Schools play a crucial role in nurturing children for holistic and balanced development. Parents are important in children's growth. Besides concerning children's development and providing holistic education, we emphasise communication and cooperation with parents. We can provide relevant assistance when parents encounter problems in bringing up children or family matters. We set up a bridging mechanism for better communication and to provide care and assistance to parents in need.

School-family supporting team

  There is a school-family supporting team in each of our affiliated schools, which each team has school ministers, bible teachers, etc. This unit provides supporting services including home visits, face-to-face meeting, or call to families by cases. The unit helps to understand more about children's daily life, to strengthen the communication between families and schools. On the other hand, it can learn more about the parents and their needs. Through home visits, the senior counsellor in the supporting team will provide appropriate assistance to the needy families, such as giving guidance or referral. Parents will also get to know Christianity and build their families with love and harmony.

Benevolence subsidy

  We do not only concern about children's physical and mental development, but we also provide financial assistance to parents with financial needs. We help them applying the “Kindergarten and Child Care Centre Fee Remission Scheme” from the Student Finance Office. Jesus told us to care for others, so we set up the benevolence subsidy to help those who fail to apply for the fee remission. Parents are encouraged to talk to us about their needs, and we try our best to provide appropriate assistance. To reduce the financial burden of families who are in need, we would assist according to the actual financial condition of the families.

On-site Pre-school Rehabilitation Services (OPRS)

  Child development and parent support are always the main concerns for the affiliated schools. The affiliated schools join the “On-site Pre-school Rehabilitation Services (OPRS)” for providing appropriate training for our pre-school children with mild disabilities.

  The consultancy team has clinical and educational psychologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, special child care workers, and social workers. The team visit schools regularly to provide groups or individual training to students. They also give professional advice, conduct educational seminars, and provide professional consultations on curriculum and teachers' development. So teachers can deliver appropriate training, which meets the special educational needs of students, and help students assimilate into their studies. Furthermore, OPRS also provides professional consultation, workshops, and seminars to parents.

On-site social workers

  To accommodate the demands of "One school social worker for each school", we have enrolled in the Pilot Scheme on Social Work Service for Pre-primary Institutions. This service helps identify and refer students to appropriate services early and offers assistance to parents in need.

  The on-site social workers provide professional guidance to students and their parents for special consultations and appropriate referrals. They also deliver consulting services to parents, students, and teachers. They conduct teachers’ training for their professional development, and they hold seminars and workshops to help parents gain knowledge about children's developmental needs. They also help parents to establish a supportive network. The on-site social worker service helps parents understand more about the influences of parental education and enhance the parent-child relationship.
