The Principal Speaks 2018
Our theme for 2018 is Hope Alive. Our vibrant gardens, science trail, festival court and conducive new facilities such as the design studio complement our other initiatives planned by our teachers and supported by the Canossian Sisters, alumni and parents to make our 2018 theme, “Hope Alive”, both meaningful and engaging for the Canossian community.
We believe that a love for reading is important. Reading widens our horizons and provides fresh perspectives and insights. Reading also helps us in our language development. But most important of all, reading is one of the most worthwhile life-long hobbies because it serves our needs in the different seasons of our lives. The different genres – fiction, biographies, information texts, motivational texts etc all aim to inspire and enrich us in different ways and dimensions. And books and reading materials are so easily accessible in Singapore through our community libraries.
Our SACSS library is well-stocked with good books and other interesting reading materials. The school has instituted reading sessions on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7.40am to 7.55am. SACSS is committed to develop a sustained and robust reading culture. We hope that a reading culture will encourage our students to share their perspectives and personal encounters through writing. As such, we will be launching an e-book platform in March to facilitate students’ exchanges of ideas.
The SACSS Night Festival on 13 April will see many small groups of students showing off their diverse talents in the different parts of the school, including the Chapel. Our Canossian Sisters, alumni and parents will also be involved in the event. It will be a night of celebration of good efforts, collaboration and partnerships.
We, at SACSS, look forward to a great year ahead under God’s guidance and blessings.
