School Counselling: An Attempt to Improve Student Quality

林孟平(Man-Ping LAM)




Report No. 7 published by the Education Commission in 1997 aimed to raise the quality of education in Hong Kong schools. The present article attempts to bring out, through the two concepts of emotional quotient (EQ) and healthy self-concept, the importance of emotional health, self-esteem, self-respect and confidence. In addition, through a discussion of the aims and goals of school education and school counselling, the author affirms that school counselling should take developmental counselling as its direction and mode. Also, a holistic personal growth should include physical, intellectual, social, emotional, vocational and career development. Basing on this foundation, 6 suggestions have been put forward in the hope of raising school effectiveness as well as to educated students to ensure that they are of high quality.
