The Student Services Centre is open to all students and parents from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM. Guidance Counsellors assist students with personal, social, educational and career planning concerns. They also conduct classroom visits and assembly workshops for students in all grades.
Every student at Northview Heights is assigned to a guidance counsellor with whom he/she can discuss personal issues. A social worker, psychologist and child and youth care worker are also available for consultation.
Students and parents can make appointments with specific counsellors.
Our programs and activities help students understand and reflect on their learning styles so that they develop the habits and skills necessary for lifelong learning. We teach students to take responsibility for their own behaviour and we promote self-discipline. Students learn positive ways of interacting with and caring for others through activities that promote non-aggressive problem resolution, social responsibility, and co-operation. We give students the necessary tools to make informed decisions to ensure the successful transition to post-secondary education, training or work.
