School Family Education

Adopts a holistic family learning model – equipping parents with effective parenting skills and training them to be parent facilitators, helping school staff to enhance their family life, and providing students with life skills training.
The parent-child relationship has much impact on the child’s academic achievements and positive attitudes/ behaviour, regardless of socio-economic status, ethnic/ racial background or parents’ education level.
SFE has been well received by parents and participating schools.

A happy family does not just happen. It takes effort and commitment. FamilyMatters! empowers you with the resources, knowledge and skills to build a strong, happy family.

FamilyMatters@School is a school-based programme that offers parents and students easy access to family life education (FLE) programmes and resources. It seeks to help parents and students enhance the quality of family life by equipping them with the skills and confidence to build strong relationships. FLE programmes and resources are tailored to meet the needs and profiles of parents and students. FamilyMatters@School also equips parents and young adults with the skills to nurture positive family relationships. By working closely with the school, parent support groups and parent volunteers parents can easily access family education programmes that help them better connect with their children. 

Our Philosophy:
  • FamilyMatters@School as preventive and upstream support for parents & families.
  • Targeted approach by matching the level of support to the levels of need.
  • Investing limited resources in parenting programmes proven to work and show measurable outcomes.  

FamilyMatters@School is also offering Positive Parenting Programmes which is a targeted and evidence-based approach that offer programmes that have been rigorously evaluated and suited to meet parenting needs.
