Elementary Counselling


At elementary school level the purpose of counselling is to help students with personal and social issues through:

  • providing individual and group sessions with students,
  • conducting classroom sessions,
  • consulting with teachers, parents and community partners,
  • providing parent and teacher education, and
  • working with school based teams and serving as school contact person for outside agencies

Contact Procedures

  • It is preferable that students are discussed with counsellors prior to formal referral.
  • Services can be activated with the “Referral for Counselling Assistance” form by school staff.
  • Students may also request a visit with the counsellor.
