The majority of schools in Singapore encourage parents to be involved in their child’s education and this can be achieved through a number of means:
- Attendance at parent’s evenings, orientation events and conferences. Meeting with your child’s teacher on a regular basis is crucial for understanding how they are assimilating into the school environment and progressing with their studies.
- Read school newsletters and become involved in activities where relevant. Many schools distribute a regular newsletter to parents and this contains information about what is happening in the school. This will be a valuable source of information for parents who wish to get involved with school activities and events, such as assemblies, sports days, fetes and fairs.
- Parent workshops. If you have an area of expertise many schools in Singapore would be delighted to host a parent workshop. Get in touch with the school to offer your services.
- Volunteer. Schools are always looking for volunteers to help with activities and classroom sessions.
