EDB launches new Parent Education Activity Information Hub on Smart Parent Net website
     The Education Bureau (EDB) said today (June 7) that a new feature, Parent Education Activity Information Hub, has been set up on the parent education website Smart Parent Net. The Activity Information Hub provides parents of children in kindergarten, primary school and secondary school with one-stop access to information on parent education courses and activities so as to further enhance their knowledge and skills in parenting.
     A spokesman for the EDB said, "The Activity Information Hub provides various kinds of information on parent education courses and activities organised by different government bureaux and departments as well as post-secondary institutions in Hong Kong. The content will be updated regularly to let parents keep up with the latest information. Parents can filter activity information by using the category function, such as district, activity type, target participants and organiser, which can enable them to select suitable courses and activities. The Activity Information Hub will also provide application links of the courses and activities so that parents can obtain further application details quickly."
     The spokesman added, "Smart Parent Net was launched in February 2018. Through the continued enrichment of the contents, it has become an invaluable source of information for parents of children in kindergarten, primary school and secondary school on parent education which enables them to easily access useful information on supporting the physical and psychological development of students, including parent-child relationships, character development, parenting skills and emotional management for parents."
     In addition to parent education activity information, Smart Parent Net provides diversified video clips and articles on parent education, including advice from experts and academics, and experience sharing by parents and principals. Parents can also refer to important issues that are of interest to them through the calendar on the website, for instance the dates of making choices of schools for admission to Primary One or Secondary One and the release of central allocation results.
     The EDB has issued a Circular Memorandum to all kindergartens and primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong to encourage schools to recommend Smart Parent Net and the newly launched Activity Information Hub to parents so that they can easily access the latest parent education information. For details, please visit the EDB's Smart Parent Net (www.parent.edu.hk) and the Parent Education Activity Information Hub (www.parent.edu.hk/peaih).
