Welcome to Presentation Secondary Schools Guidance Counselling Website
Presentation Secondary School is a community of staff, students, parents and management pursuing excellence in all its educational undertakings. The school offers each student the opportunity to develop her abilities and talents and so reach her full potential in a caring and happy environment. Faithful to the Catholic ethos and distinctive mission of the Presentation Congregation we encourage:
Presentation education is centred on the formation of the whole person. Our curriculum is designed so that each student is a valued member of our school and later becomes a confident, well-adjusted and fulfilled member of the wider community. All our aims are achieved in a spirit of cooperation, shared responsibility, respect and goodwill.
Guidance and Counselling Department Mission Statement:
The Guidance and Counselling Department is committed to the provision of a range of learning experiences, provided in a developmental sequence, designed to assist all students to make choices about their lives and to put an action plan in place based on these choices. These choices may be categorised into three separate but interlinked areas:
Personal and Social Guidance (Counselling): helping you with bullying, problems with friends, problems settling in to your class, worrying about friends or family members, etc. We will also listen to you if you are feeling down or depressed, or if there is anything you would like to get 'off your chest' or get advice on. So overall, a Guidance Counsellor might give advice, might give an opinion, will listen to you, and will help you to think about things in a different way. A Guidance Counsellor will not tell you what to do. You make the final decision.
Educational Guidance: helping you with studying, exam worries, deciding what subjects to pick before going into Second year / Fourth year, deciding on whether to do Higher or Ordinary level in Junior Cert. / Leaving Cert., etc..
Career Guidance: helping you decide on a career / a job / a college / a course that will suit you.
