Student Services – Counselling and Guidance
Our Counseling and Guidance Services stress the individual uniqueness of students and is based on the belief that all students should be directed to a level of self-actualization. The scope of the services is preventive and proactive in focus and developmental in content and processes. ‘Developmental Counseling’ and ‘Crisis Intervention’ are the two main components of the services.
The developmental Counseling programme assists students in exploring social, emotional, and intellectual tasks, which lead to personal, social and academic developments. The services are proactive and preventive in that they anticipate challenges of personal growth and assist students in gaining maturity. The underlying focus of the programme is to help students develop the skills, attitudes and knowledge base they need.
Psychological services are available for students who may experience learning difficulties, or who have emotional or personal problems that prevent them from reaching developmental goals.

Students are usually up-to-date on their immunization till they reach the age of 14.
Please be sure to update their immunization records and provide the school with the copy. Allergies, if any, needs to be intimated to the school.
When taking medication during the school hours the following requirements will have to be met:
If a student becomes ill during the day, she/he has to get a pass from the teacher to the health aide. A prolonged stay in the rest room, due to illness, but without prior permission, amounts to truancy. If the condition warrants, parents will be called to school to collect the student.
