School Family Education (SFE)
~Welcome to the Cedar School Family Education Unit~
History of SFE in Cedar
We began the programme in April 2004, and are now going into our fifth year of practice.
Cedar Girls' Secondary School has been recognised for participating in the Family Life Ambassador Programme since 22 April 2004, presented by Assoc Prof. Yaacob Ibrahim, Minister for Community Development and Sports.
Through our great assortment of programmes available, the Cedar SFE Unit aims to not only follow through with our mission and vision but also to add value to our projects and its participants at every stage possible.
The Effect of Incorporating the SFE Programme Into the School System: General Findings
Here are some of the key findings of a survey conducted on the SFE Programme in 2006.
Statistics also showed remarkable increases in the percentages of parents and students who saw improvements in their family communication and understanding and overall family life.
Evidence of How SFE has Impacted Our Cedar Community Over These Past Few Years
Implementing our programmes within the school community has resulted in rising confidence levels in family bonding and communication. Students are more proactive when it comes to taking the initiative in playing a role in family bonding, and we have received innovative and creative input from the students about SFE-related activities. We have also enjoyed pleased reactions from parents and staff.
According to our own internal studies/surveys conducted exclusively for Cedar, at least 70 - 90% of our programme participants leave the programmes with something "new, fresh and helpful". The information presented is generally practical and applicable in various simple aspects of daily life. Parents and students alike have indicated how pleased they were with the events, whether workshops, talks or miscellaneous bonding sessions and activities.
