School Counsellors play a crucial role in supporting students' academic, social, and emotional development. Our School Counsellors support students, families and staff in the following ways:

  • Social and Emotional Support:
    • Providing counselling services to help students navigate personal, family, and social issues.
    • Support during difficult times, such as family problems, peer conflict, or emotional struggles.
    • Counsellors can also help build self-esteem, self-confidence, boundary setting, social skills and goal setting.
  • Crisis Intervention:
    • Responding to immediate crises, such as accidents, violence, or other emergencies affecting the school community.
    • Collaborating with other school staff and community resources to provide support during crises.
  • Academic Support:
    • Assisting students in developing effective study habits and time management skills.
    • Identifying and addressing academic challenges, such as learning disabilities or behavioural issues.
    • Collaborating with teachers and parents to create academic intervention plans.
  • Collaboration with Stakeholders:
    • Working closely with teachers, administrators, and parents to support students holistically.
    • Collaborate with community resources, such as Alberta Health Services, FCSS, Family Resource Hubs, Family Supports for Children with Disabilities (FSCD), and FASD Alberta to provide additional support.
