What has the PSG done so far?

  • The current YJC PSG was formed in early 2009.
  • The PSG has been actively aiding the college to develop the character of students by :
      1. Being role models: parent volunteers participate yearly in setting up and manning the flea market booth at the college annual Celebrating Values Day. Parents also take time to assist the college in ad-hoc activities like college emergency drills and staff health checks.
      2. Being involved in our children’s JC journey: We organise seminars for parents of JC1 students on Project Work (PW) as well as plan other relevant parenting seminars.
      3. Showing concrete support for our children in their struggle through the high-stakes examinations: parent volunteers organise and distribute night snacks to support those staying late in the library to prepare for the exams.
