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:
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! #archery
sports day 2018
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
11 April 2018
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. #outwardboundschool

singapore model cabinet 2018 conference at vjc
20 March 2018
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!

2018 chinese new year celebrations
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
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
