Miss Tan Wee Lim, the new Principal of Eden School shared with the parents and staff, the 2 key focus for the Parent Communication Night:
- Provide an update of the Key Focus Areas (KFAs) for each Education Track in Eden School
- Parent Sharing
- Theme of Employability to Employment
- Vocational Training and Setting Up Worksite for Success
A total of 27 new teaching and support staff, and 6 Youth For Autism (YFA) were introduced to the audience. The student enrolment had increased to 213.
Mr Daniel Liu, Ms Melaine Koh, Ms Felicia Yeo and Ms Koh Xin Yu provided the audience updates on the key focus for the 4 tracks – Emerson, Blake, Columbus and Jubilee. Through video clips and photos, they also gave parents snap-shots of the students’ learning experience at Eden School. Parents appreciated the tips given on how they could better support their children at home.
Ms Jac Ang, a member of Eden School Board and a parent of a child with autistism, shared her experience of preparing her son for vocational training. Using effective video clips, her candid sharing of her experience to get her son to do office tasks and work at her husband’s office struck a chord with the audience.
In closing, Ms Denise Phua, the School Supervisor rallied the parents to support their children in their life journey.
On the whole, the first PCN had been well-received. Feedback was very positive as the audience found the sharing very inspiring and encouraging. They went home with many good ideas they can use to help their children prepare for greater independence.
