Some of our girls helped with registration of new PRGS members. That’s the spirit!

Parents Workshop "My Child, My Mirror and Me"   

Saturday 26th July

The PRGS organized a Workshop by leading color Psychologist Ms Veronica Tan. During the Workshop, parents learnt a lot about their own personalities through color and identified their own strengths and weaknesses and the effect it has on the kids and their lives. The Workshop aptly titled, "My Child, My Mirror and Me".

In the end what matters is that we may be a different color than our children or our spouse but our children usually mirror our colors. And though it may be in the opposite way, since it's a reflection there are traits of us in our kids. To help ourselves to be better for our kids and the society, we need to love unconditionally, acknowledge their feelings, distil our values, create a possibility for our kids to grow and start with an action plan.

Thank you parents for taking out time and attending the workshop and to all the parents who missed it, we would like to say that do join us for these as it may provide an insight and tools to better understand our children.

Racial Harmony 2015   

Tuesday 21st July

A wonderfully fulfilling day, celebrating Racial Harmony together - the food, the activities, the performances and the games!! The girls got to try our staple food - Rice! made in so many different ways - Biryani (Indian), Nasi Ulam (Peranakan), Pulut Kuning (Malay) , Risotto (Italian), Mua Chee ( chinese) and Ssam bap ( Korean )

They danced to the Bangra and trained in Wushu martial art. They played peranakan games, wove ketupats and did rangoli. We hope they enjoyed it as much as we did organising it for them!
