Parents Support Group (PSG)
The purpose of the Parent Support Group (PSG) is to engage and involve the parents of our students in the life of our school. It provides avenues for the parents to receive assistance, contribute and/or have a voice in the school.
Such collaboration is necessary as both the school and the parents have shared interests and responsibilities. We both seek to develop the students and prepare them in the best way possible for the future.
Despite busy schedules, it is in the interests of parents to be involved in school activities as it affects their child. With their involvement and assistance, the school can deliver more opportunities for quality learning that goes beyond its resources to provide. Parents who contribute their professional expertise can also help each other give valuable exposure/experience to the students and therefore, each other’s child.
In the same way, it is in the interests of the school and individual teachers to engage and work with the parents of the students. By keeping the parents informed and communication channels clear, they can get the parents on their side. This allows the school to be more effective in ensuring the students remain focused on learning and less time spent on discipline.
