their commendable effort!

As always, the audience was treated to a vibrant and spectacular performance by our boys.

It has also been a year of significant achievement. Our Senior Dancers managed to bring glory to the school in the first semester this year when they attained the Distinction award at the Singapore Youth Festival 2018 held in April. Meanwhile, our Junior Dancers attended many training sessions during which they learnt different hip-hop routines. The exposure also trained them to work hard, persevere and hone their skills to perform at their best for future performances!

FOOTBALL

F

ootball CCA in 2017/2018 underwent some changes. We provided 3-tiered level of participation for the boys through the CCA group, the Development Squad (DS) and the School Team. The CCA group and DS Team B took part in JJF5s Tournament. In Semester 2 2017, we participated in various tournaments to prepare the team for the 2018 Interschool Tournament. These included a 7-a-side in Victoria School, the Meridian Cup and JF50 held at the Sports School.

Our School Teams performed marvellously in the National Schools Games Football Championship 2018. Both the Junior and Senior Boys were Champions in the South Zone! Our Senior Boys put up a good fight during the Nationals and came in fourth. The Junior Team went all the way to the finals of the Nationals and won, emerging Champions! It was a great year for us. We hope to continue to do well. With the support of the school and parents, we look forward to the new season in the next work year.

infocomm club

O

ur Infocomm Club aims to deepen students’ passion for Information Technology (IT). We equip students with IT skills and knowledge and broaden their perspectives on IT through exposure in photography, videography, programming and game development. During photography lessons, our Infocomm Club members learned the connections between visual and other forms of expression.

In programming and game development, our students honed their web development skills progressively. They started with the basic HTML and moved on to more advanced script languages. Above all, the Infocomm Club, through our activities, enabled our members to forge strong friendships and a sense of camaraderie.

Through Videography, we trained our students to become artists. They were trained to have the habits of mind of an artist which requires discipline, planning and “intellectual curiosity”.

cub scouts

T

he mission of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people, through a value system based on the Scout Promise and Law, to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society. Our SJI Junior Cub Scouts programme aims to provide a group environment which is intellectually stimulating, physically vital and directed towards satisfying our boys’ basic need to face and overcome challenges. During our weekly meetings, our cub scouts aim to earn a series of badges through games and outdoor activities which provide them knowledge of basic scouting skills. At the same time, they learn the values of discipline, teamwork, leadership skills and an adventurous spirit to do things they have not done before. Besides the annual Job

Week which helped our boys learn the value of honest hard work, our boys also attended the National Cub Scout Field Day on 7 April, South Area Orienteering Competition on 24 March and did litter-picking at Bishan Park, all of which strengthened the Scout spirit in the boys. In recognition of their hard work, the SJI Junior Cub Scouts Unit was awarded the Silver Frank Cooper Sands Award (2017). In July 2018, our Cub Scouts also achieved a Silver Award for The Gang Show 2018 hosted by SJI Junior. The boys have shown great commitment in their CCA and have benefited from the training sessions. Let’s continue to work hard and keep the Scout flame alive!

tennis

T

he Tennis CCA trained around 80 boys last year, helping them develop their playing skills, resilience and teamwork. With the support of parents, our Senior and Junior teams were able to stay competitive and were handsomely rewarded when they won trophies at the annual National Championships. The Senior Team was 2nd runner-up and the Junior Team emerged 1st runner-up. Several players who had shown potential were invited to participate in a modified Tennis tournament in July 2017. Outside of CCA, the school is happy to know that our Tennis boys continue to pursue their interest through private training sessions and practising with their family members during their free time.

Student testimonial: “I am very happy and proud to be part of SJI Junior’s Tennis School Team of 2018. It is a great honour to be able to represent my school in the National School Games. This is what I have always strived for when I joined Tennis CCA. I was bursting with pride at the Prize Giving Ceremony when we collected our First runner-up Trophy for the Junior Team. Besides match experience, teamwork and unity, I have also learned to fight for my teammates collectively. Our team spirit was electric! I hope to be able to get a chance to also play in Singles matches next year. I will keep training hard to improve my game and strive for even greater achievements for SJI Junior. I believe I have much more to contribute to our team.” - Jared Dylan Poon (4 Gabriel)

errata On page 8 of the 2017 School Yearbook, we had inadvertently omitted the names of our PTA Auditors, Mr Brendan Khoo and Mr Mark Lim. We also made a mistake in the 2017 RHB-The Straits Times National Spelling Championship on page 18. Ignatius Khoo was from 6 Joseph, not 6 Anthony. We apologise for the errors.
