Parent Support Group
Passionate parents from the Tao Nan School (TNS) Parents Support Group (PSG) collaborate with the school to play a supportive role. TNS PSG endeavours to be the channel for the school and the parents to come together, to make Tao Nan a better place for our children.
PSG comprises of parent volunteers whose children are currently studying in Tao Nan. PSG provides daily support to the school in areas such as recess and library duty, and co-organize events and workshops such as International Friendship Day and Racial Harmony Day. We collaborate with the school to facilitate classroom art appreciation lessons via the Art Outreach program, and act as chaperones for field trips.
PSG also actively supports FamilyMatters@School and the Dads for Life movement by organizing workshops and events to equip parents with skills to nurture positive family relationships, and fun-filled activities to strengthen family bonds.
