20th April 2018
Our first parent-child bonding event of 2018 was a memorable one! On 20th April, 20 our students and their parents had a fun afternoon of conversation and hands-on crafting. After a yummy packed lunch, the parent-child pairs, led by PSG member Mdm Chooi Ling, created their own unique hand-made pencil holders. Both students and their parents had an enjoyable time working together on their projects – there was lots of laughter, encouragement and great concentration all around as they created their masterpieces!
NLB ‘Book Telling for Upper Primary Students’ Workshop
26th April 2018
On 26th of April, the PSG organised a Parents Workshop on ‘Book Telling for Upper Primary Students’. Over 20 parents took time out of their busy schedules to join us in the school library, as an invited speaker from NLB shared techniques and ideas to make reading fun and engaging for older children. A practical session followed where some participants got to try out their new skills. Everyone left the workshop feeling enthusiastic and inspired to encourage our young ones to read!

Mother’s Day Gift-Making
“Mothers are like flowers that are planted in our hearts that bloom and fill our lives with love”. What better way to show our appreciation for mothers than with a hand-made gift and heartfelt note? Our PSG parents came together over the course of three mornings to create a special ‘tulip’ bloom for our students to gift their mums this Mother’s Day. Over 500 unique blooms were made and given out to the students to surprise their mums! From all of us at PSG – Happy Mother’s Day!
Forest Adventure Father-Child Bonding Activity
21st July 2018
“You can do it!”, “Great job!”, “Don’t give up!” Shouts of encouragement and laughter filled the air early on a Saturday morning as 25 adventurous students, together with their fathers, gathered at Bedok Reservoir for some climbing fun at Singapore’s largest Tree Top Adventure Park. Each father and child pair challenged themselves to complete various obstacles as a team effort – crossing swaying bridges at a great height and even zip lining! For many students, this was a memorable experience – and it was all the more special as they got to share it with their dads!
Racial Harmony Day
24th July 2018
GYPS is a melting pot of different cultures, and this year’s Racial Harmony Day was a great opportunity for students to experience traditional games and practices. More than 10 of our dedicated Parent Volunteers (PVs) organised booths where our students could play games from different cultures such as Chinese checkers, ‘Tikam Tikam’, ‘Five Stones’ as well as get their hands painted with Henna. Our PVs had a great time interacting with the students, and teaching them about various cultural practices!
Teachers’ Day Gift-Making
21st – 24th, August 2018
“A good teacher inspires hope, ignites the imagination, and instils a love of learning”. Our teachers at GYPS are truly a dedicated team who pour their hearts into teaching our children. To recognise their efforts and encourage them, 20 of our Parent Volunteers got together to create a unique gift for each educator this Teachers’ Day. The creative streak in our Parent Volunteers shone through as they created over 70 notebooks with handcrafted beading and decorations as well as beaded keychains for the administrative staff. Here’s wishing all our educators a Happy Teacher’s Day!
