Make time to spend quality time together. That is what Families for Life Council hopes families will take away from its new My Family Weekend initiative.
Inaugural My Family Weekend
Themed “Celebrating Families Together”, My Family Weekend is a special weekend dedicated to families, both immediate and extended. This year, My Family Weekend is being held from 31 August to 3 September 2017. From next year, it will be celebrated with the Teachers’ Day school holiday at end August or early September.
Recognising the Role Employers Play
In support this national initiative, on 31 August, more than 90 organisations hosted family-friendly activities such as Bring Your Family to Work Day, arts and crafts for kids and educational workshops.
These activities highlight the important role employers and community partners play in encouraging a more family-friendly environment in Singapore.

The picnic starts from 4 pm to 9.30 pm and includes activities such as a Family Outdoor Shoot and Families for Life “Mama Shop” where families can use money earned from games to redeem old-school treats.
