The Guidance Office at R.B. Russell High School serves students in the areas of personal, medical and spiritual needs. Community program information for health, financial and cultural needs are also served by Student Guidance Services.
GUIDANCE AND COUNSELLING
The Guidance and Counselling department includes professionally trained counsellors assigned to specific program areas. Students are encouraged to meet with their counsellor throughout the year. Students can confidentially discuss and receive support for academic and personal issues that may influence school success.
Additional supports include an in-school AFM counsellor, Mount Carmel Teen Clinic on Tuesday afternoons, a School Resource Officer (police officer) and other community resources. Together, we are here to help you achieve your vision of academic and personal success.
The Resource program operates within the Student Support Services model, helping schools to meet the requirements of the Public Schools Amendment Act and Appropriate Educational Programming in Manitoba. The resource teacher is a member of the school based Student Support team that actively problem solves and supports classroom teachers in the provision of direct and consultative services so the needs of all exceptional learners can be better met in the classroom. At R. B. Russell Vocational High School, the emphasis of the resource program is to provide proactive and inclusive support to both the academic and vocational staff and their students within the mainstream.
