CHIJ 1 Sunday Times 0

The Sunday Times has apologised to CHIJ for its damaging article on CHIJ students. The paper also said that it retracted its remarks. From TODAYonline:
...the newspaper noted that in its Sept 17 article, "Singapore A-Z … once more, with feeling", that it had "made disparaging remarks" about girls from the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus schools.

"We retract those remarks. No malice or disrespect was intended. We are sorry for the distress caused," said the newspaper...

Today learnt yesterday that the case has been settled "amicably", and that the Infant Jesus Board of Management — which manages the 11 schools — has accepted the newpaper's apology and retraction.
