Family Matters @ School
Our school has been selected by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) to be under their FamilyMatters@School (FM) programme. This programme is fully funded by MSF. It was officially started in ParkViewPrimary School on 1st of April 2006. Since then, we have organised more than a hundred talks/workshops/trainings sessions for parents and students.
It is well established that the parent-child relationship has much impact on the child’s academic achievements and positive attitudes/behaviour, regardless of socio-economic status, ethnic/racial background or parents’ education level. As such, the main aim of FM is to enhance family bonding through its programmes.
The FamilyMatters@School programme seeks to:
a) Equip parents with the skills and knowledge to:
- Enrich and strengthen their family life; and
- Foster better parent-child understanding and relationship;
- Life skills;
- Skills to build healthy relationships with their peers and family; and
- Positive values and attitudes towards family, relationships and life in general
