St. Francis' Canossian School (嘉諾撒聖方濟各學校; SFCS) was established by the Italian Canossian Daughters of Charity in 1869. The school is now an aided whole-day girls' primary school in Wan Chai, Hong Kong and a feeder primary school of St. Francis' Canossian College. After sharing the school campus on Kennedy Road with the secondary section for many years, in 2008, the school was moved to 44-46 St. Francis' Street and located below the Kennedy Road campus, with a bridge connecting two campuses together.

School Song[edit]

Verse 1:

Do you hear our joyful voices
Ringing sweetly through the skies?
Day by day our heart rejoices
As our thanks to heaven rise.
For our school instructs and leads us
On the way to virtue and love.

Refrain:

Live St. Francis! Live forever
In our minds and in our heart!
Bless our teachers and companions
Be the bond when we depart! (2)

Verse 2:

Here we pray, we work together
For the love of God and men;
Here we study, here we gather
Here we play and here we gain.
And when troubles seem to double
To our school for peace we turn.
(Refrain)

Verse 3:

As the years fly off together
We, too, march on life's hard main,
But St. Francis' will forever
Live in mind and heart again;
To encourage, to uplift us
Till we reach our home above.
(Refrain)
