Counselling and Student Welfare Support
Student Welfare and Well-Being
In Serangoon Secondary School, we strongly encourage help-seeking behaviours in our students.
Positive help-seeking behaviours demonstrate the courage and strength to seek ways to understand oneself better, to get support for help to make things better and take a step towards improving our well-being and happiness.In addition to approaching their teachers for help, students also have access to the School’s Student Development Team comprising of Year Heads, Assistant Year Heads, Subject Head Student Welfare and the School’s Counselling and Student Welfare (SCSW) Team.
If you would like to find out more about how you could be supported, you may contact us via this link.
There are times in our lives when we encounter stressful and distressing situations and the people we would usually turn to for support may be temporarily not available. Having a set of healthy coping skills is a key to getting through those difficult times. It helps you to tolerate and deal with the stressful situations with a clearer mind and making better informed decisions.
Below are some helpful coping strategies you can try out for yourself to get through the difficult time until you can speak to someone whom you value and trust.
