Question

To ask the Minister for Education (a) whether online versions of schools' syllabus can be put up on schools' websites so that parents can access and help guide their children where necessary; and (b) whether the Ministry can conduct guidance workshops for parents who are keen to help their children with their school work.

Response

1. Online versions of the syllabus for school subjects are already accessible from MOE’s website. Similarly, schools share their key learning programmes and activities on their school websites, and through briefings to parents.

2. These efforts help parents to understand what their children are learning in school and appreciate how schools have implemented the national curriculum to engage their children in holistic education.

3. We encourage parents to support their children in learning by helping them to discover their interests and strengths, and provide a home environment that encourages children to develop self-management skills, take ownership of their learning and grow holistically.
