Guidance and Student Services

The goals of the Student Services Department are to provide students with opportunities to:

a) Formulate education plans consistent with their intellectual abilities, interests and personal goals.

b) Learn more about the world of work and employment opportunities suited to their interests and abilities.

c) Come to a fuller understanding of self, develop or enhance a positive self-image and explore ways of establishing successful relationships with others.

Counsellors accomplish these aims through personal counseling, group instruction and various administrative functions. They also draw on a variety of community, medical, educational and career resources as needed.

Each grade level is dealt with differently, reflecting the developmental needs of that particular age group. The focus in grade nine is on time management and study skills. Each student also meets with his/her assigned academic counsellor to start a portfolio. Parents are invited to contact counsellors at any time during the school year to arrange interviews in order to discuss matters of concern.
