School Guidance and Counselling

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter discusses guidance for pupils in their whole person development on an individual as well as class basis, and describes the roles and functions of class teachers in Hong Kong as guidance teachers. On an individual level, it holds that the personal attributes and attitudes of the class teacher facilitate the development of a personal teacher-pupil relationship which will help the pupils enhance their self-esteem and serve as a basis for initial counselling. On a class level, the class teacher facilitates the collective growth and development of the whole class by establishing a positive class culture, showing care for maladapted pupils, and planning and carrying out year-long whole person development programmes.
