Every elementary school in S.D. #23 presently provides a staff counsellor on a part-time basis. The counsellor supports students who are experiencing emotional, social or behavioural problems at school or at home which affect their learning and personal well-being. The counsellor is available for consultation with staff, administration and parents who wish to discuss concerns about students so that strategies for improvement can be implemented. The counsellor provides referral to community agencies if the student or family requires long-term counselling or therapy. Service is also provided in consultation with parents and teaching staff regarding behavioral strategies and provision of behavioral plans.
Our school counsellor is Mrs. Marni Dobbin. She is at Raymer on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Friday mornings.
