Guidance and Support

Our aim is to provide guidance and information to students /parents/guardians in order to help support our students. We strongly encourage  grade 12 students to visit the grade 12 Teams Channel for important upcoming events, deadlines and updated information for graduating students.   Well-being resources can be found on the counselling website.

Student Timetable Changes

Changing a student timetable, once the school year has commenced, is not encouraged. However, individual circumstances may arise whereby altering a student program may be beneficial to potential academic success. Counsellors are available at school during late August for timetable changes. Requests for timetable changes after school opening will not be considered. Students wishing to change courses after the second week of September may do so only with permission of a parent in consultation with the Counsellor. Our school policy is that all students should complete all courses they enrolled in at the beginning of the year. Permission to drop a course after the third week in October will be considered in exceptional cases following a meeting with parents/guardians, the Counsellor, and the Administrator.  

Counselling & School Based Team

The Counsellors attend to course related and personal counselling of students at both the senior and junior levels. The Counsellors work with teachers, parents, and Administrators in monitoring student performance, progress, and attendance.

The School Based Team (comprised of Counsellors, Administration, District Resource Teacher, and Skills Teacher) meets monthly to identify and review students experiencing problems, develop strategies to assist students, and make referrals to appropriate school and district services.

Safe and Caring Schools - Report It Tool

Hello University Hill Secondary Students!  It’s Mark, your friendly Safe and Caring Schools support worker. You may already be aware of this helpful resource, but I wanted to share with you the link to the Erase/Report It tool. The Erase/Report It tool lets you send a secure, anonymous and confidential message about concerns you’re having to your school or school district’s safe school coordinator, who will follow up on it right away. You do not have to provide your name unless you want to.

Here’s the link to the url:

Here is  also a  PowerPoint that provides some details about how to access and use this tool. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me by email at, come see me in my office beside your counsellors (rm. 1B8-8), or you can speak directly with your teachers, counsellors, or administrators about your concerns and how to report them.
