School Family Education
School Family Education (SFE) is one of the recommendations of Family Matters! Singapore (Previously known as Public Education Committee on Family). RGPS has been on board this programme since 1 Apr 06.
SFE adopts a holistic family learning model to equip parents with effective parenting skills and train them to be parent facilitators. It also looks into helping school staff to enhance their family life, and providing students with life skills training.
The parent-child relationship has much impact on the child’s academic achievements and positive attitudes / behaviors, regardless of socio-economic status, ethnic/ racial background or parents’ education level. Hence, SFE aims to reinforce the bonding of every family through a series of initiatives.
