The pupil welfare services in the City of Kokkola cover approximately 7,100 children and young people from pre-primary education to general upper secondary schools. Under the Student Welfare Act, school welfare is primarily implemented through preventive pupil welfare services that support the entire school community as a whole. In addition, the pupils and students are entitled to individual welfare services.
The pupil welfare is organised by Soite (Wellbeing services county of Central Ostrobothnia). Pupils, students, guardians and parents can contact the school social workers and school psychologists by e-mail, telephone or Wilma.
