2020 Message from EFSS PSG Advisor-Mentor

Dear Parents

Welcome to the Edgefield PSG community!

I have been actively involved in the EFSS PSG since 2016, when my child entered EFSS as a Sec 1 student.

Having led an EXCO team of 10-12 parents for the past 4 years, it has given me the opportunity to build up my proficiency in my soft skills in supervisory leadership, public speaking and presentation skills. This has also indirectly benefited me in my career, as I am a working parent.

My child has just completed her Secondary education in EFSS in 2019. However, I will still be staying on in the PSG Exco, as an Advisor-Mentor to guide the junior Exco members, and continue to contribute to the PSG Community in EFSS.

Come and personally experience, what it is like to work with other like-minded and equally passionate parents, who will work together as a team, and start to build strong bonds with the school, students and international pool of parents in the PSG community.

I look forward to an enriching and exciting 2020 ahead!

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.

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.
