LEARNER SUPPORT

We realise that some of our learners are in need of additional emotional and academic support. The Connect Groups provide a great place of belonging and learners sometimes discuss their challenges with their leaders there, there are also more serious challenges that our boys have to face in their personal lives.

Mrs Sue Farrell is available as counsellor for learners who need to discuss their personal challenges. She is in the process of completing a counselling course and has provided emotional safety for many learners. For more serious cases, she refers learners to registered counsellors, educational psychologists or even psychiatrists as these services are not available at school.

While not at the school anymore, Mrs Petra Snijman made a very valuable contribution in 2019 when she presented sessions in Feuerstein Mediated Learning to aid the cognitive development of learners.
