Sarah*, who is in Primary 3, always looks forward to being in our student care centre after school. "How come?" You might ask. Well, for a start, she always feels like it is her second home while mum's hard at work. She gets the love and care from 'aunties' and 'sisters' as well as yummy home cooked meals. Not to mention the many friends she has at the centre who learn and play together with her.
Like Sarah, many other students from low income or single parent families get the care and guidance they need after school while their parents make ends meet. We strive to keep our fees as low as possible while these students enjoy all the extra enrichment programmes and activities at no additional cost. Your generous contribution goes a long way in giving these children the joy that every child deserves. Thank you.
