The B Division archers emerged as Champions in the National Inter-School Archery Championship 2017 for the 7th consecutive year. Archery is never just a sport about shooting arrows; it teaches us to learn from our mistakes and not let it hinder us. Thus it is only through perseverance and sheer hard work that we have been able to attain a high level of performance in the competitions. Archers past and present supported one another throughout the competition and the Marist values of Determination and Family Spirit were evident.

The Sec 3 Bonding Camp aims to develop individual growth in leadership, resilience and respect for self and others through exciting outdoor activities. The learning framework of this camp focuses on cooperation and teamwork, highlighting the theme of ‘Family Spirit’. Fruitful debriefs of the activities were facilitated by the form teachers to link the relevancies of the activities to their school and CCA commitments. Activities like the campfire and outdoor activities were also structured to promote strong bonds between Marists and their form teachers.


The downpour did not dampen their spirits and they supported and encouraged one another to overcome difficult obstacles. Not only were their bonds strengthened after this camp, the Secondary Three students also learned important Marist values like diligence and family spirit.



Two teams of students, together with 58 teams from various schools, participated in the 18th Elementz Science Research Conference and Exhibition on 11 April 2017.

We are proud to announce that Team 1 clinched the Silver award. The team comprises of: 
Julian Chang Zhen Yang (4A),

Both teams have been preparing for this competition since December 2016. They met up with their mentors almost every week at NIE, read up on research papers to obtain background knowledge, and met up regularly in the school's Life Science Lab to prepare for their presentation and poster. Despite facing countless setbacks, they have exhibited commendable perseverance and achieved excellent results!



Congratulations to our 'C' Division team who clinched the 3rd position in the National Table Tennis Championships 2017. The final match was full of heart-stopping action as our key players put on a great display of resilience and fighting spirit. We won eventually, with a final score of 3-2.

Well done, Marists!



On the 10th of March this year, our school held its Annual Cross Country Run at MacRitchie Reservoir. The Annual Cross Country Run allows both students and teachers to be physically active. Students were also able to build strong class spirit as they ran together as a class and with their form teachers.
As all runners were given electronic tags to record their run timings, students were able to represent their houses and contribute to their house's overall timing. Students showed the Marist value of Presence when they looked out for one another’s well being throughout the race. They also showed great resilience as they overcame fatigue and persevered to complete the challenging run.

Through this competition, our players learnt the values of determination and perseverance, especially when facing stronger opponents and overwhelming odds. Humility and sportsmanship were displayed during the matches. They played their best even when facing weaker opponents and gave them due respect and honour.

The heartwarming video featured ex-Marists around the world giving thanks and sending well wishes to their teachers. Not only did it send the important message of having gratitude, it also inspired the current Marists to pursue their dreams as they work hard in school.

In the first week of 2017, we welcomed our Secondary Ones to the Marist Family through the Secondary One Orientation Programme with the theme of ‘Transformation’. This programme aims to help our young Marists adapt to their new school environment and foster new friendships with their new classmates. The highlight of the Secondary One Orientation Programme 2017 was the Campfire Night, where proud parents graced us with their presence. 

The Secondary One Orientation Programme provided many opportunities for our young Marists to display care and concern for one another. Our Marist Values, Presence and Family Spirit, were exhibited throughout the Programme, for example, when the Secondary One students constantly looked out for one another, including their seniors, throughout the camp.
