(Covid-19) 'Dear Me' in August 2020

This resource was designed for use on the last day of the academic year!
It aims to serve as a reference list for the types of things Guidance Counsellors might have on their mind, immediately before closing the office door and leaving for the summer holidays. In using a tool such as this (which is an example), Guidance Counsellors can make a note of all the major and minor ‘to-dos’ that will help them get started upon return to the role at the start of the next academic year. In this way, Guidance Counsellors can truly ‘let go,’ rest and relax over the break, knowing that a reminder note awaits them upon their return.
