  • Transitions (new students, adjustment to kg, moving up to FMIS)
  • Providing community resources to families in need.

How can your child visit the counselor?

Whatever a student says to me is confidential with the exception of student safety. If a child is in danger (or is a danger to themselves or others), I must seek appropriate help.
