Making An Appointment
During most lunch breaks, the Guidance Office is open for walk-in questions and advice. Appointments can be made at the main office. Students will be given an appointment slip which must be shown to the teacher whose class you will miss. You may also receive an appointment slip in your roll or from your class teacher – don’t be concerned! The Guidance Officer is constantly contacting students to discuss a range of issues, jobs and opportunities. Before you come to your appointment, please get your class teacher to sign the appointment slip. If you can’t make that time, please let the Guidance Officer know beforehand.
If you have a problem, let someone know – a solution maybe easier than you think. You might consider talking to:
