Discipline concern

Dawn Gibson
Friday, April 25, 2014

ALL schools — primary and secondary — should consider investing in qualified counsellors to help students deal with their problems on a daily basis in school.

This was one of the points raised yesterday afternoon at day two of the 113th Fiji Principals Association Conference 2014 in Suva by Dhirendra Prasad, principal of Pundit Shreedhar Maharaj College in Nausori.

Mr Prasad said the college recently raised some concerns over the lack of discipline among students and noted that more needed to be done in a way of providing them with counselling options.

"We have been trying to appeal to many schools out there about the importance of having counselling opportunities within the school," Mr Prasad said.

"These counsellors need to be qualified to do this as well, because at this time in their lives, students are going through all sorts of problems and having the option to get professional help from someone if they need it, it would be of great help."

Mr Prasad said being able to voice his opinion about this topic at a forum such as the principals conference was an excellent opportunity.
