Providing comprehensive guidance to assist students in acquiring skills and attitudes needed to become effective and caring citizens and lifelong learners.

Greetings From the Chairs

We would like to extend a warm welcome to all students and families who have joined us or are thinking of joining. We love it when our community grows! A part of the overall support team at Prem, we are two of the many people here to help you feel welcomed, respected, and supported.

The Counselling Department works with Junior School and Senior School students alike to really listen to what’s on students’ minds and to hear what’s affecting their hearts. We help students catch negative thinking and change it around, we engage them in thoughtful reflection, and we help students tolerate frustrations and practice self-calming techniques.

We work in strong cooperation with other teachers, with the Principals, and of course, with guardians and parents to ensure student well-being. You can often find us in the classroom too, doing workshops on peer pressure, teamwork, self-esteem, gratitude, and lots more. You’re bound to see us on campus!

Counselling Services

Our team of counsellors provide support to ensure the wellbeing of students. Students with social, emotional, or motivational concerns can be supported by School Counselors and collaborate with Boarding Staff, Grade Level Leaders, teachers and families.

Strengthening Connections

On a regular basis, we reach out to parents for workshops on topics of interest, including cybersafety, drug awareness, child protection, and more. In our one-on-one sessions, we find ways to help students practice increased levels of self-care, compassion, and courage.

Well Being during difficult times

As we face the challenges of poor air quality and the global COVID-19 crisis it is important to be mindful of well-being for ourselves and our families. We hope the resources posted below will be useful and point to ways to cope and thrive during these difficult times.
