Counselling Corner: What students have been focusing on?

As Middle School Counsellors we are so fortunate to work with such wonderful young people! UNIS Hanoi students are happy, respectful and engaged, but inevitably issues do sometimes arise as they learn to navigate adolescence and manage their peer relationships.

To support this process, Counselling lessons from Grade 6-8 have focused on positive social interactions, defining and managing bullying, as well as encouraging upstanding behavior. Please don’t hesitate to engage in conversations with your child about their social interactions at school. If you have any concerns, please contact us.

Grade 9 is beginning the 4 year post-high-school planning process with self-exploration and identifying their interests and priorities. Please take a look at your child’s ‘Digital Collage’. They have also focused on some of their Approaches to Learning (ATL) skills, such as self-management, communication and collaboration.

Our upcoming ‘Parenting Talk’ with the MS/HS counselors will take place on the 23rd November and the topic for this will be ‘Cyberbullying’. Our MS students have completed a survey, sharing their perspectives on Bullying at UNIS Hanoi and this will form the basis of the presentation. We hope you will be able to join us!
