PSG Meeting with the Principal
The SJI PSG kicked off the year with a gathering/lunch on 4 February 2012. Principal of SJI Dr Koh Thiam Seng’s address reassured the parents of the school’s commitment to develop the boys to becoming men of integrity and men for others. PSG Chairman Shaun Chan then shared the calendar of activities to be held during the year (See Events page), providing various opportunities for parents to participate as partners-in-education. The parents were then grouped into various sub-committees to network and to review the plan for upcoming activities.
The gathering ended on the high note with a ‘Lo Hei’ session. Over lunch, friendship continued to be forged among the parents, and tips to better engage in their sons’ secondary education were shared.

PSG Parent–Son Bonding Event – Rocks and Rounds @ Safra Yishun – March 3rd
The PSG organised a fun filled morning, where pairs of fathers and sons scaled the rock walls and fired rounds at the shooting gallery. It was heartwarming to see these parents take the time to be with their boys. Wen Rui and Keegan Ng, both from Sec 1, cheered their fathers, KT and Eugene respectively, as both men reached the top of the wall! “I felt enervated but it was exhilarating’, says Eugene. Wen Rui “ I was so happy to see my Dad up there!”.
Everyone was equally excited as they competed in the shooting gallery. Father and son, Noni and Carlos Limpo came in 1st. Not bad at all for the pair who held air rifles for the first time! The day ended with lots of hugs, laughter and parents and sons enjoying the morning together.
