Guidance and Counselling 

Guidance Counsellor

Guidance and Counselling is at the heart of our Pastoral Care System in Grennan College.  Our Guidance Counsellor has a caring and supportive role in the school where students can get advice and support about a range of issues.   From relationships to study skills and family difficulties to college advice and information, the Guidance Counsellor is on hand to meet with students in a confidential environment where they can be cared for and supported throughout their time in the school. 

Counselling helps pupils explore their thoughts and feelings and the choices open to them. It gives care and support to pupils learning to cope with the many aspects of growing up and school life and with their individual personal circumstances.
Grennan College endeavours to offer a comprehensive guidance and counselling service to all our students. The Guidance Counsellor liases with HSCL, Year Heads, Class Teachers, Learning Support Teachers, School Chaplain, Subject Teachers, Deputy Principal and Principal. He also has regular contact with parents, psychologists, employers, colleges, social services, counsellors and the Department of Education

  1. Educational Guidance & Counselling - providing support at key moments during your time in school.  The Guidance Counsellor is involved in helping with the transition from primary to secondary school and with helping with subject choices in second year and fifth year.   The Guidance Counsellor also works with students on developing their study skills.
  2. Vocational Guidance & Counselling - working closely with students in 4th, 5th and 6th year on career/ college choices.
  3. Social and Personal Guidance & Counselling – the Guidance Counsellor is available to meet with students to talk about any issue that might be affecting them.  The students may also have talks and workshops on stress management, making friends, mental health etc
