School Guidance and Counselling

Ching Leung Lung

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter discusses how the class teacher can foster pupils’ whole person development within a school context, and describes his/her role and functions within the larger framework of whole school guidance work. The class teacher works under the principal's leadership, collaborates with the discipline and guidance team, communicates with parents, and makes good use of support from professional sectors and the community at large. During parent-teacher conferences, he/she must be able to adopt the appropriate attitude, skills and strategies in interacting with parents of varying backgrounds and temperaments. Where a parent displays threatening or challenging tendencies, the class teacher must also be able to apply the conflict resolution approach effectively, in order to win the parent's support towards helping his/her child's growth.
