Empowering Families Through Family Matters@School!

Because FAMILY matters! Beatty Secondary School believes that the family is the anchor in our lives. In our attempt to support every Beattyian and his or her family, the school partners with the Ministry of Social and Family Development to provide educational programmes and resources.

Family Matters@School is a school-based programme that seeks to help parents and students enhance the quality of family life by equipping them with the skills and confidence to build strong relationships. FMS programmes include parenting talks and workshops which provide bonding opportunities for the parents and their children. All sessions are conducted by trained instructors and professional counsellors.

To further support parents, the school embarked on the Positive Parenting Programme (Triple P) under Family Matters@School in 2016. This programme has proven effective in improving children's behaviour and reducing parenting stress. With its implementation, all Secondary 1 and 2 parents received an invitation package from the school in January 2017 seeking input on their parenting needs. Invited parents would have been notified of the Triple P seminar dates by our FM school co-ordinator.

Parents who wish to know more about Triple P and FMS programmes can contact the school's FMS coordinator, Mrs Rosemary Ying at her mobile number 90620642.

Thus far, parents who have attended the sessions have given positive feedback.

Qualitative feedback from parents:

Do it more often. Good to have more interactive activities that allow parent-child participation and bonding. This was a very good programme and I’m thankful to the school for organizing it.

It’s a good programme, educating.
