Wellness and Counseling

At GWA, the goal of the Care Program is to support each student to grow, develop and engage in successful learning through meaningful relationships and learning experiences. 

GWA’s counseling department works on to ensure the social and emotional wellbeing of our students. The counseling team helps students to:

  • Acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities;
  • Manage emotions;
  • Achieve personal and collective goals;
  • Feel and show empathy for others;
  • Establish and maintain supportive relationships;
  • Make responsible and caring decisions.

Our qualified counselors facilitate the social and emotional growth of students using methods that align with their developmental stage. This encompasses collaborative efforts with staff and parents to formulate strategies for enhancing well-being and safeguarding.

To ensure a productive collaboration, the counseling department offers the following services:

  • Information sessions and workshops for parents
  • Individual or group counselling
  • Liaison with teachers and parents


Advisory Program

GWA’s middle and High school years offer a comprehensive advisory  program that serves as a vital cornerstone of holistic student development. This program is designed to create a supportive and nurturing environment where students can forge meaningful connections with both their peers and a dedicated faculty member, often referred to as an advisor.

Through regular meetings, discussions, and activities, advisors guide students in their academic journey, helping them set goals, monitor progress, and navigate challenges. Beyond academics, the advisory program fosters social and emotional growth, equipping students with essential life skills such as effective communication, problem-solving, and self-awareness.

GWA advisors play a pivotal role in promoting a sense of belonging and inclusivity within the school community. By addressing individual needs, providing mentorship, and cultivating a strong sense of community, the advisory program empowers students to thrive academically, personally, and socially, setting the stage for their success both in school and in life.
