Dear Parents/ Guardians

Welcome to CHIJ Secondary!  We look forward to a brand new year of embarking on this journey with you, your daughter/ ward as well as the teachers & staff of this school, which many of us call our second home.  We are grateful for yet another fulfilling and successful year in 2017.  Congratulations to Mrs Karen Tay and her teachers on their stellar achievements in 2017 especially with the O-Level and N-Level results.  Congrats teachers, parents and girls!
We are grateful for the dedication and commitment of IJ parents with girls from Sec 2 to Sec 5, as well as PSG Alumni mums.  We warmly welcome parents of Sec 1 girls.  We have a vibrant team of 9 members this year; of which 3 are new members who joined us in many of the events last year.  

Vice-Chairperson Mrs Adrienne Wong continues to take the lead in publicity and communications and has served since 2016.

Vice-Chairperson Mrs Dawn Gerard is serving a second year and has the portfolio of updating our Parent Volunteer Database.

Treasurer Mrs Rachel Ong has served since 2015 and will take care of our accounting needs.

Secretary Mrs Audra Chuah continues to serve a second year, ensuring all our meetings are accurately recorded.

Ms Devi Kardjaja is a committed member since 2016 and heads logistics.

Mrs Olivia Tang-Yeo, our Co-Treasurer is one of our new members.

The calendar of events for 2018 is as follows. We have an interesting mix of fun-filled events and look forward to the support of parents and guardians in lending their help in order to make these events a success.  One of the major events that will take place is IJ Fiesta; we need all hands on deck!  For the second year running, we are celebrating Children’s Day at the Secondary level.  We invite parents and guardians who are able to lend their support in terms of time or resources to contact any Exco member.  We would like you to journey with us and your girls in any of the events as listed below.  On behalf of PSG Exco 2018, I wish you and your loved ones a blessed year ahead filled with much joy and love.

Total Defence Day
15 February 2017

Everyone has a part to play in Total Defence. As a tradition, the PSG took on the role of black marketeers – offering girls a tastier food option at a higher price.  This is to instil the sense of scarcity and inflated prices during wartime. If the girls wanted “fancy” food (other than what was offered in the canteen), they had to understand that it came with a price, especially in wartime. Kudos to our lovely parent volunteers who tirelessly toiled over hot stoves and being part of the valuable lesson for our girls.

International Friendship Day Fair
7 April 2017

PSG brought a taste of Thailand to our girls. The girls sampled the traditional lemongrass drink, basil chicken with rice and topped it off with mango sticky rice for dessert. Thai titbits were offered when the girls could identify ingredients that made the titbits; crispy coconut pancakes, eggrolls, coconut candy and other traditional candy. Many girls tried the lemongrass drink for the first time and were pleasantly surprised by the refreshing taste. Towards the close of the event, some even requested for their tumblers to be filled.
It was truly an eye opener for many of our girls unfamiliar with thai traditional foods.

Night Study
24 July 2017

'N' &'O' level girls who remain in school to study look forward to dinner time - to take a break from books and to fill their tummies with delicious home-cooked meals from PSG and their parent volunteers.


Craft Fair
2 August 2017

…All things pretty and nice to help rekindle the spirit of “handmade” in the current day and time where technology seems to dominate our lives.


Bake Sale
7 August 2017
It is heartening to have many teachers and parents support funding raising events such as this to provide for the many activities that the PSG organises for the girls.


PSG Prayer Support for 'N'&'O' Level Exams
11 September & 23 October 2017

Held at the school chapel, the principal, teachers and parents join the PSG prayer sessions held at the start of the first paper of each exam to seek divine intervention for the girls taking the exams.


Cookie & Cupcake Day
15 September 2017

A bi-annual event where girls dash to choose their favourite cookie/cupcake designs and it is heartwarming to see girls sharing or even foregoing their favourite designs for their friends.  


Children's Day @IJSec
29 September 2017

A first in CHIJ Secondary, the girls were exhilarated to be "allowed" to celebrate Children's Day; many were just awed at the goodies and exclaim "We can celebrate Children's Day?"


IJ Open House
4 November 2017
The PSG assisted in welcoming potential Secondary One students and their parents by providing biscuits accompanied with a cup of iced Milo, coffee or tea.
