Student Guidance Counselling

The student guidance counsellor, group coordinator, subject teachers and other school staff participate in student guidance counselling. Every student belongs to a group that has a teacher appointed as a group coordinator. On Wednesdays group leaders meet their groups where students are informed about study related matters and current events. The best way to contact group coordinator is through the Wilma system.

There is a student welfare group in the upper secondary school that meets regularly during the school year. The group consists of the social counsellor, school nurse, student guidance counsellor, special education teacher, school psychologist and the vice-principal. The student welfare group's responsibility is to ensure the upper secondary student's well-being, improve school relationships and generally increase student's satisfaction with the school. The group members may be contacted regarding matters relating to student welfare.

Course changes and changes to study plans are to be made with the student guidance counsellors. If you are contemplating matters concerning studies, life or the future, the student guidance counsellor can be contacted by telephone or email. The student guidance counsellors can be contacted 9am - 3pm.

The special education teacher can give personalised guidance for matters concerning study techniques. The special education teacher can arrange reading disorder tests for students if required and reading disorder related statements for the Matriculation Examination Board and can also discuss with students and guardians about the test results.

If a student is facing difficulties with attendance, personal relationships, drug use, time management or matters related to changing circumstances, they or their guardian can contact the social counsellor. She is available on Mondays,

Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

A school psychologist guides and supports the students’ needs. If needed outside support can be saught after also upon recommendation of the student welfare group. The school psychologist is available on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. At any other times the school psychologist can be contacted directly through e-mail.

The school nurse is generally available on weekdays and can be seen without an appointment weekdays 9:30 - 9:45 and 11:00 - 11:30.
