The parent support group (PSG) was set up for parents to work in partnership with the school to achieve the school’s vision, mission and goals.
A Voice for Parents
PSG allow parents to opt for greater involvement in the school and provides a channel for parents to raise issues and concerns, seek clarification or decisions and resolve problems.
Network of Support
PSG creates a network of links for the school, its families and the community. Members come from diverse backgrounds and possess varied skills and experiences.
Why join PSG
Besides working with the school to provide a holistic education for our children, PSG members can also look forward to workshop and activities arranged especially for them and families. They will also be able to network with other parents and make new friends.
