Parent Engagement

Always there for parents, always there for children

It’s important to recognise that the parent is a child’s first teacher. You know your children best - how they learn, how they respond to strategies, and what builds their confidence the most as they strive towards their aspirations.

Parent engagement within our community is not only about creating a community but is also important for our student learning. Creating a family oriented school community is a core value here at GEMS (Singapore). 

Parent Engagement Programme

Our Parent Engagement Programme connects parents with the world of formal education. Monthly parent engagement activities provide a variety of workshop opportunities to assist parents in understanding and supporting their children further. This simple daily strategy develops more engaged parenting and a better understanding of what children are doing at school.

At GEMS (Singapore), we encourage our parents to be active participants in the school community and actively involved in your child’s learning at home.  To support you, our school runs monthly Parent Engagement Workshops. These sessions are conducted by our education faculty and are specifically designed to assist parents in understanding and supporting their children’s learning.

Sessions include, but are not limited to:

  • Learning more about the specific nature of International Baccalaureate education
  • Exploring the use of technology in contemporary teaching and learning environments
  • Understanding assessment in international education
  • Delving into the role of iSTEAM and how it enhances student learning opportunities
  • Discussion on how sports supports the academic attainment
  • Exploration of how the Arts drives creativity, a crucial skill for the workplace
