Our Campaign Storyends 21 Oct 2022, 11:59 PM
Since 1984, the Children's Day Appeal (CDA) has served as an annual fundraising campaign to rally meaningful support for communities in need by advocating giving amongst the young. Aligned with the Ministry of Education's Values-in-Action Programme, this campaign encourages kindergarten and primary school students to help others and inculcate important values of compassion, respect and empathy from an early age.
In KCPPS, we hope that pupils can demonstrate our school value of 'Amazing Love' by giving to those who are less privileged.
