Student Support & Counselling
Student support services assist students showing behavioural concerns, habits which act as barriers in their learning to achieve their educational and developmental potential by providing a range of strategies and specialised support at the individual, group and school levels. The team also works towards responding to emerging student wellbeing needs and contribute to identified school priorities.
Going a step further the team also works towards helping students make choices in following their interest and passion. There are many activities and sports offered in the Interest and Choice learning programme and students are guided and mentored through the process of selection of the activity best suited to them based on their skill, passion and attitude. The underlying goal of the team would be to work towards the social and emotional well- being of students through different strategies, provide pathways for enrichment programs and develop support for the students in variety of ways to assist in their learning journey.
The Counseling Department at Neev Academy aims to support students emotionally and socially in all aspects of the school environment. This would include attention to a healthy self-esteem, self-awareness and a sense of responsibility, to self and others.
The students can access the counselor directly if they feel the need for support to get through a situation or an emotion that is hard to handle. The teachers are also a source of referral for students they may see are struggling with choices. Parents can seek the extra help of the counselor either directly through the school contacts or share their concerns with the class teacher who would then guide them to seek help from the counselor.
Some of the areas addressed by the counselor would be:
Personal and Social Development is an integral component of the School Counseling curriculum. The School Counselor provides classroom guidance instructional delivery for students in grades PK to 5 on topics such as self-awareness, self-management, interpersonal skills, skills for building relationships and expectations of behavior.
If students require additional support outside the resources available at the school, they are referred to external resources such as psychologists, psychiatrists, doctors etc. following the consent of parents. The school counselor assists in the process of transitioning to ensure the student undergoes minimal interruption of services.
