Preparing Your Child for Primary Education – A Parent Seminar by Ministry of Education


Starting primary school is a big step in your child’s life. To help you better understand primary school programmes and enable you to make key education decisions, the Ministry of Education will be conducting a seminar on Primary School Education. At the seminar, parents can look forward to sharing sessions by the school principal and a parent volunteer, as well as view the various programmes our primary schools provide.

The Primary Education System and Primary One Registration
Mrs Mary Ngiam, Principal, Princess Elizabeth Primary School

The Primary School years are focused on giving students a good grasp of English Language, Mother Tongue and Mathematics; as well as helping children build character and cultivate good values and habits.
Mrs Ngiam will share with parents an overview of Primary School education. Parents will also learn about the registration process and what they need to take note of when registering their child for Primary One.

Choosing a Primary School and Supporting Your Child in Primary School
Mrs Veron Sim, MOE Parent Ambassador

With the right support from parents and schools, children will be able to adapt well and build a strong foundation for the rest of their education. Mrs Sim will share practical tips on selecting a primary school and how to prepare your child for school so that he or she can have an enjoyable school experience.
