Dads Amazing at North View Primary School Singapore

1,304 views

Published on

In 2009, together with a group of passionate fathers, Alex Devadass who is Vice-Principal of North View Primary School in Singapore began working on setting up Dads Amazing @ NVPS.

The move was to inspire North View Primary School’s fathers to be more involved in their children’s lives through father-child bonding activities such as workshops, experiential learning and outdoor experiences.

Dads Amazing activities have continued this year and recently, Alex organized the Dads Amazing Sleepover @ NVPS.

Alex Devadass has been married for 10 years and has 3 children: Alycia, 4 years old, Josh, 17 months and Jay-Sean, 3 weeks old.
