Canossaville Student Care welcomes students aged 7 to 12 years old and is open to students from all backgrounds. Priority is given to Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents from Canossa Catholic Primary School and Canossian School.
As a Canossian organisation, we recognise the uniqueness of each child and offer a variety of programmes to meet the needs of the individual. Our students learn to “live from within” and move from the heart to love and serve. Above all, the students under our care will be taught the Canossian values of Charity, Humility, Forgiveness, and Faith.
Lunch and Tea
Canossaville Student Care provides well-balanced and nutritional meals for our students. We encourage students to eat the food provided unless they have been excused for religious or health reasons. Our daily lunch and tea menu follows the Health Promotion Board’s recommendations of eating a well-balanced meal with the correct portions for different food groups.
At Canossaville, our enrichment programmes support your child’s learning needs as well as nurture a positive learning attitude. Our programmes include strengthening their Math and literacy foundation as well as we giving them a wide range of experiences beyond the timetabled curriculum. Our enrichment programmes aim to equip our students with the knowledge and skills for independent living in the 21st century – We also have a well equipped kitchen where our children learn basic baking and home economics.
Canossian values of Charity, Humility, Forgiveness, and Faith are reinforced all year round in a practical and fun way through our Canossian Care Curriculum.
Our students are assisted with their homework by Student Care Teachers and Volunteers. Students are provided with support specific to their academic needs as well.
We provide pull-out sessions with our Math and Chinese specialists for students who need assistance in these subjects.
We take on a unique learning approach that encourages children to think out of the box. Our children are given the opportunity to develop artistic knowledge and express themselves through a range of media, forms, and expressions such as acrylic, oil pastels, and watercolour.
Since entering Student Care, there has been an improvement in Brendan’s social skills. It has given him the opportunity to mix and interact with other kids at a level he is not able to at school.
With CSC being in the same “village” as Canossa Catholic Primary School (CCPS), as parents we are assured that our child will be safely handed over from CCPS to Canossaville Student Care. The environment is safe and clean and the teachers are attentive and caring. They have provided constructive feedback to Brendan and this helps him on his learning journey.
Since joining Canossaville Student Care, my child readily volunteers to help with chores at home, like washing the dishes and cleaning the table after meals. She shares with me that she does this at the Student Care too.
I like that there is prayer time for the children as it is a reminder for my child to turn to God. Teachers at Canossaville Student Care are responsible and firm with the children as well as caring towards them. They are also responsive to my feedback. I have also observed that there is some interaction between the different age-groups and that the children are generally happy and cooperative with one another.
CSC actively engages with the other sectors in the village as well as the wider community, providing the students in our care with the opportunity not only to learn from various partner organisations but also to serve the community within their own capacity as well.
