Counselling and Career Guidance

School Counsellors


Home is the first place for pastoral care and support. In addition to what parents/caregivers offer, the school counsellors may offer additional support to assist parents by providing biblical counselling. The purpose of offering additional support is that students know they are listened to and provided practical help if needed. Above all, the school counsellor and the student can listen to what the Scriptures say about issues the student struggles with. 


Referral process at school

  • The classroom is the first place for counselling and pastoral care outside the home.
  • If the time required is beyond what is possible in the classroom, the teacher and principal will discuss what might be needed beyond the classroom.
  • If it is decided that counselling sessions are needed, the principal will discuss this with the parents and seek their input and permission. 
  • If permission is obtained, up to 3 sessions may be booked with the counsellor.
