THE SJI 170th ANNIVERSARY LENT PROJECT

As part of the school's commemoration of its 170th anniversary as well as its observance of Lent, the school aims to raise the social consciousness of students by encouraging them to share with those who are in need.

A hundred and seventy years ago, because of the goodwill of many people who contributed, St Joseph's Institution was established and thousands have had the benefit of receiving a Lasallian education.

From March to May, each student is invited to secure a monetary pledge from donors to contribute to Canossaville (the chosen beneficiary of this year's giving) in its efforts to support the learning of children who are hearing-impaired. In return, the student will pledge to take part in the SJI Challenge; for every $10 raised, the student will run 1km.

Canossaville is a Catholic social service agency serving both mainstream students, as well as those with hearing loss, giving priority to the poorest and most vulnerable in the community.

Thank you!

Canossaville Children and Community Services (Canossaville) serves children across preschool and primary school ages. We support both neurotypical children and those with hearing loss and multiple disabilities. Regardless of their family circumstances or their conditions, we strive to build an inclusive environment for these children, and ensure that our programmes are accessible to all.

For infants and young children with hearing loss, wearing hearing aids and having cochlear implants is just the beginning of the journey. Children with hearing loss need more intense and intentional intervention with support from trained therapists and teachers.

Your donations can MAKE A DIFFERENCE to our children and their families.
