By Aaron Humes: Schools may not be physically open, but the work of school counselors is never done.

This week is being observed as School Counselling Awareness Week by the Belize School Counselors’ Association (BSCA) under the theme of Helping Students Navigate a Changing World.

The Association’s membership works directly with students by helping them to examine their abilities, strengths, interests, and talents. They also collaborate with parents, teachers, and other educators to provide an educational system where students can realize their potential and set healthy, realistic, and optimistic aspirations for themselves.   

In a statement marking the opening of the week, the Association says its members provided psychosocial support to the school community by creating functional virtual and distance support platforms for students, parents, and teachers; contributed to the Ministry of Education’s Learner’s Link Distance Learning Packets and Listen Up Radio Show, assisting the Ministry of Human Development to conduct an assessment for their various relief programs, and working with the Ministry of Health’s Mental Response Team.

In 2021, the Association looks forward to addressing the concerns expressed by members regarding the hemp industry and the reopening of schools for face-to-face learning in internal committees formed to discuss these issues. On Friday it will host a virtual check-in for members and non-members to discuss the year’s past.

Following elections on January 27, the president-elect is Maricelli Soberanis, succeeding Khristal Jones who was preceded by Caryl Brannon. The rest of the executive is Secretary, Franese Roches; Treasurer, Roxanne Jones; and Public Relations Officer, Vanessa Morrison.
