The Guidance Office is responsible for providing a caring, compassionate environment that is inviting to all who enter. As guidance counsellors and educators, our role has been organized into three distinct areas:

  • student development;
  • interpersonal development; and
  • career development as it relates to pathway planning.

Our counsellors are equipped to provide ongoing academic, social/emotional, and pathway planning supports for our students. We encourage students to take an active role as vibrant, positive members of our school community and lifelong learners.

Guidance Counsellors are teachers who assist students in acquiring the knowledge, skills and attitudes to:

  • Design a personalized educational plan
  • Demonstrate effective personal and social skills
  • Develop a framework for realistic life and career planning in a constantly changing world

The following supports are available for all students:

  • Access to the Internet as well as other support software, interest inventories
  • Labour trends
  • Job search resources
  • Personal Counselling
