At SJI, we believe in growing every student to become a Person of Integrity and a Person for Others – a Josephian who lives life such that the world becomes a better place because of him or her.
Developing our Josephians Holistically
Besides the academic and cognitive development, SJI takes pride in the holistic and character development of our Josephians through:
Co-Curricular Activities (CCA)
CCAs play an important part in the all-round development of each boy and enables him to actively participate in the life of the school community. These activities promote service, teamwork, leadership, group and self-discipline, loyalty, healthy living and sportsmanship.
Every Josephian is expected to develop and use his talents for his personal development, as well as for the service of the school and the wider community.
In the first 4 years of his secondary education, a Josephian can participate in one of the following CCAs:
Sports & Games
Clubs & Societies
What Our Boys Love About Their CCAs
Track & Field
St John Brigade
Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS)
Students doing the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), as part of their involvement in co-curricular activities, are required to participate in Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) at Years 5 & 6.
CAS enables students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development as well as their social and civic development, through experiential learning.
Students must demonstrate satisfactory participation in CAS for the award of the IB Diploma, a requirement by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO). This is achieved through the student’s active and balanced engagement in all three strands: creativity, activity and service and through having demonstrated the seven learning outcomes observed in the student’s personal reflections.
SJI places holistic development at the heart of its approach to learning. Learning beyond the classroom through camps, outdoor expeditions and overseas trips complements and extends learning in the classroom and provides students with the opportunities to develop essential life skills that promote teamwork, resilience and a sense of service.

The focus of leadership development in SJI is centred on the Lasallian values of Faith, Service and Community.
We recognize that every student has the potential to lead. The school provides a wide range of opportunities for our students to exercise leadership.
In SJI, to LEAD means to SERVE. Student leaders are developed to know how to share their vision, enable their team members, be responsive to changes, be values-centred and always be encouraging to those whom they lead and work with.
Our students are provided with training during the different academic years to enable them to be effective in their leadership role.
Every student is expected to be an agent for the transmission of the Lasallian values of Faith, Service and Community to his/her fellow Josephians. They are encouraged to serve and lead others to add value to our school community, society, their friends and families and ourselves. They take a holistic approach to work, promotes a sense of community and share responsibility in decision-making.
