First Day of School @ IJ Katong 2017

It was an exciting day for our girls as they began their school year at CHIJ (Katong) Primary. Many looked happy and excited as they strolled into the school building. 

The morning started with our new principal, Mrs Judina Cheong, addressing the P2 to P6 students. She welcomed the new staff and students to CHIJ (Katong) Primary and informed the students their 2017 Form Teachers and Co-form Teachers. The students spent the rest of the day getting to know their new teachers and classmates, going through the induction programme as well as the leadership programme planned for them.

The Primary 1 students were just as eager to start their school life at CHIJ (Katong) Primary. To help them ease into primary school, school hours was adjusted for the first 3 days. For Day 1, students were only in school for 3 hours and were engaged in activities specially planned for them by their teachers. During this time, parents attended a forum led by our school's Central Parent Council. 

May 2017 be filled with sweet blessings for all our IJ girls!
