Family Matters @ School

FamilyMatters@School is a school-based programme that offers parents and students easy access to family life education (FLE) programmes and resources.

Started in 2002, the programme seeks to:
a) Equip parents with the skills and knowledge to:
      • Enrich and strengthen their family life; and
      • Foster better parent-child understanding and relationship;
b) Equip students with:
      • Skills to build healthy relationships with their peers and family; and
      • Positive values and attitudes towards family, relationships and life in general

Under the FamilyMatters@School programme, the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) provides evidence-based parenting programmes* to further enhance parent–child relationships. CHIJ SJC is one of the schools onboard this programme, in partnership with Methodist Welfare Services and MSF.
