Counselling is an opportunity for students to:
share with the School Counsellor concerns/difficulties they might have,
receive support during difficult situations they might be going through,
find solutions to their problems, if necessary.
School Counsellors are trained to help students with their difficulties. There are also trained Teacher-Counsellors to support students who may feel more comfortable speaking to a teacher.
Why see a School Counsellor?
Students may experience situations that are difficult to cope with. Having support can be helpful. These could be:
Problems with friendships (e.g. making friends, perceptions of bullying)
Problems at school (e.g. not coping with school tasks)
Problems at home with siblings and/or parents
Problems with grief/loss, anxiety, stress, learning, etc.
How can I get in touch with our School Counsellor?
- Students and parents may request to do so:
- Through their teachers
- Through a hardcopy form at the School General Office
- Students can also use the MGS student website under “Get in touch”
- Teachers may also make a referral directly to the School Counsellor, if deemed necessary.
