PSG Mid-Autumn Celebrations 2018


On 21st September 2018, almost 100 enthusiastic families from P1 to P3 gathered at the school canteen to celebrate the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival. For the second consecutive year, children with family members enjoyed the PSG-organized fun hands-on activities and learnt more about the cultural practices associated with the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival. They include moon cake making, lantern making, guessing riddles and Chinese calligraphy.  

This year, to underscore the importance of family relationships, the children kicked off the event by presenting a cup of tea to parents as a mark of respect. In return, the parents gave the children, a folded heart-shaped paper with penned words of encouragement and affirmation. As a keepsake, families posed and sent in photogenic shots of family portraits for “The Most Photogenic Family Contest.” To cap off the memorable family event, a “YOLO” lantern procession, with family members in tow, around the neighbourhood.

Happy Parents' Day 2018


To promote parent-child bonding, our Parent Support Group (PSG) organised a “Happy Parents’ Day” event on 19 May 2018. While the parents were engaged in in the talk, ‘Languages of Love’, organised by FamilyMatters@School, their children were busy preparing a surprise for them - sandwiches (filled with Nutella, margarine, peanut butter and love), which they served personally to their very-impressed and visibly-touched parents.

The families built a terrarium (bottled garden), which they brought home, together with lots of unforgettable memories.

Drag, Aim, Sphero!


On 14 April Saturday, 20 of our students and their Dads participated in our “Drag, Aim, Sphero!” father-child bonding event. They learnt basic block programming skills to programme a spherical robot, called “Sphero”. This FamilyMatters@School event was jointly organized by our Parent Support Group (PSG) Liaison Officer, Ms Lily Goh and our school’s FamilyMatters@School Coordinator, Miss Mak.

As part of the school’s “FAMILY Matters@School for Fathers” programme, we first got an experienced speaker to share important tips with the fathers on how they can be more involved in their child’s life, to take on the role as a good influencer.

Next, we specially arranged with one of our student’s father (with his colleagues as part of their company’s CSR effort) to conduct the programming activity. Our 20 students and their fathers had an amazing time! This “Drag, Aim, Sphero!” activity certainly did mobilize our students’ fathers to bond with them over robotics and a friendly competition. They learnt how to programme the Sphero to complete a simple course.  Let the pictures below do the talking!
