Guidance Team

Bishop Macdonell's Guidance Team has a mission to provide support for students through personal counselling, career information and by helping to prepare students for their important High School transitions, from grade 8 through to their post-secondary lives.
Counsellors visit classrooms, meet with students, and offer presentations that provide students with the resources they need to make informed, courageous and honourable decisions for their educational, apprenticeship or workplace pathway.
