JOSEPHIANS OF YESTERYEAR WEBSITE:
(Home sweet Home)
A picture to take your breath away - the old St. Joseph's Institution as it appeared in all its splendour at Bras Basah Road and the school field in the foreground. Remember the great days of yesteryear?
You have entered the Web Site of Josephians of Yesteryear* - dedicated to bringing joy and nostalgia to all Josephians from St. Joseph's Institution at Bras Basah Road, Singapore (and maybe to our sisters from CHIJ "across the street" too?).
Hope you enjoy the site and we would like to hear from everyone.
* [Class of ‘64: those who graduated from Secondary IV in 1964, and include classmates who studied in Secondary I in 1961 and Pre-University II in 1966]

All through our College
A voice is resounding
Promptly respond to your duty's sweet call
harken you all for the trumpet is sounding
Your Mater's proclaiming her watchword to all.
Forward her children dear
Ever with heart's sincere
Render with joy to your Mater her due
All that is vile reject,
Heaven will e're protect
Sons of Saint Joseph's
Valiant and true.
Onward and upward
In life's earnest battle
Joyously bearing the brunt of the fight
Nobly forgiving for all that may pain you
And bravely defending the cause of the right.
