Counselling

your child deserves to feel safe and know that people care

Your child’s socio-emotional wellbeing matters to us. Our counsellors are here as an additional and friendly point of support for your child. With years of professional experience, they create a comforting space for students to open up about anything that is troubling them. They also help students with personal, emotional and social development. Initiatives from our counsellors include:

  • Pink Shirt Day which advocates for anti-bullying
  • The Buddy Bench which encourages students to reach out to others in need of friendship
  • Lunch Bunch which facilitates social skills development in students
  • In-class character development programmes and more


Our counsellors, together with our child protection officers, are also key players in enacting the Child Protection Policy at GESS, which is committed to protecting children from danger, neglect and abuse (physical, sexual and psychological). The three main elements of our Child Protection Policy are prevention, protection and support.

The counsellors actively train all staff on campus to look out for signs of abuse and neglect in children and report these cases. They then take professional action to protect these children.
