Mrs. Jones is our Grade 8, 9 and 10 school counsellor and Mrs. Waterstreet is our Grade 11 and 12 school counsellor. 

Their role is to promote emotional, social, and personal development in our students.  They help students to overcome any struggles or difficulties they might have. They collaborate with students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community agencies. The BC Ministry of Education describes some of their many functions as including “counselling students, their families and the community to foster growth in the students’ self esteem, individual responsibility, and in skills such as decision making”.  Their goal is to to help students be prepared for the transition into life after high school.

Some of the services our School Counsellors offer:

  • Career Guidance
