Northwood offers a wide range of support services to our pupils. The Counselling Department provides an opportunity for pupils who may be burdened with a problem, be it emotional, personal or academic, to speak confidentially to the two counsels, Mr M. Rich and Mr R. Lyle. A session or two with the counselling department often resolves the matter troubling the pupil and allows the pupil to resume his school day, free from worry.
Parents are also welcome to contact the counsellors should they wish to discuss their son’s problems. Such interactions may be useful in gaining a wider perspective in getting to grips with a troublesome issue.
Pupils may make an appointment to speak to the counsellors, either by seeing them direct or by having Mrs Carazzo at the front office find them. Parents may contact the school via the switchboard and leave a message.
