Counseling

As an IB World School, we believe that counseling students goes beyond academic and emotional support, and we aim to develop student achievement through incorporating leadership, advocacy, collaboration, equity and access to opportunities. We maintain a safe learning and working environment for all members of the school community, and ensure that students have someone to turn to if they need help. Our professionally licensed school counsellors are always available to address the individual needs of students through prevention and intervention programmes.

 

Our Aims

The NIST counseling team supports, facilitates and encourages student achievement by helping them:

  • Understand and develop a positive self image
  • Implement an effective decision-making process
  • Set individual, realistic, achievable goals
  • Develop effective study skills
  • Show respect and empathy for other cultures, traditions and individuals
  • Maintain healthy relationships with peers and adults
  • Resolve conflicts through communication
  • Increase awareness of the impact of their actions and enrich their community
  • Build resiliency in order to make transitions
  • Gain an understanding of a balanced life

 

Elementary Counseling Programme

NIST’s elementary counsellors provide a comprehensive counseling and guidance program that removes barriers to learning by attending to the personal, social, emotional and developmental needs of all students to ensure we have happy, healthy and successful students.

Services are provided through:

  • Classroom guidance lessons
  • Individual and small group counseling
  • Consultation and collaboration with parents and teachers
  • Parent presentations and workshops
  • Referrals to other school support services or community resources
  • Student Support Team

High School Counseling Programme

In order to prepare both students and parents for the transition to university-level studies, we provide a comprehensive programme that begins in Year 10 and continues throughout high school. This includes individual and group discussions, information sessions, university visits and fairs, and social and emotional counseling. By structuring these activities over the course of four years, we ensure that our graduates leave NIST as mature, conscientious adults.
