I often tell students that my number one job is to do everything I can to make sure their school days go well for them. School counsellors work towards the well-being of the “total student” by promoting the emotional, intellectual, social, academic and career development of all students. This takes place in the following ways:
- Whole School and classroom activities, lessons and presentations promoting skills for academic and personal success.
- Individual and small group guidance or counselling to help build skills or address issues of concern or difficulty.
- Connecting students to resources within the school or community which may help foster their success.
- Working with the school team to help students with any challenges they may be facing.
