Welcome to the Guidance Department
For Guidance Inquiries and Registration: AMBROGuidance@dpcdsb.org
The Guidance Department can assist with the following:
Students are given assistance in planning their courses of study in order to meet the requirements of the post secondary institutions to which they will apply. All of the necessary applications are processed through this centre. Up-to-date information is available on apprenticeship programs, colleges, universities, private and trade schools. Students are also counselled concerning any academic difficulties they may be experiencing.
Counsellors help in maintaining student records, providing copies of transcripts, and communicating with various educational institutions.
Community Service Hours:
Completing 40 hours of community service is a graduation requirement for all Ontario high school students, mandated by the Ministry of Education. Students will not receive a high school diploma, nor will they be able to proceed to college or university, until this requirement is met.
Approved activities are those performed to support a not-for profit organization, such as a parish church, charitable foundation, food bank, community sports team, arts or cultural association, children’s day camp, or seniors’ residence. The activity must be designed to be of benefit to the community and for an agency that seeks to make a positive and ethical contribution to society.
Working for free for a for-profit organization, for a business or for an individual is not community service. Examples of ineligible activities include walking your neighbour's dog, babysitting young children at home or for your neighbour, working for your family's, neighbour's or friend's business, mowing your neighbour’s lawn or shoveling their snow, activities related to hobbies, or performing duties in the home. Also ineligible are activities that provide direct financial benefit or gain to the student or to the student’s family.
More information about eligible and ineligible activities, including a list of approved community service opportunities, is available in the guidance office.
Students should consult with their guidance counsellors if there is any uncertainty about the validity of a proposed activity. The principal or designate has the right to refuse hours that do not fall within the guidelines.
Students must provide documented evidence of this community service in the form of a letter on the agency’s or organization’s stationery, with a letterhead that includes the agency’s name, address and phone number. This letter should include the following information:
Description of Activity
Number of Hours
Dates of Activity and Completion
Supervisor’s name and contact information
Students in grade 8 will now be able to start accumulating community involvement hours in the summer before they enter grade 9.
