Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Aug 2022, 11:59 PM

Meet Jennifer, a Senior Teacher (Chinese Language) in Canossaville Preschool (CPS).

When she first arrived at Magdalene's Kindergarten (Canossaville Preschool's former name) in 2014, she noticed that the Chinese curriculum focused on the memorisation of Chinese idioms and poems. Jennifer felt that this emphasis was not the most appropriate for pre-schoolers and suggested to the school's management to include moral and values education into the classes instead. Today, the Canossian values of Charity, Humility, Forgiveness, and Faith are seamlessly weaved into the curriculum. This emphasis on the character development of our children is what sets CPS apart from other preschools.

For Jennifer, it was crucial for her teachers to truly have a heart for the children, and for everyone to work together in helping the children grow and develop. The Canossian value of Humility resonates the most with her. Only by having the humility to be open to correction can one improve and in turn, be better educators to the children.

Canossaville celebrates our 81st Anniversary this year and we thank all our supporters and donors for your GIFT that impacts the children and their families entrusted in our care.

Canossaville started as an orphanage on 15 August 1941 at Sallim Road, in response to the increasingly urgent need to serve the poor in the Geylang-Aljunied area.

Over the years, the Canossian Sisters and the children endured a war, relocation to Malaysia, expansion, and finally as Canossaville Children and Community Services today. Mother Foundress, St Magdalene, always said that we must change with the sign of the times. As such, Canossaville will continue to grow and strengthen our support for the children, families, and the communities.

The proceeds from this campaign will ensure that we continue to provide our essential programmes and services to our children and families from all races and faiths, persist in providing early intervention support for our children with hearing loss, and grow and expand our assistance to those in need.

Your GIFT today and support for our cause makes a world of difference.

Join us today and be a Never-Ending Gift!

Thank you!
