  • Homeroom guidance classes and Knowing Me, Knowing You for Grade 8 students
  • Bullying Prevention classes
  • A peer counselling program
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Healthy Relationship Building
  • Small group counselling for body image, stress and anxiety, self esteem building, etc.
  • Grades 9 and 10 career courses

Operating within the framework of the school’s mission statement and Catholic teaching, the guidance and counselling department works from a team approach with students, parents and school staff.

SMA Peer Support Team

The Peer Support Team (PST) provides students with assistance, education, awareness and help in all of the social and emotional challenges that our students face. The PST is supervised by the school counsellor and consists of caring and supportive students in various roles as peer counsellors and classroom presenters.
