Our Juying Parent Support Group
JPSG Committee recognises the importance of parents working hand in hand with the school to bring out the best in our children. We believe that in order to help our children be successful in school, parents and teachers must come together as a team. We believe that when teachers and parents are allies and teammates, our combined influence on our children is very powerful indeed.
JPSG has always been supportive and actively involved in many school events such as the Annual Fitness Run and Teacher’s Day Celebration. In addition, parents are always ready to come forward and organise meaningful activities to foster a strong relationship between the school, families and other parents. Our annual parent-initiated activities include Family Bonding Day, Teachers’ Day Gift-making, and Sandwich-Making for the graduating students sitting for their GCE O-Level examination.
These activities send
a positive message to our children that we take an interest in their
|Chairperson 2017 to present: Mrs Dionne Ng|
Mrs Dionne Ng was nominated as Chairperson of JPSG in Nov 2017. Although also a working mother of three children, she has been actively involved in JPSG since her eldest son entered Juying in 2016.
Her participation in various JPSG parenting talks and school events has helped her gain a better understanding of what the school does to provide quality education for all JYians; improve her parenting skills and relationship between her own children; and formed better rapport with the school leaders and teachers, and other parents - JPSG members get support and get to support one another as well.
Under the guidance of the school teachers, Dionne has seen her son grown from a very timid boy to becoming more independent and mature as a student leader, something she feels that is very important. There are issues to handle for sure, and being in the JPSG helps. She strongly believes that Juying Sec, together with proactive and supportive parents working hand-in-hand with the school, will be able to groom all students into young adults with good values.
Teenage years are challenging years of growing up, and at the same time, offer the opportunities of great growth. She earnestly invites all parents to be a part of the JPSG, which is part of the school that supports the growth of their child, because, “Together, We Will Succeed”.
