Transitioning from primary to high school and later into university education can be a challenging journey in a student’s life. Examples of some of these challenges include adjustments, self-esteem, friendship, academic studies, boy-girl relationship, health, family, financial issues and others. When issue(s) become too challenging for the individual to manage, he/she may need to turn to someone for advice, guidance and/or help.

Our school’s counselling staff are here to provide a listening ear, help our students explore different ways of looking at these issues or challenges, establish positive working relationship with our students so to guide them in going through these transitions as smooth as possible and to take positive steps to deal with these challenges more manageably. Our counsellors provide professional guidance in the following areas:
