The School Counsellor works as part of the CCS team in supporting, enriching and nurturing the attainment of the School Mission and the School Wide Learner Expectations. The School Counsellor provides services to students in the form of individual sessions, group discussions or classroom workshops, as well as providing career awareness and university counselling.
The school counsellor works collaboratively with staff, students and parents to provide CCS students the following:
- The knowledge and evidence that every student is valuable and is treated with dignity and respect.
- All students’ ethnic, cultural, racial differences are considered, embraced and celebrated in the design and delivery of school counselling services.
- All students can expect that school is a safe and nurturing environment.
- A positive school environment by encouraging collaboration among counsellors, teachers, administrators, parents and the community to further student achievement.
The School Counsellor is available to meet with students and families by appointment. Students may be referred to the school counsellor by a staff member, self-referral and/or by their parent/guardian.
