Diagnostic test

Sometimes when children seem to be experiencing difficulty in a particular area of learning the teacher or school counsellor (with parental permission), can conduct a diagnostic test to ascertain in depth information about the learner. The school counsellor is also available for counselling and the establishment of individual programs of remediation and enrichment.

From time to time the school counsellor may request an interview with parents to discuss progress at school. The school counsellor is a specialist in diagnosing learning or dealing with emotional problems experienced at school or at home. Parents may also request interviews with the school counsellor. An appointment can be made through the main office at school.
