Peer counsellors are trained to help other students, usually junior students. Consider applying if you are responsible, self-motivated, caring, interested in helping people and willing to try new experiences. Peer Counsellors are interested in serving other students, wish to improve their communication skills, and understand the importance of their position as role models. The required training sessions are held after school on a Monday or Tuesday. Students also need to be available at other times outside of school time to meet with students and attend events. All peer counsellors will participate in the Grade 8 orientation on the first day of school. Peer Counsellors are chosen through an application process. An interview may be required. See Ms. Alvares or your counsellor for an application form.
