Secondary 1 Parents' Talk
On 17 January 2015, a Parents’ Talk was conducted for parents of Secondary One students on “Helping Your Child Achieve at AHS.”
Our Principal, Mdm Maureen Lee, gave the opening address on the transition from primary to secondary school. Thereafter, an invited speaker, Ms Dilys Tran, shared on the DISC Personality Profiles. All our Secondary One students have recently completed the DISC personality profiling and the talk provided parents with useful information on how to better interact with their child according to their personality profiles.
The Head of Departments also took turns to share with the parents on how they can help their child build a strong foundation and excel in the different subjects. For example, Mdm Chan Hwee Leng (HOD / Humanities) shared on the importance of the 21st Century Competencies and Critical Thinking Skills and how they are taught through the various subjects. Mr Joseph Tam (HOD / Science) shared on the differences between primary and secondary science, and tips on answering skills.
The talk was a fruitful session for the parents with strong positive feedback received that they have gained valuable insights into helping their child adjust to secondary school life and the various subjects.
