In today’s society, education is much more than just students attending school and obtaining paper qualifications. It is ‘social’ education where parents are more informed, active and participative in the schools’ and their children’s curriculum. The teachers and staff of the school seek the partnership of parents to collaborate for the children’s development.
This explains why the Ministry of Education officially launched the 1 st Parents Support Group (PSG) Forum in 2014, in recognition of the efforts and successes we can generate through the combined efforts of parents and schools.
In YI, our Parents Support Group, YI-Blossom, has been in existence since 2001. I am honored to have been able to work with the school leaders, who have been very supportive towards YI Blossom.
YI-Blossom believes that our involvement has contributed positively to our children’s growth and we continue to seek parents’ active participation.
We look forward to the continued contribution of ex-Yusoffians who have walked through YI’s gates, to share their success stories as they contribute to society in their own ways. In doing so, they are contributing to the development of the future citizens of tomorrow.
YI-Blossom would like to express our appreciation to past and current committee members for their valuable contributions, not only in kind but more importantly, in investing their time, thus contributing to the continued success of YI-Blossom.
Moving forward, we still have much to contribute and we warmly encourage all parents to join us in YI-Blossom.
