For the second year in a row, Josephian Day was held on the last day of the first quarter, that is, Friday, 26 March 2021. This time however, it was done virtually due to the restrictions caused by Covid-19.
The main event was telecast live from 9.00 am until 12.15 pm. There were altogether 8 emcees, namely, 6 current students, an alumnus and a teacher who says she is the oldest Josephian who is still serving in the school. There were recorded videos and performances by students. There was even a meaningful video on the history of the schools named after St Joseph in Kuching with various alumni sharing their nostalgic memories in school.

In addition to that, the blessing of St Joseph’s Private Primary School was carried out by Archbishop Simon Poh that morning and shown to the audience via the telecast.
Online games were held before 26 March and on the day itself. These games were created by the students themselves and they were fun and exciting.
Since the Primary School and International School had students present physically in school, some activities were carried out in the respective schools. For example, games, colouring competitions, etc.
Quite a number of food vendors supported Josephian Day by sponsoring prizes, online food order promotion, etc. The emcees had a busy time mentioning them during the telecast.
This event brought out the many talents of our students, especially in the performances and planning of online games.Ora et Labora – we are proud to be Josephians! •
