Guidance - Who are we?



To develop within our students the knowledge, skills and values which reflect our Catholic faith and will prepare them for their future career paths.



The goals of the guidance and career education program is that the students:
understand the concepts related to lifelong learning, interpersonal relationships (including responsible citizenship), and career planning; develop learning skills, social skills, a sense of social responsibility, and the ability to formulate and pursue educational and career goals; apply this learning to their lives and work in the school and the community.

The goals have been organized into three areas of knowledge and skills: student development, interpersonal development, and career development. In each area, the knowledge and skills required will change as students proceed through elementary and secondary school. Although sometimes distinct, these areas of guidance and career education program.

Student Development


Students will learn to set and achieve learning goals both inside and outside school, manage their own learning, and acquire the habits and skills necessary for success both inside and outside school. As students develop the ability to understand how they learn, recognize areas that need improvement, set goals for improvement, monitor their own learning, and become independent learners, they are acquiring the basic habits and skills they will require for lifelong learning.

Interpersonal Development


Students will learn to demonstrate self-discipline, take responsibility for their own behaviour, acquire the knowledge and skills required for getting along with others both within and beyond the school, and choose ways of interacting positively with others in a variety of situations. They will also learn about thoughtful and non-violent problem resolution, social responsibility, working cooperatively with others, and caring about others.

Career Development


Students will learn how to make informed and appropriate choices to ensure their successful transition from elementary to secondary school and from secondary school to further education, training, and work. This involves the acquisition of the knowledge and skills required to make informed and responsible decisions at key transition points throughout elementary and secondary school and in preparation for leaving secondary school. Students will also assess their interests, competencies, and achievements; explore and evaluate education and career opportunities; make appropriate choices from among those opportunities; collect and interpret information; set goals; and create and evaluate plans for the future.
