The Mother Mathilde award is given to a student who has displayed strong leadership qualities in her own field and when opportunities arise. This award recognises the leadership qualities of the student and commends the student for her initiative, her courage to stand up for what is right and good, and her inspiration to others around her. Over and above the school values, the recipient of this award exemplifies the values of Mother Mathilde, a founding sister of the Infant Jesus school in Singapore, exuding the spirit of generosity by looking for opportunities to serve the school and the community with compassion and love, persevering despite challenges and motivating her peers to share and contribute meaningfully in all aspects of school life.

Sister Deirdre O’ Loan

The Sr Deirdre O’ Loan Award is a special award presented by the IJ Board of Management in honour of Sr Deirdre O’ Loan to carry on her legacy in education and in service of others, as well as her belief in every child and her potential. The award gives recognition to a student whose knowledge, demeanour and behaviour demonstrate respect for the IJ values and the school community. She demonstrates a strong sense of compassion for others by showing deep care and concern for her peers, teachers and school staff. She possesses a love for learning and displays good communication skills. She participates actively to help others in their learning and she reads extensively to widen her knowledge.


Kellock-All-Rounder is a special award that recognises well-rounded students who have excelled in both academic and non-academic spheres. It also aims to encourage students to continue to excel in their studies, develop their strengths and character, and contribute back to society.

Sports Girl of the Year
