Social & Emotional Counselling
The counselling services at ICS assist students with personal, social and academic concerns. Giving support with transition and adjustment to the students and parents who are new to ICS is as important as guiding the students and parents though adolescent issues and the different expectations of the Middle Years and the IB Diploma programmes.
The counsellor works with teachers and members of the Student Welfare Committee and parents. Students are seen individually or in small groups. A student may be referred to the counsellor by the Student Welfare Committee, a teacher, or a parent. Or a student can walk in and make an appointment.
To promote a healthy social, emotional development, the counsellor works closely with the tutors with Personal Development Programme. The counselling programmes aim is to enable all students to become productive, self confident, well-balanced individuals, who can realise their own potential and integrate into a multicultural community.
