Founder's Day & Student Leadership Investiture

Celebrating Our Heritage

To commemorate Founder’s Day, the school embarked on a 2-week long celebration, imbuing each day with stories, quotes or bites of information about our IJ heritage as well as involving students in heritage activities.  Each day’s morning reflection focused on a particular tenet of the IJ and KC story such as the motto and values to strengthen our understanding and appreciation of our heritage, while the daily noon prayer focused on a novena to our founder, Blessed Nicholas Barré.  


Founder's Day Mass

The last day of term two beckoned us to recall and take stock of our KC journey.  We looked back on the first semester as we commemorated the Feast Day of our founder, Blessed Nicolas Barré.

Considering our heritage, we were invited to contemplate on our experiences as a village in Katong Convent.  Through the homily and reflection shared during the Eucharistic Celebration, Rev Fr Alphonsus Raj encouraged all students and staff to continue our history with this same attentiveness towards God’s call, made since some three and a half centuries ago.


Student Leaders Investiture

This year’s Student Leaders’ Investiture took the form of a new format and was split into two parts.

Part I sought to recognise the service and contributions of the outgoing student leaders, while part II was focussed on the endorsement of the incoming student leaders of 2020/2021.

Organised by the Student Leadership Board, the theme for this year’s investiture was ‘The Gift of Love’. To them, being a student leader exceeds simply carrying out their duties and responsibilities. It is their belief that leadership means going above and beyond to show care, compassion and love for people around them, and they strive to do so by giving from their hearts unconditionally. They demonstrated adaptability through organizing the event using technology and it was a meaningful milestone for our student leaders on their leadership journey.
