Counselling

Wynberg has recently opened a new Support Centre which houses our three Counselling staff and also provides a venue for group meetings.

Both short and long term, supportive individual counselling is offered to boys who seek help or who are referred to the counsellor. The focus of counselling is on the current issues in the boy’s life that impact on his performance at school, his relationship with peers, parents and teachers, as well as his mood and behaviour.

Drug and alcohol counselling is also available to those who need it. The WBHS Counselling Department contracts with an experienced Addictions counsellor.

Grade 8 Drug Information Evening

This is a compulsory event for the Grade 8 boys to attend and we encourage all parents to attend as well. We will be informing all who attend about our school’s drug policy and how we manage the issue of drugs and alcoho. Our drug counsellor will also introduce himself and give a presentation regarding drugs.
