St. Joseph’s Institution (SJI) has opened a new heritage gallery, in commemoration of Singapore's bicentennial year and the Tercentenary1 of the Founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools – St. John Baptist de La Salle. Named Missio 1852, the gallery showcases 167 years of Josephian history and Lasallian heritage, tradition and community in Singapore. This project is supported by the National Heritage Board and the Singapore Bicentennial Office.
Founded by the De La Salle Brothers in 1852, St. Joseph’s Institution (SJI) is an independent Catholic school, whose mission is to nurture students to learn how to learn and to learn how to live, so that they can be empowered to grow into men and women of integrity and men and women for others. For over 167 years, SJI has nurtured thousands of men and women who have served the society locally and globally. Missio 1852 celebrates the contributions and achievements of the school and of these alumni who have served the society in different ways throughout the century.
The highlights of Missio 1852 include:
Profiles of distinguished Josephians – Thousands of illustrious Josephians have graduated from the gates and halls of SJI since 1852. Amongst them include Former 7th President Dr Tony Tan Keng Yam, DPM Teo Chee Hean, Mr Philip Yeo, Prof Leo Tan Wee Hin, Prof Jeremy Monteiro, Justice Chan Seng Onn, whose profiles are featured in Missio 1852.
The Brothers’ Logbook – The La Salle Brothers meticulously kept annual logbooks such as these, detailing notable events like inter-school competitions, important visitors to the school, spiritual bouquets and civics group meetings. It was the practice for the Brother Director to keep a diary/logbook to record key events throughout the school year, to help him when he prepares the annual report to be sent to Rome.
The Founder’s Banner – As part of the school’s emphasis on rituals and symbolism, this Founder’s banner was frequently used in events like the celebration of the apparition ofour Lady of Fatimah in the 1950s. Out of the traditional three banners used, only this one remains. These banners were originally stored away in a camphor wood chest in the Brothers’ Quarters.
The Grandfather Clock that has survived the Japanese Occupation – This clock once stood on the verandah of the Brothers' House and called all therein to prayers and class. During WWII, shrapnel damaged the clock and the marks have been preserved in its restoration. Holes on both sides indicated where shrapnel entered the clock, hit the back of the pendulum and exited on the opposite side.
Missio 1852 is open to SJI students and staff members during school hours during term time. Visit www.sji.edu.sg for details.
Cathay Organisation has unveiled a new space designed to reinvigorate the coworking scene in Singapore. Situated in the vibrant Robertson Quay neighbourhood, in close proximity to the Central Business District and surrounded by a host of fitness and lifestyle establishments, Gather aims to create a community of like-minded individuals and bring renewed inspiration to their work. As well as being conducive to a focused and productive work day, the pet-friendly space prioritises the wellbeing of their members through a unique and engaging programme of lifestyle offerings.
Designed by Takenouchi Webb – the name behind a slew of establishments across the city, including The Straits Clan, Esora, and The Tippling Club – Gather is warm, bright and inviting. The design brief for GATHER was to create a softer workplace; this was achieved through opening up the space and maximising ceiling heights and natural light, using full-length windows to allow natural light to shine in and welcome the surrounding greenery.
The colour palette uses a selection of earthy pinks, whites, and light wood colours to complement the use of natural marbles and stronger terrazzo tones to create a relaxed atmosphere which differentiates it from other coworking options in the city. Whilst the design of the workspaces was kept relatively simple, a heavier focus was placed on the key communal areas, where more impactful materials were used, with brass elements punctuating the social setting.
A coworking space designed with the modern- day business in mind, Gather offers a host of workplace options, from fully-furnished offices to bespoke suites and event spaces, workshops, sessions and activities.
A total of 12 offices range in occupancy from 6 to 40 people. On level 3, all spaces are fully furnished, with private offices suitable for up to 8 people. On levels 4 and 5, bespoke options offer freedom and flexibility for individuals to customise their own office space and layout, whilst still benefitting from the various perks of a Gather membership. Larger office spaces on these floors are able to accommodate businesses of up to 40 employees.
Situated on the outskirts of the iconic Orchard Road shopping district and easily accessible from the Central Business District, Robertson Quay makes for a more relaxed office location; the urbanised area is home to an eclectic mix of restaurants and cafes, with al fresco dining options aplenty and a focus on community and neighbourhood. Holding the wellbeing of their members in high regard, Gather has partnered with several establishments in and around Robertson Quay, offering exclusive benefits for members with Orange Theory Fitness, Absolute You and F45, amongst others. The new coworking space will also play host to regular networking and community-based events, offering members the opportunity to expand their network, learn new skills, and embrace a more social work life.

US tech giant Google's Singapore office which serves as its Asia-Pacific headquarters, is now at Mapletree Business City (Pasir Panjang).
Google opened their first Singapore office in 2007, a tiny space along Collyer Quay occupied by just 24 people. Since then, Asia’s grown, Singapore’s grown and they've grown in Singapore. They now need room for 1,000 Googlers working on new products and projects across Asia for our users, customers and partners. And they also want more room for the community around them —the kind of place that’s useful for gatherings of developers, students, founders, and kids to connect with Googlers and, sometimes, even prime ministers and ministers of trade.
Google has also announced that they’re bringing Code in the Community to 3,000 young Singaporeans from less well-to-do backgrounds. It’s a multi-year, multi-level computer science and computational thinking course to get even more Singaporean kids excited about the potential of technology. They're partnering with Singapore’s four ethnic Self-Help Groups—the Chinese Development Assistance Council, Singapore Indian Development Association, The Eurasian Association and Yayasan Mendaki—to hold weekend classes for kids aged 8 to 15, with an equal mix of boys and girls. The program, which starts in early 2017, will be run by 21C Girls and Saturday Kids at four Community Centers around the island for three years. Google’s support for Code in the Community is made possible through their Data Center Community Grants and RISE Awards programs.
