Achievements

The annual Students’ Conference serves as a platform to provide opportunities for
students to share what they have learnt with their fellow schoolmates and teachers.
At the same time, it allows the sharpening of oral competencies and thinking skills of
students so as to build confidence in them.
 
Different themes were organised each year since 2009 such as “Values in Action for
Today’s Youth”, “Authentic Science, Technology and Environmental Learning” and
“Learn a skill in a Day”
 
The conference also encompassed talks by guest speakers such as Mr Puvan
Ariaratnam, Deputy Director from the Character and Citizenship Education Branch,
Student Development Curriculum Division. Mr Saminathan Gopal, the principal of
STEM INC. (Science Centre Singapore) shared with our students on what it takes to
be working in the STEM field. Another guest speaker from Ngee Ann Polytechnic,
Ms Arunima Chatterjee also took time to explain to our Sec 3 students on the
importance of Sustainable Design in the real world context.
 
Beside these engaging talks, Yusoffians enriched their learning in the conference
through numerous concurrent sessions conducted by our very own student
presenters.

Chairman's Message

 

In today’s society, education is much more than just students attending school and obtaining paper qualifications. It is ‘social’ education where parents are more informed, active and participative in the schools’ and their children’s curriculum.  The teachers and staff of the school seek the partnership of parents to collaborate for the children’s development.

 

This explains why the Ministry of Education officially launched the 1st Parents Support Group (PSG) Forum in 2014, in recognition of the efforts and successes we can generate through the combined efforts of parents and schools.

In YI, our Parents Support Group, YI-Blossom, has been in existence since 2001. I am honored to have been able to work with the school leaders, who have been very supportive towards YI Blossom.

YI-Blossom believes that our involvement has contributed positively to our children’s growth and we continue to seek parents’ active participation.

 

We look forward to the continued contribution of ex-Yusoffians who have walked through YI’s gates, to share their success stories as they contribute to society in their own ways. In doing so, they are contributing to the development of the future citizens of tomorrow.

 

YI-Blossom would like to express our appreciation to past and current committee members for their valuable contributions, not only in kind but more importantly, in investing their time, thus contributing to the continued success of YI-Blossom.

 

Moving forward, we still have much to contribute and we warmly encourage all parents to join us in YI-Blossom.

 

Lionel Teo

Chairman, YI-Blossom
