2021 Message from EFSS PSG Chairperson


Dear Parents,

A warm welcome to Edgefield Secondary School!

EFSS PSG started out in 2014 when the school first took its baby steps to become what it is today.
We strongly believe that parents' involvement in their child's growing years by building a strong parent-child relationship, is a significant factor in a child's emotional and cognitive development.

Here is a look at how the PSG partners with the school:

1) Organise talks on various parenting issues,
2) Participate in bonding activities for our children,
3) Organise festive activities in school to create more awareness on the different cultures and their importance,
4) Participate in other school initiatives and/or collaborations.

We welcome you and/or your spouse to join our PSG family and volunteer your time and expertise!

Looking forward to another great year with the PSG community!

Synopsis


EFSS PSG started out in 2014 when the school first took its baby steps to become what it is today. During term time, the PSG EXCO Team collaborated with the school to organise various school events, such as Chinese New Year Celebration, International Friendship Day, and Racial Harmony Day, just to name a few.

The purpose is to provide opportunities for parents to volunteer their time and expertise to facilitate activities in school, and at the same time, build strong bonds with other parent volunteers, their children, other students, and the school teaching community.
