Parents and students are encouraged to make an appointment to meet with a Course Counsellor to discuss their students program for 2017. The appointments will enable students, parents and a counsellor to have a conversation in regards to subject selections and possible career paths. All students must complete their Career Action Plan prior to meeting with a counsellor, this plan helps students to outline their career goals and also records all students qualifications and achievements.
