More Information on EFSS PSG
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.

EFSS PSG Fathers Club
In 2017, we introduced our PSG Fathers Club. We strongly believe that both parents involvement in their child’s growing years, and building a strong father-child relationship, is a significant factor in a child’s emotional and cognitive development.
In 2019, we took a bold step and collaborated with Centre For Fathering Ltd, to conduct a 5-hr “ICAN Parenting Teens” Workshop on a Saturday morning, on 19 October. A group of about 15 Fathers and spouses attended the workshop facilitated by the speaker, Mr Parcsen Loke, Head, Programme and Development, and learnt valuable parenting skills from him.
