Schools in Our Neighbourhood

The Sengkang Student Care Centre is located at the void deck of Blk 306C, Anchorvale Link since 2001.  We serve the families of this neighbourhood, whose children attend nearby schools eg Anchor Green Primary and Nan Chiau  Primary. We also have students who come from Punggol Primary, Fernvale Primary and Sengkang Primary.

Looking after your children

We provide a safe and congenial “home” environment for children while their parents are at work. Our teachers place high priority in guiding the children to complete their school homework through disciplined supervised study time. After completing their school work, the children are given assessment workbooks or practice worksheets for more practice which is closely monitored by the centre’s teachers.

The centre also conducts character building programmes which focus on family, school and friends issues. Character building lessons lay the foundation for development of responsible & self-reliant students. The programme develops positive social & emotional skills which the child can hone as they grow into useful young adults.

There are children who may face learning difficulties or display behavioural challenges. Our teachers will usually work with their parents and help them overcome their difficulties.

Holiday Activity Highlights

During the holidays, students are also given Science, Math or even English projects. These projects are designed to make learning fun and meaningful.  An example of one such project is the lesson on “Aerodynamics”. This is a difficult lesson and has very difficult concepts but at the end of the project, children are able to grasp a better understanding of the forces acting on the flying aircraft. sklsc_pic4

The 2009 Pulau Ubin camp and FLL (First Lego League) competition  provided the physical challenges for the students, abound with ample learning opportunities. The children learnt to work & cycle as a team around the entire island.  They had to prepare their own meals and make their  own beds; something that they did not have the opportunity to perform at home..

Our Volunteers & Sponsors

Our student care centre is privileged to have many committed volunteers who consistently provide assistance in many areas. Candice Khoo and Stella Yap have been very faithful in providing free tuition in Sengkang LSC since last year. The free tuition is to cater for less academically inclined students from low income families. sklsc_pic7
