The Class of 2021 includes 119 boys who were admitted to SJI at Secondary 1 in 2016 under the 6-year Integrated Programme that leads to the IBDP in years 5 and 6. The results achieved by our Class of 2021 is evident of a trend that the SJI IBDP relates well with students who enjoyed high academic expectations from the programme. They have found joy in learning by being risk-takers who pursue their interests and passion instead of being rote-learners. This cohort was admitted into SJI IBDP shortly after COVID-19 measures began in January 2020 where they had to adapt to a compromised college life due to the pandemic and the constantly evolving Safe Management Measures that saw them having to adapt to learning online and having limited physical activities and interactions with their schoolmates.
Mr Justin Arul Pierre, Principal of SJI, says “The Class of 2021 has demonstrated how resilience, determination, effort and great faith in their ability to overcome challenges can produce good results, despite the various disruptions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have witnessed the hard work put in by the students from this cohort, many of whom have attained exceptional results despite their heavy commitments in various national competitions and student leadership responsibilities. They have exemplified the very best of being a Josephian – by staying the course with faith to keep learning, through service to help each other through the examinations, and as one community to look forward with hope. I also wish to thank all our teachers for their dedication, hard work and selfless efforts in guiding our students. The excellent results testify to the work of our competent and caring educators who are always prepared to go the extra mile and they have done all this in the face of the more demanding circumstances of this pandemic time. Truly, these Josephians are an exceptional class: they're a fine balance of grit and compassion. We are immensely proud of their achievements and wish them the very best as they move on to seek their passion in their future endeavours.”
As a Catholic and Lasallian school, SJI is committed to developing every student’s character and to helping them realize their academic potential so that they become men and women whose education empowers them to make a positive difference in the world. The IBDP results of the 2021 cohort are an affirmation of the quality of the balanced and holistic education offered at SJI.
