Guidance and Counselling Services

The school counsellor's major task is to work with students, teachers, other student support services staff, outside agencies, and parents to support the social, emotional, behavioural, and intellectual development of all students.

The counsellor works with students on a one to one basis when required, although some student/counsellor interaction may occur in groups.

Referrals to the counsellor come from the students themselves, parents, teachers, and/or other professionals.
