We extend our warmest WELCOME to you and your daughters/wards as we begin another meaningful year at CHIJ Secondary! Welcome to a place we call our home-away-from-home ...a place where teachers and parents and students and staff work with...work for...always together in all our Christ-centred partnerships!
We have yet again so much to be thankful for following an astounding 2015. The Parent Support Group Exco congratulates Mrs Karen Tay and staff on an amazing past year of milestones achieved! 2016 has started considerably well with another set of stellar results from our 2015 'O' and 'N' level cohort. Well done teachers, parents and girls!

February 12 2016
Our annual kick-off to a year-long line-up of PSG events is our very special and popular Valentine’s Day. This year sees the theme “Love is the Greatest Gift” lived out in the creative input of our event heads, Rachel Ong and Adrienne Wong. Both ladies organized a wide array of available items that included balloon hearts, cuddly soft bears and rabbits with love messages, heart bookmarks, balloon heart and floral sculptures, heart keychains, heart sweet treats and the girls’ all-time favourite- cotton candy. All made possible with the generous support of our IJ parents. Parents, girls and teachers alike enjoyed the retail experience of “love items”.
Total Defence Day
15 February 2016
Everyone has a part to play in Total Defence. Here in CHIJ Secondary, PSG took on the role of black marketeers – offering girls a delicious alternative to the wartime rations of sweet potatoes. Scarcity and inflated prices were the order of the day. 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. Many thanks to our lovely parent volunteers who graciously toiled over hot stoves to feed the hungry girls!
Easter Monday Egg Hunt
28 March 2016
Easter Joy comes to CHIJ! Our very own Easter Bunny made his/her appearance on Monday 28 March sending girls into a frenzy as they clamoured for Easter eggs from the bunny. Every egg found translated into points for their respective houses. PSG was delighted to sponsor chocolate Easter eggs which were given to girls who returned the eggs they found. It was an egg-cel lent Easter Monday indeed!
International Friendship Day Fair
8 April 2016
International Friendship Day was celebrated on Friday, 8 April. This year, the focus was ASEAN. PSG brought a taste of Indonesia to our students. Delectable Nasi Kuning and Poffertjes (Dutch mini pancakes) were an absolute hit! The girls also tried their hand at a lucky dip – by answering a randomly drawn question and stood to win cute mementoes from Indonesia. Truly, it was a day to remember!
PSG Youth Day Treat
8 July 2016
Sugar and spice and everything nice. That's what IJ girls are made of! What better way to celebrate the sweetness of youth than free cotton candy and popcorn!
Racial Harmony Day
13 July 2016
Rendang, tea eggs, Ayam sio, pai tee, kueh salat.... The list goes on! Racial Harmony was truly a party for the palate as girls and staff sampled a wide selection of delicacies from each ethnic group. This was only possible from our generous parents who contributed the dishes. Not forgetting our fabulous PVs who manned each stall!
