CHRISTMAS END OF TERM 2012
The school prefects held their annual prefects concert on the tennis courts on Thursday 13th December and everyone had an amazing time! Everyone gathered early, trying to grab the best spots to view the festivities. The Form 6s did a great job, organising what turned out to be a truly fun filled experience for everyone... there were skits and songs, dances and of course, music!! Just click on the images to check it out!
Of course, Christmas in our school, like any special occasion, would not be complete without, our communion with God. So on our last school day for 2012, we gathered in our school chapel to celebrate the joy of the birth of our saviour, Jesus Christ. We praised his name with our prayers, our voices raised in song, and the sweet notes of our steel pans.
Shubh Divali 2012
SJCPOS has always welcomed expressions of spirituality and of demonstrations of our connection with God. So, on Monday 12th November 2012, on the tennis courts, in the shadow of our Chapel, we shared in the joy of our Hindu brothers and sisters as they celebrated Divali, the festival of lights.
The occasion highlighted East Indian culture, and showcased our students, Hindu, Christians and all, taking part in dances, musical presentations, including tassa drumming, of course, the fashion show! Our eyes were literally stunned by the gold of the bindis and the spicy colours of silk saris and shalwar kameez. Just click on the images above to check out the fun!
SPORTS DAY 2012
On Friday November 2nd, 2012, the day dawned bright and sunny and we were off ... to the circus, as SJCPOS held its annual Sports Day—or as I should call it, “Le Cirque du SJC”!
Each house took on a unique circus character to spice up this year’s proceedings. The main events of course were the athletic races. But just as fun and riveting, were the march past of all house teams, (not forgetting the hilarious skits each presented) and the inter house cheer leading competition, highlighted by a phenomenal dance performed by the entire group of cheerleaders. Below are just a few images that took place during SJCPOS Annual Sports day 2012.
We are so proud of you!
The Ministry of Education has announced that SJCPOS has been awarded 28 National scholarships on the basis of the CAPE results; 5 Open and 23 Additional.
This fantastic achievement continues our long standing tradition of hard work, determination and academic excellence.
The SJCPOS learning community is happy to congratulate the students. But praise goes out not only to the scholars themselves, but also to those staff members, peers and family members without whom this success would not have been possible.

Club Sign-Up Day will be on Wednesday 5th of September.

What's the biggest school event of the year? You guessed it, our School Sports Day. It’s your chance to get involved and show what you’ve got outside the classroom—work hard, play harder. Don’t think you’ll like it? From cheer leading to races to marching and more, I guarantee you’ll find something you like this Sports Day. Did I mention the fun themes?
3) A Very SJCPOS Christmas
For our newest members of the school, Christmas at SJCPOS is magical. What better way to celebrate Christmas at school than with our Form Ones decorating the SJC Christmas Tree in a special ceremony, involving a one-in-a-lifetime trek down the Blue Stairs, Parang and tree trimming?
And speaking of Christmas, start doing your vocal exercises, preparing your hilarious skits and stretching for some cool dance moves—Santa Claus is coming to town in our Prefects’/Captains’ Novelty Christmas Concert!
We can't wait to get it all started!
See you soon,
