Parents play a vital role in children’s growth and learning. The Lutheran Association of Parents and Teachers (LAPT) is a platform enabling parents and the School to develop a close partnership in facilitating students’ effective learning, and moreover to enhance their healthy development.

I would like to express my gratefulness for the contribution and support from each of the former Exco members, fellow members and parents.

In the new school year, I appeal to every parent to join our LAPT membership by devoting a little of your time to participate in our LAPT activities and school matters. We shall work together and create a favourable learning environment so as to better understand and accompany our children’s growth.

Last but not least, I sincerely thank all of you who are willing to pay your utmost effort and support to all of our LA future leaders.
