Pastoral Counseling Framework

PhysicalThe School reminds students that they need to look after,themselves physically – by getting enough exercise and sleep, not drinking,alcohol (excessively), etc.
MentalThe academic programmes offered by the School address this need.
SocialThe 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.
EmotionalThe 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.
SpiritualThe 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.
