Testimonials

Kampung Senang Charity & Education Foundation

Teacher Collene is truly an asset to the school , with her patient, nurturing and understanding demeanour around children. Her teaching strategies are interesting, fun and educational ,making our children look forward to school every day, just so that they get to attend her lessons. They have expressed their appreciation and love for her multiple times collectively which is why we are very grateful to have her teach them.

I enjoyed the training. Mr Chan is methodical and clear which help me to understand the process through working on it. As a student who does not understand and functions of the wheelchairs, the lessons conducted really is an eye opener, especially as a senior -really felt really proud of myself. I am thankful.

Kampong Senang (KS), is at the heart of Jurong East (near to Jurong Polyclinic) is a friendly and interesting place for seniors to spend a few hours every day. I go to KS four (4) times a week for their activities (namely Ba Duan Jin, 312 Meridian Exercise and Mindfulness Meditation).  While at the place, I enjoy an affordable vegetarian lunch. The staff is very helpful, and seniors feel comfortable enough to socialise. I would recommend this wonderful place to you.
