Have you ever seen an average person, with no experience in rough conditions navigate a thick forest without using a map and compass? It’s hard to imagine the difficulty he will have getting out in one piece. In Xavier School, students need a compass to get through the thick jungle of school life, which includes homework, deadlines, requirements and many more. This compass, also known as a mentor, is the one who acts as a guide and supports us through this thick jungle. This year, the jungle is as thick as ever, and thus, Xavier, in support of its thrust, Cura Personalis, came up with a mentoring program to guide and prepare, particularly, the grade 7 students for the even thicker jungle: High School. Even with just a few mentoring sessions done, many grade 7 students have formed opinions on this program. Let’s look at some of them.
Douglas: Do you think that the mentoring session will help you in your
Student: Yes, because if you have any questions or troubles, it is
so convenient to approach the mentor, or even classmates.

anywhere and anytime I want about my problems and my
Douglas: Would you still want to have mentoring sessions next year?
Student: Yes, because it can help students with their problems.
In my personal opinion as a Grade 7 student, this mentoring program will help not only the Grade 7 pupils, but all the students in Xavier in progressing through the mental, emotional and social aspects of life. It can also establish a better relationship among schoolmates and better ties with the teachers and mentors. Most of all, it will help us discover our innermost selves, which will aid us in dealing with our day-to-day problems, particularly in our school lives.
