Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Jan 2023, 11:59 PM

Meet Sr Enrica Perego, who is celebrating her 70th Anniversary as a Canossian Sister. She is the former principal of Magdalene's Kindergarten (now known as Canossaville Preschool) in the 1970s.

Sr Enrica has a great love for the children. Before the pandemic, she would sit by the gate every morning welcoming the children with a loving smile and a warm embrace as the little ones arrived in school. The opportunities to meet and love others gave her the greatest satisfaction.

As Principal of Magdalene's Kindergarten, Sr Enrica crafted a curriculum to cultivate lifelong values in the children from a young age. As an educator, she incorporated charity and humility, the core values of St Magdalene, our Foundress, into the classroom. These are values that will mould and form the hearts of the young to love and to serve.

Like St Magdalene, we know that we must change with signs of the times. As Canossaville continues to strengthen our support for the children and their families under our care, our needs have greatly evolved.

Canossaville wants to honour Sr Enrica's 70 years of love and passion for the little ones by appealing for your support for Canossaville Children and Community Services. Funds raised will go towards ensuring that our children continue to receive a holistic well-rounded education and also prepare them for the changing digital landscape.

Thank you for celebrating Sr Enrica's 70 years of unconditional love for all the children at Canossaville.

About Campaign

Technology plays a huge part in empowering all our children especially those with severe to profound hearing loss.

Children with hearing loss need more intense and intentional literacy instruction from the early years and throughout their development pathways for literacy acquisition.

Through iPad applications such as Proloquo2Go, our students who have difficulties with speech can finally find a voice to easily and more confidently communicate with others, especially with their families.

Other digital devices such as interactive smartboards allow our teachers to engage students especially those with hearing loss and other learning difficulties, more effectively and efficiently during lessons. It creates opportunities for students to practice collaboration and fosters closer interaction with the lesson materials. Multimedia content are also especially effective at keeping students engaged during class.

In response to our recurring needs in this area, the Canossaville Digital Fund is designated towards the purchase of digital equipment such as interactive smartboards and iPads, and their accompanying accessories and applications. Specific for our children with hearing loss, the fund will also be used for audio and equipment needs that support assessment and intervention.

Thanks to the support of Tote Board's enhanced fund-raising programme, all donations to this fund, will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

Grant our children the gift of communication today!
