Parent Support Group

As parents, we play a very big part in our children’s development into well rounded and responsible youths. The NYGH Parent Support Group believes that by being actively involved with our daughters and working closely with our daughters’ educators, we can help them to stretch their talent and realise their full potential.

Our Mission
  • Promote a positive partnership among parents, the school and the Alumni through the organisation of and interaction in activities that are mutually beneficial
  • Provide opportunities for parents to volunteer, share or contribute their talent and time to the school for the benefit of our girls
  • Provide opportunities for parents to network and support each other in the parenting journey
From Our Chairperson

Dear parents,

People often talk about how going to secondary school is a milestone for our children.  What is less often talked about is that this is also a milestone for parents.  Just like our children, we have to learn about the new school, make new friends with other parents, understand the school curriculum and assessment framework, learn how the CCA system works, and even learn about how to choose a suitable personal learning device for them.  In addition, we have to figure out how to parent teenagers!     

The demands on parents are great and at Nanyang, we have an active PSG to journey with you as you and your child make this important transition.

Hear from PSG members on their thoughts about being part of our NYGH PSG.

“A big sincere heartfelt thank you to all of you at PSG.

Your warm hospitality and great care of my daughter during CNY – the greatest festivity for Chinese, has alleviated our concern of her missing the tradition of reunion with family due to this unprecedented pandemic. Your warm hearted arrangement has caught us off guard.

Thumbs up for NYGH PSG. A big LIKE in NYGH PSG Facebook.”

Father of Sec 2 scholar from Malaysia (2021)

“2019年初, 我参加了PSG举办的中一家长交流会,结交了很多朋友,获知更多班上和学校的信息,我们也一起参加PSG的活动,如包粽子活动等,友谊延续至今。我很感激PSG为家长和孩子们的无私奉献,于是,我加入了PSG的执行委员会 (Exco)。在2020年的疫情期间,我见证了PSG领导如何积极排除困难,为家长和孩子们付出关怀、伸出援手,例如,在短时间内筹办网上中一家长交流会来舒缓新生家长们的疑虑,还为留校复习的孩子们筹集资金购买饮料食物充饥等。在这友爱的环境里,PSG的成员们发展出真诚的友谊,相互支持和鼓励。PSG是个温馨的大家庭,请加入我们吧!”

中三学生的家长 (2021)

“In my daughter’s first year with NYGH, I took part as a PV in the PSG-organised Sec 1 Dumpling Wrapping event and the Sec 1 End of the Year games.  After each event, I was amazed by the planning that went into the events and the passion the PSG parents had.  Most of all, I felt I was part of big fun-loving family.

These PSG events gave me the chance to meet other NYGH parents, a more intimate understanding of the NYGH culture and the opportunity to be part of the school activities my girl was involved in.  Four years quickly passed. Four years of supporting one another in the parenting journey, even through trying times like 2020.  Four years of gaining a better understanding of your child.  Four years richly spent.”

Tuck Chee
Father of Sec 4 girl (2020)

“4 years ago, I signed up as a PSG member when my first-born daughter was in Sec 1. At the time, I was worried and curious about how secondary school life would impact her and I thought that joining the PSG would allow me to form a closer relationship with the institution whilst gaining more understanding of her school environment. Through participation in the PSG events, I was pleased to be able to meet and network with parents who shared similar challenges in our parenting journeys. This platform allowed us to support each other and exchange positive parenting resources.

The volunteering opportunities within the PSG also facilitated my support of school events and the bond with my daughter, e.g. joining the parent-daughter activities and my involvement in the PSG had enabled us to have meaningful conversations about her school life on a regular basis. I am very thankful for the opportunity to have served in the NYGH PSG.”
