This meaningful event held six days before the actual graduation ceremony is also a time for the top graduates to say “Thank You” to the special people who helped them through this journey of success i.e. their family, their Secondary School Principal & teachers, their ITE lecturers and their poly Principal, Director, lecturers & their Care Person. Jannell fondly remembers and appreciates the guidance of Ms Deepa Patkunan and Ms Doreen Lau, her teachers in Paya Lebar Methodist Girls' School (Secondary) and has invited them to the event.

Brunch with Principal

PSSG parents eager to improve their parenting skills and interact with the principal gathered for Brunch with Principal on 8 April 2017. Close to 80 PSSG parents gained a better understanding of The 5 Love Languages from our workshop speaker, Dr Wu Mi Yin, from Focus on the Family. With the skills learnt, parents were better equipped to use the appropriate love language(s) to show love to their daughter. Following that, there was a session of interaction with the school leaders and PL staff where parents shared positive strokes and concerns. It was a meaningful time of sharing where parents grew in appreciation and understanding of the needs of their child and the support put in place by school for the holistic development of their child.
