As we try to boost the self-esteem of our children, do we accidentally make them more prone to narcissism and self-centredness?

Our Latest News
Welcome to DBSPTA-PD
The 2020/21 School Year was a continuation of 2019/20 in many respects. We continued half-day schooling/ e-learning and most of our after-school activities remained on hiatus. Many of our PTA events were cancelled and our boys spent most of their time at home.
In the midst of these challenging times, we at the PTA have pushed ourselves hard to adapt: changing event formats to keep the participants safe and to avoid cancellations, introducing new activities to address needs arising from the changed environment and investing in our infrastructure to enable us to better serve parents in the future.
As in previous years, our push for community service continued. Our parents, teachers and boys made an extra effort to support the various activities we had in the Community Service Sub-Committee. Although we could no longer visit the elderlies, we made scarves to keep them warm during winter and our boys made videos to keep their spirits high when none of their friends or family members can visit them. Apart from the elderlies, we also supported other charities during the past year.
We dialed up the number of parent seminars and offered a mix of in-person and online formats. In light of the impact of COVID on parents’ mental well-being, we introduced seminars focusing on positivity in parenting. For the first time, we also offered these seminars to our teachers and social workers and they were very well received. The new G1 parent sharing sessions continued and also for the first time, we offered our Green Uniform program to our new parents as well.
For new students, our DBS quiz was offered to G1 boys to give them a better understanding of the DBS legacy. For our graduating students (2019/20 and 2020/21), two separate Graduation Ceremonies were conducted to give our parents and boys a memorable day to celebrate.
In addition to all these activities, we introduced PayMe as an electronic payment option, we hope this will make it easier for parents to enroll in all our events and activities.
We are emboldened by the strong start in 2021/22, especially the resumption of the Garden Fete and the return to full-day school at the Secondary Division. We hope this momentum can continue and we can take a big step forward in our return to normalcy.
We could not have achieved the above without many of you. I would like to extend my wholehearted gratitude to Ms Lo and the School, our parent volunteers and the PTA Executive Committee for your support, understanding and patience.
Lastly, I wish you all a year of hope and resilience. May God bless us all in these trying times.
Mr. Joseph Wan
