Workshop for Parents

The PSLE is the first major exam children take in their learning journey as students in the Singapore education system. This exam is stressful for both parents and students alike and parents often wonder how they can give their children the best support they can to help them achieve academic success.

In this workshop on PSLE English, we aim to equip you with practical and effective strategies to help your child develop a strong language competence and nurture an ever-present positive learning mindset.

Our subject expert will provide you with a clear understanding of all that the PSLE paper entails and some specific learning strategies that you can use to coach your child at home. Apart from the learning aspect of exam preparation, our speaker will also provide some useful tips and tricks on how to manage and nurture your child’s learning attitude in a positive direction.
