About Our History
In the 50s, Mrs. Catherine Thomas, a nurse and wife of Mr. Francis Thomas, Principal of St. Andrew's School, found an old man rummaging in her garden looking for some herbs as he was too poor to see the doctor. She helped him and he returned with more friends in need.
With her husband’s agreement, their garage became a small clinic for the poor in Potong Pasir. Mr Thomas founded the School Counselling Services Centre in the 60s as he saw the need for professionals to help students facing difficulties. It is from these simple beginnings that led to the setting up of the Singapore Anglican Welfare Council in 1967. To read more on our history, please click here.
