All parents new to the PAREF system are obliged to attend the NPEP, a five session course on parenting, home-school partnership and marital relationship moderated by experts on family relationships. PAREF Southcrest commits itself to help parents to support children as students and be better persons.
While the presence of both parents in these activities are strongly encouraged, we are aware that there may be valid reasons which would warrant that both parents may not be able to be present, and only one of them can attend. Since the three PAREF schools in Cebu offer these courses on different dates, these courses can be availed of in flexible scheduling arrangements to facilitate attendance. Hence parents may opt to attend the NPEP course/s they missed in another PAREF school in Cebu, or do so the following year.
