Moving from primary to secondary school is a transition for children and parents. Parents play an important role in supporting their children during the transition so that they can adjust and settle down in the new environment quickly.
To familiarise parents with the current secondary education landscape, MOE will be organising a Parent Seminar on 12 November 2016 at Nanyang Junior College. At the seminar, parents can learn about the various learning pathways and secondary school programmes available, and pick up tips and strategies to help their children cope with the challenges of adolescence.
If you have children who are in Primary 5 or 6, sign up for this Seminar by 4 November at https://goo.gl/Mq1HN3. Admission is free and registration is on a first-come-first-served basis. For queries on the Parent Seminar, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9421 6900 (Mon – Fri, 10am – 6pm).
Besides the seminar, parents can also refer to a set of resources developed by MOE on supporting their children’s transitions at every stage of their educational journey. The resource provides an easy framework – Support, Affirm, Familiarise and Empathise – that parents can follow to build a supportive and caring home environment in guiding your children’s transition through Primary 1, Primary 5 or 6, Secondary school, and upper Secondary.
Another recommendation is to spend time chatting with your children using T.A.D. What’s T.A.D? Download the attached file for more details!
