CHIJ Saint Joseph's Convent
is an all-girls Catholic secondary school
. The school is one of 11 Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus
(CHIJ) schools in Singapore.
The school was founded in 1938, as a private school in a rented house at Flower Road. Initially there were 21 pupils and three staff – comprising one nun
from the Order of the Holy Infant Jesus and two teachers. Prior to World War II
, the enrolment rose to 79 students.
After the war, the school reopened in 1945 in a bungalow lent to the school by a neighbour. New school buildings were erected at the original site in 1947, and at Highland Road in the 1950s.
The school taught both primary
and secondary students until 1984. The school's primary classes were then moved out to form two new schools – CHIJ Ponggol (later renamed CHIJ Our Lady of the Nativity) and CHIJ Our Lady of Good Counsel.
CHIJ St Joseph's Convent moved to a new campus in Sengkang in 2000.
