“Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality.”  – Erich Fromm

Education is the most pivotal process which builds character and personality of an individual through intellectual, social and emotional learning. Schools as avenues of learning, play an important role in inculcating and developing socio-emotional learning in tandem with academics through a gamut of curricular and cocurricular activities. Student well being is the need of the hour, as we go through technological, social, economic and political advancement and changes that present educators and learners with new and diverse set of challenges. The school counselling program helps to promote student wellbeing with a partnership with educators, counsellors, parents and learners. It is based on:

  1. The developmental approaches to assist all students and parents at points of educational transition (home to pre-primary/primary, primary to middle, middle to high school, high school to post-secondary and career options).
  2. The remedial and systematic approaches to assist all students with academic, career and personal/social development w.ref.t issues that may affect the development and functioning of students (E.g. Abuse, low self-esteem, attention, aggression, ADHD, peer pressure, interpersonal relations, behavioral and learning difficulties)

A comprehensive school counselling program is implemented through classroom guidance, individual student planning school wide campaigns, psycho-educational talks and individual/group sessions.

We, at MES counselling cell, work collaboratively with all stakeholders-faculty, administrators, counsellors, parents and other support personnel to nurture and meet the needs of all of our students and to ensure campus safety through individual review, student leadership and positive school environment.

The key focus is on promoting and inculcating good mental health practices that are essential for students to learn effectively, cope with day-to-day challenges, make positive life choices, be empathetic, responsible and develop into resilient young adults.
