As we move forward with the Campus Development Project, I have asked Misty Shipley, our new Director of Finance and Operations, to provide regular updates and progress reports in the Tin Tuc so the community is aware of where we are in the process. Please read her update here.
Our university counsellors, Brenda Manfredi and Casey Nolan-Jackson, are working hard with our grade 12 students and parents to keep the admissions process on track. They hosted an information-filled session on Wednesday night, September 6 and hope to host 150 colleges and universities this year from all over the world to meet with our students and their parents. We have had a few visits already including a U.S. university mini fair on Tuesday evening, September 5 in the Theatre attended by over 150 parents and students.
In the meantime, all of our counsellors are injecting new life into our new Connections programme in the MS/HS with a complete social-emotional curriculum for our students in grades 6-12. Kirk Jackson and Paula Wilcox, our new counsellors in grades 6-9, are very much involved in this new programme as well as we work to provide support in all aspects of our students’ world of academics and non-academics.
In the ES, Ms. Anissa and Mr. Dylan are aiming at all students via the curriculum which promotes personal, social and emotional well-being, as well as counselling services for individual students who require additional support. New students are a focus right now and they are holding small group sessions to help with the transition. Small groups are also happening during lunch and recess times.
We recognise and promote the importance of the social-emotional well being of our students, knowing how critical this is to their academic success. This is why we dedicate time and faculty to this programme. And we are fortunate to have a team of highly experienced and talented counsellors.
