Course Planning
 
Students may seek assistance from the counsellors when selecting courses each year and determining occupational and post-secondary institution entrance requirements. Counsellors post up to date information for students on twitter @lamcounselling.
 
Personal Concerns
 
 Counsellors are available to discuss questions or concerns as they arise. For example:

We understand the social aspect of school is important for students and you miss connecting with friends, teachers and other supportive adults in the building. We are all available through email and telephone. Please don't hesitate to reach out and there are some great resouces posted for you on this website as well.
