annual innovation programme 2018


project1.jpgproject2.jpg














16 Oct 2018

The annual Innovation Programme (IvP) is open to Primary 5 and Secondary 2 and 3 students from schools that emphasise innovation in the areas of science and technology. This year, Maris Stella High School was for the first time invited to participate in the IvP. The theme this year is “Innovation for a Better World”, a world where Sustainable Living and Inclusive Societies represent the goals of every nation state. Realising these goals challenged our four Secondary 2 Teams to think outside the box in order to devise simple yet innovative solutions to everyday problems. Since February, the students engaged in planning and designing prototypes of products that could solve such problems. One of our teams, comprising Dylan Chia (2H), Adima Emmanuel (2H) and Christopher Koh (2I), devised an innovative solution to the problem of maximising the capacity of trashcans. Their prototype was selected to be featured at the 2018 Young Innovators Fair, held at the Republic Poly. We are very proud of the long and arduous journey the team members have taken and are certain they are now more adept at thinking outside the box, and thus are better prepared and able to be of service to their country and humankind in general. Congratulations, gentlemen, on a job well done!

Blessing in Harmony: NCC Values-In-Action Project

The Secondary 1 NCC (Sea) Barracudas cadets gathered at the Al-Islah Mosque in the early morning hours of 22 September 2018 to prepare for a Values In Action (VIA) project entitled Blessing in Harmony. The Barracudas partnered with the mosque and other organizations, including DBS and the Sengkang Healthcare Group, to make this project a success. Their efforts succeeded in attracting 250 volunteers from various religious and non-profit groups. Together, they distributed food baskets containing groceries and household items to more than 600 households in Punggol. The recipients included needy residents living in a block of rental flats nearby and beneficiaries of ComCare. DPM Teo Chee Hean graced the event and even took the time to talk to the cadets, offering insights regarding the VIA in which they were involved. The day ended with the cadets receiving a short tour of the mosque and an explanation of Islam as a religion. Throughout this short but simple sharing session, the cadets had the opportunity to ask questions about a culture that few, if any, were familiar with. All in all, the Barracudas had a wonderful learning experience and came to appreciate not just what they have but how they can further contribute to society in a way that is consistent with the NCC motto: Serve with Pride and Dedication. #NCC #maristvalues

6 September 2018

“A journey like never before.” That pretty much sums up the fairytale journey  our softball team has just completed. In the recent  National Softball C-Division Championship series, our boys showed their grit by chalking up outstanding performances to qualify for the semifinals with one of the best records in the preliminary rounds, winning 5 games and losing one. In the semifinals, we fell to a much stronger Catholic High team after a hard fought battle, narrowly losing 1-0. Catholic High went on to win the tournament while had to settle for 4th place. Despite not having a home field to train on, our boys performed magnificently, refusing to allow anything to stop them from pursuing their goals. They worked very hard and have proven that where there’s a will, there’s a way. 

The team’s success would not have been possible but for the inspiration and training provided by coach. Kwah Eng Hock. Under his guidance, the team will continue to work hard and win more glory for our school!

Student leader development course 2018



The Student Leadership Committee organised the Student Leader Development Course over two weeks in August with the aim of developing our Secondary three student councillors, House EXCO members and CCA leaders into confident and effective leaders of faith, vision and service.

Part 1 of the course was held on 18 August, where the leaders underwent a full-day workshop on the five practices of exemplary leadership as a leadership model for them to practice and achieve their leadership best. Over the past weekend, our leaders attended part two of the course, which consisted of a 2D1N camp in school.

The camp started with a leadership seminar where Colonel Edwin Goh, Commander Officer Cadet School, SAF, shared candidly with our leaders an account of his leadership journey. As an ex-Marist, he also spoke of how his leadership opportunities in school had prepared him for his leadership roles in the SAF. At the end of the session, COL Edwin fielded questions and it was evident that our leaders had learned a great deal from his experiences.

The remainder of the camp saw the leaders working tirelessly as one to overcome the many leadership challenges presented to them. One such challenge involved a hike to Marina Barrage and they were then given a limited amount of time and resources to build and fly a kite. The purpose of the exercise lay in putting into practice what had been learnt during the course.

The Student Leadership Committee is confident that our Secondary three student leaders will remember what they have learned and will reflect on their leadership styles and, more importantly, understand that leadership is ultimately about service to others. #SLDC2018 #studentleadership #勤勉忠

SCIENCE BUSKING FESTIVAL 2018


sci2.pngscience2.png













1 September 2018

For students at the primary to tertiary level, the Science Busking Festival  provides a platform for presenting science concepts in a “show and tell” manner. To “busk” their science experiments  before the public, they must have the ability to communicate effectively.

Of the 202 teams that auditioned last May for the Science Busking Festival, only 50 were selected for the Finals. Among the finalists was Team Sub-Zero from Maris Stella High School, consisting  of Alastair Teo (2G), Howell Tay (2C) and Gabriel Loh (2C). The team impressed the judges with a lively demonstration of their experiment, entitled “Cloud in a Bottle”.

The first step in the experiment involved pouring a few drops of alcohol into a plastic bottle and then increasing the internal pressure using an air pump. This causes the alcohol to evaporate. The pressure is then released all at once, causing the alcohol vapour to condense into a fine mist resembling a “cloud”.

The finals for the Science Busking Festival were held at Plaza Singapura on August 31st and September 1st. Many of the teams wore brightly coloured costumes, and  numerous booths were elaborately decorated. Team Sub-Zero succeeded in attracting a large crowd owing to its friendly demeanour and lively interactions with the public.

53RD National Day CELEBRATIONS

2bf93bca-a483-4620-8c8e-228e5fd2e8b2.jpg7b3b8a4e-e68a-4cd6-bbef-1271eeb0420d.jpg










8 August 2018

The school celebrated the 53rd National Day on Wednesday August 8th. The celebration began with an assembly of students, staff and parents in the Primary school grandstand. National Day Observance ceremonies provide an opportunity for both the primary and secondary sections to come together as one body. Accompanied by the award-winning Maris Stella Symphonic Band, the school sang the National Anthem, then listened attentively as our Principal, Mrs. Woo, delivered the National Day address prepared by the Minister of Education. Standing smartly at attention were representatives of the various uniformed groups: Scouts (10th consecutive Frank Cooper Sands Award, National Police Cadet Corps (19 consecutive Gold Awards), National Cadet  Corps (Sea)  (16 consecutive Gold Awards) and the St. John’s Brigade (13 consecutive Gold Awards). These groups then marched past the assembly to the accompaniment of the Symphonic Band’s rendition of ‘We are Singapore’. The crowd applauded as the various contingents marched by in perfect order. The parade ground soon filled with the sounds of festival drums as the primary and secondary section boys took the stage. This was followed by an acrobatic display of considerable grace by the Wushu team and a precision drill by the NCC Sea. The final event of the day showcased the school’s Taekwondo team in a dazzling display of martial arts that was enthusiastically received.
The second segment of the national day observance ceremony, which was reserved for the secondary section, began with two former Marists, LTA Benjamin Png Hao Ze and LTA Ho Hol Yin, recounting their National Service experiences in the army and navy, respectively. Our Marists learned of the importance of national defence and how best to prepare themselves for future  national service. The day ended on a jubilant note. But most important of all, we came to realise how fortunate we are owing to the peace and tranquillity we enjoy as citizens of this country—good cause to reaffirm our commitment to Singapore. As the watchword for the 53rd National Day goes, “We are Singapore!”

60TH ANNIVERSARY DINNER


DINNER1.jpgDINNER2.jpg












28 July 2018

July 28th was a night to remember as Marists young and old celebrated the school’s 60th anniversary at a gala dinner held at the Ritz Carlton Millenia hotel. In attendance were former students, staff, past and present, school board members, members of the Catholic church, parents, well-wishers and many who have supported the school all these years. This grand convocation was the culmination of a yearlong series of events celebrating the school’s illustrious history. The guest of honour, Mr. Ong Ye Kung, Minister for Education and a former Marist, together with his cabinet colleague Dr. Poh-Koon Koh, Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry, also an ex-Marist, reveled in the opportunity to relive with old classmates and teachers the good old days when they were students at the school. For others, the evening provided the opportunity to thank the school for molding them into true gentlemen.


Through the medium of videos screened during the course of the evening, old boys spoke fondly of their school years, reminiscing cheekily about the Columbariums adjacent the school, the many happy moments passed camping on Coney Island, the daunting challenge of learning English, and so much more— all wonderful and heartfelt stories that spoke to the spirit of resilience and determination that are the hallmark of a Marist education. The evening also witnessed a standing ovation given to the class of 1958, the first cohort of students admitted to Primary 1 the year the school opened. Other highlights included custom-designed mementoes, 60th Anniversary cupcakes, and a 60th Anniversary theme song specially composed and arranged by Mr. Jeremy Joel Fernandez and Mr. Yanhong Li, both teachers at the secondary section, and performed by former Marist Mr. Cavin Soh -苏梽诚. Perhaps the most poignant moment of the evening arrived when emcee Justin Dominic Misson, also a former Marist, invited the alumni to join him in a rendition of the song 《朋友》. The night ended with a cake cutting ceremony presided over by the school principal Mrs. Woo Soo Min, who was joined on stage by Mr. David Low, President of the school alumni, Dato Low, Chairman of the School Management Committee, and Brother Robert Teoh, Provincial Superior of the Marist Brothers, East Asia Province.


It was a night to be remembered, as Marists of all ages came together as a community to celebrate and rejoice in the school’s remarkable achievements. But what made it especially memorable, however, is the realization that the dream of Brother Chanel Soon, the school’s founder and first principal, lives on in the hearts of all Marists. And on such a night as this we hope to continue the good work of inspiring future generation of Marists to become gentlemen of faith, vision and service.

Those in attendance, including our Principal, Vice Principals and teachers expressed their heartiest congratulations to the contingent as it receives the Corp Achievement Award (Gold). This is the 14th consecutive year that the corp is receiving this award. The corp appreciates all the hard work put in by the cadets and Teacher Officers as well as the support of all the teachers and school leaders. Congratulations to all St John Brigade personnel!

年中考试后,中三的学生到了茶渊学习茶道。茶渊是本地最古老的一间传统茶馆,至今已经营了29年。位于丹戎巴葛的茶渊,环境清幽,设计高雅,是闹市中的另一片天堂。除了认识茶历史文化和传统茶具的名称与作用,同学们也有机会亲手泡制茶叶和品茗三种不同的茶叶,其中包括了英国女王伊丽莎白二世曾到这儿品过的上等乌龙茶——御用黄金桂。

传统的泡茶过程虽然较为繁琐,却另有一番风味,让人变得耐心、细心、专心、静心。希望同学们在茶香四溢的传统茶馆里品茶,不仅能陶冶性情,也能够欣赏与感受到这古老、神奇、美丽的茶文化。

18 May 2018

On May 18th students from the Marist Robotics and Programming Club, accompanied by their teachers, volunteered to help the Al-Islah mosque staff prepare for ‘iftar’ – the breaking of the fast during the month of Ramadhan. During iftar, Al-Islah, along with other mosques in Singapore, provide the community free food. Our students received a warm welcome and then settled back to listen as the mosque leaders explained the significance of Ramadhan and how fasting is practiced by Singapore’s Muslim community. They also assisted in cleaning the dining areas, heaping food onto ‘dulangs’ (large Malay eating trays) and laying them out on the floor. At 7:11pm , or the time for ‘maghrib’ (after sunset) - the breaking of fast, the students were treated to a sumptuous dinner of ‘bubor daging’ (meat porridge), briyani rice and dates. For many it was an evening well spent serving the community and learning more about the Islamic faith. Lucius Ngee of Sec 3I, one of the participants in this community project, agreed.

“As Maris Stella is an SAP School, our student body is predominantly Catholic. Furthermore, as a Christian myself, I have few opportunities to mingle with Muslims. For this reason I know nothing about the Muslim religion. However, after helping out, I came to better understand its beliefs and practices. This will help me better understand the complexities of Singapore.”

These kinds of learning experiences are intended to help our students learn the customs and traditions of the different races and religions in our country. This allows them to reflect on, and better understand Singapore’s success in building a harmonious nation with a rich diversity of cultures and heritage.

This project also reinforces the Marist value of “Presence”. Our students will come to appreciate, respect and care more about their fellow Muslim citizens as they learn more about Islam.

Archery wins 8th consecutive national champions


19th April 2018

Archery is never just about shooting arrows at targets; it also teaches us to learn from our mistakes, to persevere, and through practice and hard work, excel. The Marist Archery Club is a fraternity where where ‘old boys’ attend competitions and lend the team their support. This reinforces the sense of family spirit so highly valued among Marists. Moreover, the school is justifiably proud of the club’s achievements in the 8th National Inter-School ‘B’ Division Championships held in March of this year. For the 8th consecutive year, our B Division archers emerged as the Overall Champions. Individual results are as follows:

1st Individual Placing (Compound) Ong Jay Tong 4C
6th Individual Placing (Compound) Damien Foo Xu Xian 3A
3rd Individual Placing (Recurve) Aldric Lee Ruibin 4J
4th Individual Placing (Recurve) Lim Wei Bin 4D
6th Individual Placing (Recurve) Goh Jie Wen Gerard 4H
8th Individual Placing (Recurve) Marcus Lim 3F
2nd Team Placing (Compound) Ong Jay Tong 4C, Damien Foo Xu Xian 3A, Bradley Kwauk Tak You 3F

1st Team Placing (Recurve) Aldric Lee Ruibin 4J, Lim Wei Bin 4D, Marcus Lim 4H

Special commendation goes to Caleb Lee 3B, Kenan Chin [3E] and Dominic Toh 3F, who, while failing to clinch medals, fought hard and advanced to round 2 of the competition, finishing in the Top 16.

In the 30m Standard Category, Joseph Lee [4J] and Francis Goon [3B] finished 5th and 7th, respectively.

In the words of team captain Gerard Goh, “The archers have trained hard for this competition and I’m glad we achieved our goal. The experience is one I will never forget.”

We are proud of all that the Archery Club has achieved. Well done gentlemen!

sports day 2018


sd1.jpgsd2.jpg










18th April 2018

Serangoon stadium was a shimmering sea of blue, yellow, green and red as the Marist athletes took to the field to compete on their annual sports day. It was a day that would see both our primary (Pri 4, 5 and 6) and secondary school sections come together as one family to celebrate a healthy life-style by engaging in sporting activities. The athletes representing the Alfano (Green) , Chanel (Blue), Champagnat (Red), and Francois (Yellow) houses had trained hard and were thoroughly prepared to compete. Earlier that morning, the spectators had witnessed a dramatic 100-metre relay, in addition to a second relay event in which students and teachers competed in mixed teams, followed by sundry games such as captains ball, football and obstacle courses.

It proved to be an exciting day, with House captains urging on their teams and beating on metal drums to the cheers of their houses—all aimed at promoting house unity and spirit and urging the athletes to give their best. Above all, the house spirit was palpable, as competitors strove to excel and the audience cheered them on. This event clearly revealed what we Marists value most, ‘Presence’ and ‘Family Spirit’, as well as the team spirit of working together and having fun while doing so.

Sec 3 Outward bound school (OBS) camp 2018


obs1.png






















11 April 2018

School is one big adventure

Since 1967, Outward Bound Singapore (OBS) has been nurturing rugged, resilient and confident youths, preparing them to boldly face the challenges of the future and take our nation forward in the next lap. More than 500,000 successive generations have gone through a life-changing OBS experience, learning how to live the OBS motto: “To serve, to strive and not to yield”.
Our Secondary 3 Marists had the experience of a lifetime when they embarked on this challenge. Activities such as navigating the high elements and team challenges forge and strengthen brotherhood amongst Marists. They also stretch Marists physically and mentally, leading to personal growth. When asked about his personal growth, Isaac Tan Jia Ler of Sec 3A shared that although he was tired and uncomfortable most of the time, he found new strengths within as he pressed on to complete the arduous land and sea expeditions which his team organised without any help from the instructors.

“Kayaking around for 12km under the blazing sun was no mean feat, but being one with my team was enough to get us through the sea expedition.” He added, “Trekking with 20-kg bags was not easy, but the team spirit that resonated within each of us motivated us to push through and complete our land expedition”.

Perhaps the gem of learning that Issac took away with him was, when he discovered that growth takes place when he was being thrown into a group of twelve other people who he had never met before in an unfamiliar environment. Through all the arduous physical and mental challenges, he discovered who he truly was and is capable of becoming. To that end, Isaac feels that anyone who is contemplating of taking part in the OBS challenge should not hesitate. Instead, students should go for it as they will never regret the experiences gleaned from this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

2018国际友谊日


IFD 1.JPGIFD2.JPG












4月9日

海星学子们在4月9日迎来了国际友谊日(International Friendship Day)。与往年不同的是,今年活动更注重小组讨论,班上不同小组同学根据所分配的话题进行思考与辩论,再将小组讨论之后的意见进行整合,并以口头报告、短剧或新闻报道等形式呈献,使活动学习变得生动有趣。同学们不仅对所讨论的话题有进一步的了解,对国际友谊日也有了更深入的认识。尤其是在现今全球化时代里,身为文化贸易往来枢纽的新加坡,必然向世界各国伸出友谊之手,进行深入、广泛的文化交流,同时也帮助为国家发展做出贡献的外来人才融入我国社会。

National Schools Games Wushu Championships 2018




4 April 2018

Wushu is a sport that requires intense concentration, precision and physical strength. On the 28th of March, our school participated in the National Schools Games Wushu Championships 2018 held at Chung Cheng High School (Main). This event is marked by fierce competition among the nation’s top secondary school athletes. In the 1st international Nanquan event held on Day 1, our athletes showed significant improvement over the last time they competed. The highlight of this event took place on Day 2, when Angus Quek of 3G scored 8.65 points in the 2nd International Changquan event, a mere 0.01 points away from a first place finish. We are proud of Angus’ 2nd place finish as well as the team’s performance in this competition. All the athletes have demonstrated the Marist values of 'Presence' and 'Love of Work'. We wish the team every future success. We will keep you updated as the team compete in the upcoming events. (the video above features our athletes in action)

agape meal 2018


am1.jpgam2.jpg













am3.jpgam4.jpg













29 March 2018

Our Sec 4 Marists assembled today for an Agape meal. The term ‘Agape’ is derived from the Greek word for ‘self-giving’, and the meal is a reminder of how Jesus shared his last meal, the Last Supper, with his disciples.

A Marist tradition since 2010, this exercise in cohort bonding is meant to symbolize the familial ties that connect all who are part of the Marist family. As is the case with any family, having a meal together and serving one another manifests the love that binds us. Today, Marist juniors and their teachers helped to serve the Sec 4 students. We trust that the blessings bestowed upon this gathering will 
strengthen us as a family and fortify our Sec 4 seniors in both their hearts and minds.

Maundy thursday 2018


mt2.jpgmt1.jpg














mt4.jpgmt3.jpg














29 March 2018

In keeping with our Marist tradition, we observed Maundy Thursday with a washing of feet ritual. 

According to the Gospel, Jesus performed a final act of service for his Disciples, following the Passover meal. Arising from the table, He tied a towel about His waist and filled a basin with water. Then, one after another He washed the feet of each disciple, except Judas, who had already departed to betray Him. After washing the Disciples' feet, Jesus explained what He did and why. "You should wash one another's 
feet," He told them. "I have set an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them." (John 13:1-17)

In the spirit of Lent, and in remembrance of Christ teachings, our Principal kicked off this solemn and meaningful practice, followed by our teachers and students. This symbolic washing of feet stresses on the equality of our humanity and the belief that nobody is above the other. As Marists, we often remind ourselves of the ties that bind us as a Marist family and this morning observance makes us reflect and appreciate one another better.

Personal growth takes place when one steps out of his comfort zone. Here a series of carefully planned outdoor activities like kayaking, flying fox, caving, and abseiling is meant to test our Sec 2 Marists, physically and mentally. Kudos to our boys for taking on these challenges in their stride. As a cohort, you truly exemplify one of our school values - presence. Well done, gentlemen. Achievement Unlocked! @ Changi Coast Adventure Centre.

12 of our students, from Sec 1 to 4, attended the Singapore Model Cabinet (SMC) 2018 Conference, from Wednesday, 14 March 2018 to Friday, 16 March 2018 held at Victoria Junior College (VJC). Organised by VJC in conjunction with the Marine Parade Leadership Foundation (MPLF), the SMC Conference aims to stimulate interest among youth in the current affairs of our nation. The participants assumed the roles of various cabinet ministers and representatives of statutory boards. They discussed and crafted policies addressing current problems confronting Singapore. Throughout the conference, the students were provided opportunities to interact with the real-life policy-makers. This year, our students had the privilege to have Mr. Tan Chuan-Jin, the Parliamentary Speaker during the course of a dialogue session. This gave them greater insight into how decision making is conducted at the highest political level.

Geography  field work 2018

17 March 2018

The Geography team spent two days helping Sec 3 students conduct coastal fieldwork at the East Coast Park. By learning outside the classroom, the students were able to better understand coastal dynamics and how other natural phenomena and human activities affect coastlines. They were also provided the opportunity to apply the skills they have learned in the classroom to observing and measuring natural phenomena, recording data, and testing hypotheses using real world data. Prior to the field trip the students were briefed by the Geography teachers on the proper techniques for recording data. The two days spent in the early part of the March break, helping the students conduct fieldwork and test hypotheses were well spent!

今年的农历新春庆祝会刚好是全民防卫日,华文部门与国民教育委员会联手炮制了一部短剧,不仅让全校师生追忆战争年代的艰苦岁月,也借此激励大家要居安思危,保卫家园,并坚信自己能为国家创造更美好的未来。而老师与学生的节令鼓表演、武术、学生军步操、华乐演奏、相声及大拜年更是把新春的气氛推向高潮,身穿红装的师生也将礼堂染成一片红海,让大家在新的一年里敞开胸怀,迎接新挑战! 整齐划一的军步操、刚健勇猛的武术、澎湃人心的节令鼓、喜气洋洋的华乐、逗趣说笑的相声充分体现了海星学子们为筹备这次庆祝会的勤勉忠勇,而齐声献唱的大拜年更是展现了一家精神,提醒大家团结就是力量. [Eng] We came all togged out in red to usher in the Year of the Dog. This year, we also marked Total Defence Day during our celebration with a skit that reminded us of the Japanese Occupation, so that we will remain vigilant and not take what we have for granted. Then, in a first-of-its-kind collaboration, a few teachers joined the Festive Drummers to kick the celebration into high gear. The NCC cadets followed with a thrilling freestyle drill while the Cross-Talk performance had us in stitches. The final singalong featuring teachers and students got the sea of red on its feet for a rousing finale.

Branson ong receives scdf award 

23 January, 2018

It was just another day for 12-year-old Branson Ong. He was on his way home with his friends when they saw many people crowding round a car. A nine-year-old boy was trapped under the car. Branson, his friends and members of the public quickly jumped into action. They lifted the car and freed the injured boy. For their civic mindedness, they were awarded the Community Lifesaver Award by the Singapore Defence Force (SCDF). In his interview with Channel Newsasia, he said "At that time I didn't know I'd get an award. I just went forward to help without expecting much." We at Maris Stella High School are proud of Branson's selfless act which clearly demonstrates the Marist value of presence and in lending a hand to those in need without expecting much. Well done, Branson! #heroesaremadenotborn
