As a Catholic Autonomous School and the oldest CHIJ in the IJ family, we believe in nurturing IJ girls who live out the school motto “Simple In Virtue, Steadfast in Duty” through our IJ Education & Experience Curriculum. A choice school, CHIJ Secondary is progressive in its approach whilst remaining steeped in tradition. CHIJ offers the Art Elective Programme to enable students to realize their creative talents, develop their artistic vision and train their perseverance. We are one of a select group of schools offering Drama as a GCE O-Level subject. All lower secondary students experience our in-house drama programme to enable them to work in a disciplined and collaborative way towards a shared goal, to understand the personal, social and cultural impact of drama. A comprehensive array of Enrichment Programmes offered to all students seeks to broaden their out-of-classroom learning experience. Our Affective Programmes focus on character development and aim to inculcate values in students based on the 3Ls of Learning, Living and Leading. These include the Developmental Leadership Programme, the Values-in-Action programme, self-awareness camps, work attachment programme, and adventure camps.
As the South 3 Cluster Centre of Excellence for Language and the Arts, CHIJ has nurtured many strong performing arts groups: the Concert Band, Choir, Guitar Ensemble, Dance Ensemble, ELDDS and CLDDS. Our signature IJ Goes Global Programme aims to equip IJ students with a more global perspective. The Programme includes Immersion and Twinning Programmes with overseas schools and the IJ Beacon Programme which focuses on serving the disadvantaged in neighbouring countries. We are committed to the holistic development of students in the academic, affective and sports domain so as to achieve a holistic IJ Education.
The Mission of an Infant Jesus Convent is the creation of a Christ-centred school community where all work together for the promotion of truth, justice, freedom and love, with special reference to the needs of the persons who are disadvantaged in any way.
