Guidance

Every student at John McCrae is assigned a guidance counsellor, based on the first letter of their last name. We work with students both individually and in a variety of small groups to support them with any and all difficulties they may be facing. To book an appointment with your counsellor, simply come to the front desk in Student Services - room 220 - and ask to see your counsellor. Please note we are more than happy to meet with parents as well!
