HPS Ramanthapur creates a child gifted and talented with a different way of looking at the world and learning. School is all about institutionalized nurturance of student’s abilities through education and life skills development. There will be no replacement for human service in the development of a child. Counseling service is an integral part of our educational process in the school to support students in their developmental journey. Counseling psychology facilitates students in personal and interpersonal functioning across the life span with a focus on emotional, social, educational, vocational, and developmental concerns. The main focus of counseling is to support students to improve their wellbeing, alleviate maladjustment, resolve crises, and increase their ability to live more highly functioning lives.
At school, we listen and respond with core successful counseling conditions of empathetic understanding, unconditional positive regard, congruence, respect, confrontation, immediacy, concreteness, and self-disclosure in a way to help students to solve a problem and attain their potential. We also help them understand and improve one’s behavior, character, values, or deal with life’s circumstances.
Individual Counselling rendered out for children with the assistance of school authorities, teachers, and parents based on school referrals or self-references by students themselves to improve their overall personality.
Interventions in counselling like psychodynamic counselling, insight and short term counselling, interpersonal counselling, behaviour modification and cognitive approach in counselling, solution focused and integrative counselling, family and group counselling, eclectic counselling according to the individual needs.
“A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between, he does what he wants to” – Bob Dylan.
We at HPS Ramanthapur firmly believe that we are not only creating good students but professionals of tomorrow. Professionals who will add value to society and go on to attain success in whatever they endeavor for. Therefore, it is very important that they understand their own strengths – academic and nonacademic and look at pursuing undergraduate education and profession accordingly.
Therefore, the career guidance activities – comprising of group sessions and individual counseling, aim to attain the following –
- “Inform” the students about upcoming courses, careers, new age universities, and trends for college placements and “guide” them in the direction of choosing a course/career as per their strengths, interests, and personality.
- Importance of CV building in today’s world and how students can add to their extracurricular and create a stellar resume, which will, in turn, help them in securing college admissions.
Along with participating in the activities conducted in-house, students are also encouraged to participate in webinars and discussions conducted by various universities, summer internships and competitions to seek clarity on their undergraduate and earn certifications as well. The career cell keeps organizing webinars in collaboration with various universities where students have got a first-hand account of the preparation required to be “college-ready”.
To make sure that students are provided with the most updated information, we are also connected with forums like IC3 and participate actively in sessions organized by universities and platforms which bring together resources and stakeholders in the field of education together. This enables us to be abreast with the latest trends and pass this know-how to our students.
Recently, COVID limited our face-to-face interaction with students, however, we made sure to connect with them online and also got a glimpse of their world in due course of counseling!
There will be a plethora of exciting activities coming up from the career cell in the future!
