Dear Parents/ Guardians,

Year 5 Parents’ Orientation Evening & Global Education Programme Briefing 2018

We would like to extend a warm welcome to your daughters, sons and wards to SJI, and to you as parents/ guardians of Josephians. We cordially invite you to our Year 5 Parents’ Orientation Evening and Global Education Programme (GEP) Service Trip briefing on Thursday 22nd February 2018.
