The Parent Support Group in XuHui campus works together with the school to support the students’ learning at major school events. The goal is to support the school’s efforts in creating a positive learning environment through fostering close relationships between the PSG members, teachers and students. The PSG also provides feedback for school improvements and serves as an important agent between the school and home. The PSG is a critical component of the SSIS community.
The PSG (XuHui) has been very active in co-organizing a few major events for the school this academic year. They helped to manage the games stall for our Sports Day on 30th October 2015. At the International Family Day (IFB) on 14th November, they set up a snack stall to sell popular Singaporean dishes. For our Christmas celebration on 16th December, the PSG put up a dance performance. One month later, on 27th January, the industrious volunteers set up a booth at the Lunar New Year Fun Fair and gave away Chinese New Year goodies to students who could greet them with traditional New Year greetings. In the pipeline, the PSG are organizing the International Friendship Day activities on 22d April. They will be cooking for teachers for Staff Appreciation Day in May and planning another fun activity for Children’s Day in June. The school appreciates all the contributions by each member of the PSG (XuHui)
Founded in 1996, the Shanghai Singapore International School aims to develop each student into a responsible global citizen, with a strong sense of character preparing them for success in any life or career path they may choose.
