School has a full-time counsellor who operates at three levels:
- Addressing the classes from time to time to make suggestions on how to do things better and how to be happy.
- Counselling of individual students, alone.
- Counselling students along with parents, on the recommendation of teachers or parents.
The biggest benefit of school counsellors is that they prepare students emotionally and psychologically for academic, career and social challenges by relating educational agendas to their success in the future. They make students motivated learners and facilitate their exploration of careers. Counsellors also encourage students to talk to their parents or guardians about the things that they are worried about.
The support that school counsellors provide for parents and guardians is just as important as the support that they give to students. They may facilitate individual, parent-teacher or parent-parent consultations and discussions to ensure that everyone is on the same page when it comes to issues regarding the students, whether it involves disciplinary decisions, specific educational material or social provocations.
Also, School counsellors provide a lot of support to teachers by completing a team that can effectively address the educational goals and needs of students, leading to an increase in student achievements.
