The present Canossa Convent Primary School (above) will have a new building in 2015.
Canossa Convent Primary School (CCPS), which is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, is looking forward to a brand new school building in 2015.
CCPS, located on Sallim Road, has been identified by the Ministry of Education to undergo PRIME (Programme for Rebuilding and IMproving Existing schools (PRIME) from January 2013 to Dec 2014.
When completed, the new building will house a Multimedia Resource Library with expanded reading resources.
It will also have a stage where pupils can build up their confidence in public speaking.
Students will enjoy a Multimedia Resource Library and learn public speaking skills.
The indoor sports hall will be enlarged to allow for more learning activities.
A science laboratory will open out to a science garden and allow students to learn about bio-diversity even as they examine specimens under the microscope.
There will also be a dance studio as dance is now a popular co-curricular activity.
The new school will go single-session to allow for a wider range of programmes.
“While the essence of the Canossian values will be the foundation of the education, the improvements to the school building would create more learning spaces and facilities for programmes that would prepare pupils for the 21st century,” says principal Grace Tan.
The present school will move to a holding site in 2013 until the new school building is ready.
Well wishers and ex-Canossians are invited for a dinner to celebrate the school’s 70th anniversary on July 1 at 7 pm in the school grounds. Proceeds go to the School Building Fund.
