PRE - COURSE COUNSELLING FRAMEWORK



Physical The School reminds students that they need to look after,themselves physically – by getting enough exercise and sleep, not drinking,alcohol (excessively), etc.
Mental The academic programmes offered by the School address this need.
Social The School creates opportunities for students to come together and interact with each other. This is through discussions, project work, or activities. In so doing, they would also be able to hone/develop their social skills.
Emotional The emotional aspect refers to how a person relates to and accepts him/her and his/her situation. In dealing with students who may need counseling, the designated staff are sensitive about addressing the emotional and social needs of each student who may be lonely or depressed.
Spiritual The School arranges for talks to inspire students as they struggle against the difficulties and challenges they face. The School also encourages students not to focus on their own problems, but also to consider the needs of others.
