Where are we located and what are your hours?

We are located behind the main office. Just walk though the front doors, head down the hallway to the left of the office (affectionately known as the "zebra hallway") due to the mural on the wall. Our office door is the 4th door to the right in the hallway and clearly marked.

Guidance counsellors are available from 8:30 AM until 3:00 PM Monday through Thursday and from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM on Friday.

What services do we provide?

Guidance Counsellors can:

  • resolve, deal with or mediate any personal or family issues
  • provide you with outside agency support or referral
  • help you to choose a career path
  • aid you in course selection that matches your goals and ensure graduation
  • help provide access to academic help
  • provide detailed post secondary information and entrance requirements
  • inform and assist with scholarship, bursary, grant or loan requirements for post secondary education

When can I see a counsellor?

We want students to get to know their counsellors BEFORE problems arise. Students are encouraged to book a time for any reason and make use of the many services offered, or at least find out who their counsellor is and introduce yourself. No reason is too small or too great to see a counsellor!

You can come to the Student Services Office to book an appointment at the following times:

  • Before school (starting at 8:00 AM)
  • After school (until 3:30 PM)
  • At lunch time
  • During your spare period
  • Note: Friday office hours are 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Do I need an appointment?

To consult with the counsellors about academic, social, vocational, and personal matters, students are encouraged to make an appointment in Student Services. For more information, see the section below. However, we are now accepting a certain amount of Drop-in Appointments! 

What do I need to know about scheduling an appointment?

  • Appointments can be scheduled to a maximum of 10 calendar days in advance.
  • You must wear your lanyard at all times; especially when scheduling an appointment.
  • You can only book an appointment at the times specified under the section above entitled "When can I see a councellor".
  • Full appointments are scheduled with Mrs. Austin (Guidance Secretary) in person at Student Services.
