“Every parent a supportive partner” is an important piece of MOE’s key theme “Towards Student-Centric, Values-Driven Education”. It emphasises the importance of partnerships between schools and parents in bringing out the best in every child.  At Meridian, we regularly share resources for parents with education news, resources and tips.  The most recent sharing is as follow:
