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!
