Sentrum Vir Leer-En Ondersteuningsdienste |
Learning & Support Centre

The Learning and Support Centre (LSC) has, over the past year, offered continued and accessible psychological services to the Grey College Secondary community. The Centre is staffed with a counselling psychologist (Chanell Cuyler-Greeff), school counsellor (Daniela Petrella) and administrative/concession official (Lynette Claassens).
The LSC contributed to the Grade-8 orientation programme with the commencement of the new academic year by addressing the boys regarding bullying, as well as the variety of psychological services Grey boys have access to at the LSC.

Besoek is afgelȇ by die drie koshuise op kampus om ook dáár die leerders in te lig rakende die dienste wat die Sentrum bied. Aanpassing, verhoudingsprobleme, konflikhantering, hantering van groepsdruk en stres, emosionele regulering, selfbeeld- en selfvertroue ontwikkeling, motivering en tydsbestuur, is enkele voorbeelde wat deur die jaar by die Sentrum aangespreek is en waarmee die koshuisseuns, veral, presenteer. Dienste wat deur die Sentrum vir Leer en Ondersteuning (SLO) gelewer word, sluit in psigoterapie en berading (gratis); die hantering van aansoeke vir Departementele akademiese konsessies; skolastiese evaluasies met die oog op die identifisering van leerstruikelblokke en/of akademiese konsessie-kandidate; vakkeusevoorligting; beroepsvoorligting; en psigometriese sifting vir Disleksie, Aandagafleibaarheid en Hiperaktiwiteit, sowel as Depressie en Angs.

In March 2019, the LSC exhibited at the Career Expo hosted by Grey College Secondary School in order to create an awareness among the Grade 11 and 12 learners of the career guidance services available to them, since there appears to be a growing need for said services among the Grade 11 boys, in particular. 

Die Sentrum het in Mei 2019 die jaarlikse aflê van aanlegtoetse deur die graad 8-leerders behartig.
’n Totaal van 241 graad 8-leerders het die psigometriese assessering voltooi. 132 seuns se ouers het van die geleentheid gebruik gemaak om die SLO vir terugvoer oor hul seuns se prestasie te kontak. Die SLO is op 1 Junie 2019 by die jaarlikse Koshuis-opedag verteenwoordig en positiewe belangstelling is getoon rondom die bestaan van die Sentrum op die skoolgronde en die dienste wat die SLO bied. Ouers en leerders is ook toegespreek tydens die graad 9-oueraand in verband met die waarde van vakkeusevoorligting. ’n Groot aantal graad 9-leerders het weereens van die SLO se vakkeusevoorligting diens gebruik gemaak.  

Academic support, in the form of individual study therapy and scholastic evaluations with the aim of identifying learning obstacles and possible academic accommodation candidates, continues to be in demand. Academic motivation and goalsetting, time management, memorising and summarising strategies, as well as academic endurance are relevant issues addressed throughout the year. The Elevate Education Conference was attended in 2019 in order to keep abreast of the latest research and techniques in study therapy. The LSC, again, managed the annual process of the submission of applications for academic concessions to the Department of Education. In the fifth year of the Learning and Support Centre’s existence, the ever-increasing number of learners making use of the services offered at the Centre bears testament to a growing and substantial need for accessible and affordable psychological services within the Grey Community.
