Student Life

THE GUIDANCE COUNSELLOR

The Guidance Counsellor offers a program of activities and services that facilitates the personal, social, educational, and career development of students at all grade levels.  The school counsellor provides individual, group instruction, consultations and referrals to assist students and their families in making informed decisions and responsible plans. 

THE GUIDANCE OFFICE

The Guidance Office has an “open door” policy. Appointments may also be made by students and parents. Information regarding course selection, post-secondary studies, tutoring, career counseling, and social emotional issues is available. The co-operative education program facilitated through the guidance office helps students see the relationship between the curriculum and life outside of school. This program allows students to earn credits towards their OSSD.  

LIBRARY FACILITIES

AIS Library is open each school day for student use. It is an excellent library facility complete with reference room, seminar rooms, study carrel areas and a newly refurbished computer area.  The selection of titles available is quite comprehensive and new volumes are being added constantly. The Teacher-Librarian or staff members who are on duty are anxious to be of assistance in finding suitable books, magazines or papers for all students wishing to make use of this facility, whether their reading is for research, reference or recreation.

STUDENT AND PARENT CODE of RESPONSIBILITIES

Students have an increased number of responsibilities as they proceed through the school system.  These include:

  • taking responsibility for their learning
  • taking responsibility for managing their behavior
  • getting along with others in a variety of settings in the school
  • demonstrating social responsibility
  • developing and setting educational and career goals

Parents have an important role to play in their children’s learning. They can encourage their children by:

  • working collaboratively with the school supporting and helping students with critical decision making
  • supporting their student’s goal setting activities

Students are to be treated with respect and dignity.  In return, they must demonstrate respect for themselves, for others and for the responsibilities of citizenship through acceptable behavior.  Respect and responsibility are demonstrated when students:

  • come to school prepared, on time and ready to learn
  • show respect for themselves, for others and for those in authority
  • refrain from bringing anything to school that may compromise the safety of others
  • follow the established rules and take responsibility for their own actions
