Support services are generally delivered through individual counseling, group counseling, and classroom education.
A Great Year
It continues continues to be another exciting year as we proactively work with our students to find personal success. Our student services team organize several groups to meet our studentsí needs, such as social skill development, addictions education, anger management, and cultural diversity promotion. Parents and guardians should also stay tuned for available sessions offered throughout the year. Please contact our school counsellor, Ms. Lynn White, regarding counseling initiatives.
