Annual school holiday event for children from IJHCC
2 Jun 2017
CHIJ Alumni organizes an annual school holiday event for children from IJHCC (Infant Jesus Homes and Children’s centres). This year we are bringing the children on a visit to some of the farms in Kranji countryside. We will be visiting Hay Dairies goat farm and Jurong Frog Farm with lunch at Bollywood Vegetables.
CHIJ Alumni brought kids from IJHCC (Galilee centre) to the Kranji farms. We visited Hay's dairies , Jurong frog farm and had lunch at Bollywood vegetables. We would like to thank our volunteers who came along as well as the many who made this trip possible by their generous donations. Due to confidentiality issues we are unable to post pictures of the children. Thank you and we look forward to your continued support!!

IJ Fiesta 2017
10 Mar 2017
Do come forward and contribute to the success of IJ Fiesta 2017, which will be held on 10 Mar (Fri) 2017, 1030H to 1700H at CHIJ Secondary (Toa Payoh). We welcome volunteers who are keen to take charge of stalls, contribute in kind (e.g. cupcakes), support with funding, etc.
We have invited children from Infant Jesus Homes & Children's Centres (IJHCC) to share the fun and joy in our very own IJ Fiesta on 10 Mar (Fri), 3-5pm at CHIJ Secondary (Toa Payoh) school grounds.
IJHCC provides a safe environment for children from low-income and disadvantaged backgrounds to live, learn and grow. You can help make this a very special day for the children in these 2 ways.
1. Sponsor a child
You can contribute $50 to sponsor one child. As we estimate that 40 children from IJHCC will be coming to IJ Fiesta, do feel free to sponsor more than 1 child if you can. The collected funds will go towards food, games and transport costs for the children.
You may also come forward as volunteers to supervise the children as they explore different food and games stalls at IJ Fiesta.
Your generous donation will impact the lives of children both in IJHCC as well as an IJ student in need of financial assistance as proceeds will go to the school funds. Thank you!
