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

The Student Leaders Investiture was conducted on 25 May to recognise the service and contributions made by the outgoing student leaders, as well as to acknowledge and confirm the incoming leaders of 2018/2019.

Organised by the Student Leadership Board, the theme for this year’s investiture was ‘Beyond Self’. The theme was significant to the leaders because of the understanding that leadership is not only about the individual, but going beyond the limits of oneself and extending a helping hand to the community - within and outside of Katong Convent.  

It was indeed a joyful milestone for our student leaders on their leadership journey.
