    Default The CHIJ Club

    Yesterday, I have a chat with my friend who is an ex student. She mention to me about a similar club she discovered. This leads me to open one here to honour the school as a whole and at the same time for those forumer that are ex student to gather. I know there are lots of views and comments about the school. But please keep this thread clean and comfortable for everyone. Thanks. ^^

    I, myself is a fan of CHIJ. The girl from the convent I met during my secondary school time, gives me an impression a fine lady from the Victorian times. Gentle, demure and ladylike.

    I have a few collections which I will show later in the thread. While collecting school badges from St Joseph Convent at Upper Serangoon, I managed to meet the principle. She was nice lady which show me the way to the bookshop. I showed her my collection.

    History of IJ

    One hundred and fifty years ago, a small group of Infant Jesus nuns arrived in Singapore from Europe. They had one mission in hand: to build Catholic schools and homes for girls. Their first school, convent and orphanage, was established on Victoria Street which became known as the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus.

    Over the years, the sisters went out on to open schools and centers in many other parts of the island. As the Infant Jesus Sisters celebrate their 150th anniversary in Singapore in 2004, they have six primary schools, four secondary schools, one full school and three homes and centers. Thousands of Singaporean girls have been educated in these schools and hundreds cared for in residences, many of who still maintain close ties to the IJ family.

    An education in the CHIJ gives a sense of belonging while allowing individuals to develop according to their own strengths and interests. This has always been so from the very start.

    An add on to the History from wikipedia

    In February 1854, three Sisters led by Rev Mother St Mathilde Raclot arrived in Singapore and set up the Convent in Singapore at Victoria Street. The sisters got to work and within ten days took in orphans, did needlework to support themselves and taught fourteen children. Soon the number of pupils increased and the school became well-known. In 1894, there were 167 pupils. Ten years later, the enrolment had increased to 300. Secondary education began in 1905. Under Mother Hombeline, the expansion programme continued.

    [taken from CHIJ Primary website]

    The convent, which used to occupy a full street block bordered by Bras Basah Road, Stamford Road, Victoria St and North Bridge Road has since been redeveloped into a retail complex called CHIJmes and part of it has been demolished and converted into the offices of SMRT Corporation.

    In my personal opinion, CHIJ had well established itself from all aspects. I feel it has become a Singapore icon.

    Look at local TV drama , shows , local threatre , stage play , advertisement, you could see girls donning blue pinafore and white blouse.
