At Oasis, nurturing the students and providing guidance and support to the parents starts from the time they step into school. The counsellor is available for any questions/queries that they would like to clear at the admission stage. We are one of the few international schools who have full-time counsellors and clinical psychologist to provide students with the required emotional and educational support through their school life. The counsellors support and help children in their social, emotional intellectual and vocational growth.
At Oasis International School, each student is valued as a unique individual. The Counselling and Guidance department helps the students to balance their personal, academic, and social goals. We work towards building sound relationships between students, staff, and parents. Through guidance, it is ensured that student has a supportive environment in which to flourish.
The school should be a safe environment, and we have adopted the Safe and Sensitive Schools Programme (SASS). The is a tried and tested programme that supports the school to be safe through embedded policies, space and interactions that are positive, constructive, nurturing for all students and staff alike. The Quality Circle Time developed by Jenny Mosley forms the basis of the SASS programme. It is a non-hierarchical and inclusive discussion which promotes trust, respect, empathy and understanding.
Policy Guidelines for Counsellors
At Oasis International School, we aim to offer guidance to our students through Counsellors.
Pastoral care is described as individual patience in which trained pastoral caretakers (Counsellors) support people in times of pain, loss and anxiety, and in their triumphs, joys and victories. Pastoral care is looking after the personal and social well-being of students under the care of a Counsellor.
