Welcome! Whether you are new to our school or are returning for another school year, I am glad you're here! Our Grades 4-6 school is a wonderful place to be for children and adults. It is my privilege and responsibility as School Counsellor to authentically engage with children and their families in order to foster optimal learning conditions.
