Counseling

School Counselors provide students with direct and indirect support in 3 domains: personal, education and career. Student’s personal concerns discussed between Counselor and student are confidential. Education and Career planning includes selecting courses, program planning, graduation requirements, and exploring post-secondary entrance requirements. Counselors will provide appropriate referrals to other in-school, in- district support services and/or outside (non-school) agencies. Students are assigned to Counselors alphabetically by last name. Please email your Counselor to make an appointment:

                   A-G              Mr. Sallos                   joe_sallos@sd33.bc.ca

                   H-N              Ms. Mussell               maryanne_mussell@sd33.bc.ca

                   O-Z              Ms. Hancock              kim_hancock@sd33.bc.ca
