At JB, our Learning Resource Centre exemplifies the school motto, 'Ever Forward,' by equipping our students with special needs, with the required skill set to achieve their full, true potential. A referral to the LRC may be made by the Principal, the Primary Supervisor or the Class Teacher. Our qualified counselor and special educator then take the referral forward in the student's best interests.
The LRC at the school comprises of the Counseling Department and the Remedial Centre (Centre for Special Needs).
The J B Petit High School admits girls irrespective of their disability or special education needs, provided that the school deems it possible to meet their needs adequately without unduly prejudicing the education and welfare of other students.
The Centre for Special Needs at the school is responsible for the early identification, informal assessment and remedial intervention for students with special education needs.
The Centre for Special Needs is not a coaching center, extra class or a substitute for curriculum. It is a facilitation center for students who have special needs till they are able to independently perform according to their age and grade level.
"If you are tuned out of your emotions, you will be poor at reading them in others" - Daniel Goleman
Students who face issues beyond academics- be they psychological, emotional, social or behavioural, are assured of being heard and helped at JB.
Our qualified and experienced counselor provides and conducts individual, as well as group counseling sessions, for all primary and secondary children referred to the counseling department. The counselor also engages students individually in a manner that is designed to help students reach a greater awareness of who they are, and their unique potentialities, there by assisting students to accentuate their strengths and work on their difficulties in an atmosphere of care and concern.
In addition to the counseling sessions, a comprehensive classroom guidance program is conducted at all grade levels. This program, which is uniquely tailored to meet the developmental needs at various age levels, enhances life skills, and boosts the socio-emotional literacy and well being of our students.
