The Beginning of Term Service held today was a miracle, considering how the Northeast Monsoon brought persistent rain just the day before, and how the rain in Changi this morning was held away from the skies over Potong Pasir, so that the outdoor service for St Andrew’s Junior and Secondary School could be conducted in cool, dry conditions.
Parents, Alumni, Staff and Boys were all looking forward to the familiar reminder of yet another fresh year–
- New Primary 1 boys and their parents joining the family of the Saints
- A new cohort of Secondary 1 boys doing the Crossover Run
- Secondary 3 boys in their long pants
- New Alumnis coming back to witness and help in the Beginning of Term Service
And in singing the School Hymn, remembering:
Before us and beside us,
Still holden by Thy hand,
A cloud of unseen witness,
Our elder comrades stand;
One family unbroken,
We join with one acclaim;
One heart, one voice uplifting
To glorify Thy Name.

After the Beginning of Term Service, the parents of the Secondary School boys were hosted to a breakfast, while the parents of P1 boys attended a talk by SAPTA on how to support our sons in primary one.
