Partners in Education
Who are we?
We are the Parent Support Group of Cedar Girls’ Secondary School. Our mission is to support the school in the holistic development of our daughters so that they will grow into Leaders of Character.
Cedar Girls’ PSG aims to
Provide parents with an opportunity for greater awareness and understanding of the School's philosophy and thereby help parents better identify with our daughters in their experience in school.
Support the school with tangible assistance in the form of parents volunteering their time to organise and support School events.
Act as a platform for parents to bond over shared experiences.
What we do
Every year, Cedar Girls’ PSG plays an active role in the Schools' calendar of events:
- Participation in School events including Induction Day, Sports Day, Cedar Run, Teachers' Day and Speech Day.
- Organisation of parent-child bonding sessions, fun family outings, parent get-together sessions and parenting workshops.
- Running the Parent-Guardian programme which is a befriender programme where International scholars in the School are paired with a local family to help them adapt to life in Singapore.
- Organisation of the annual Youth Carnival Day which is a fun filled day for our daughters to celebrate, let loose and enjoy an array of games and food with their friends.
We welcome all Cedarian parents with the heart to serve, to get together, plan and organise programmes or simply join us for a great time at one of our activities. Through active participation in these events, the relationship between the school, the parents and our Cedarian daughters is strengthened.
