Tips of the Week.jpg


TA Tip(s) of the week


This week is Anti-Bullying Week. It is a great opportunity to have a conversation with your advisees about bullying.  A great practice is to remind them of the many people they can turn to for help. If you need tips on how to discuss bullying with your advisees, you can ask your guidance counsellor. 


Have a great week everyone!
