The New Academic calendar has brought fourth changes in the school programs. At Nova Pioneer, we have ensured students adjust to these changes. Each of our campuses has a qualified counselor who provides individual and group counseling sessions for our students.
Teenage years remain to be the most crucial years of a child’s life. Being a child and trying to build a sense of independence in a world that is changing so fast is a major task for them. As a parent, you influence your child’s basic values, like religious values and educational choices. The stronger your relationship with your child is, the more influence you will have, because your child will be more likely to seek your guidance and value your opinion and support.
The change of the school programs in the last few years has challenged the family system’s active involvement in our children’s development, and therefore intentional collaboration with the school promotes successful support to the students.
Individual counseling sessions continue to be the primary way through which major counseling issues are addressed. This is done throughout the week and on the weekends.
As our students grow up, we have been able to note a need to talk about various challenges that they are facing.
The different personalities and experiences they have plays a major role in causing conflicts amongst themselves. Group counseling provides a safe space for them to listen to one another and be able to empathize with each other even as they learn. This term we have been able to discuss various addictions including drug and substance abuse.
The family is the basic unit of society. Families also foster a sense of belonging to something greater than oneself. As the Nova Pioneer community, we strive to maintain the sense of connection and belonging in our students even when they are away from home.
And this is why we have families in the school. Each family has one teacher who is the parent to eight to ten students. The families have scheduled sessions that take place every Wednesday from 7-7.25 am. Spending 25 minutes at the start of the school day to help students talk through issues they may be having and practice social and emotional skills can have a positive effect on their academic achievement.
We also work with our parents who continue with the conversations during holidays.
