Parent Support Group (PSG)
On the 27th July 2021 Ministerial Statement in parliament, Minister Chan Chun Sing mentioned that MOE seeks to strengthen the partnership with Parent Support Groups in all schools. The school, parents, and ministries will work together to establish a caring and enabling society that gives greater attention to the well-being of our children. PSGs also play an important role to provide support to our parent community.
At Edgefield Primary School, PSG comprises a group of enthusiastic and dedicated parents who supports the school programs and activities to develop the students holistically. Over the years, PSG has grown from strength to strength and plays vital roles in our school's academic programs (e.g. Buddy Reading and Mother Tongue Fortnight), national events (e.g. National Day celebration and Racial Harmony Day), and festive celebrations. By working hand in hand with the school, PSG is involved in the lives of our children, thus helping them reach their potential.
To be a valued partner in achieving the school's vision of "Lives Empowered, Lives Touched" by working in close collaboration with the school.
To partner with the school in nurturing and optimizing the full potential of every pupil who endeavors to excel.
The school and PSG organized some activities throughout the year, some activities are ongoing, whilst other events are held annually. The support of all parents as partners in education is important in ensuring that our children are developed to their fullest potential. We encourage all parents to be actively involved in the school activities and everyone is welcome to be on board!
