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.
R. B. RUSSELL WORLD OF WORK CENTRE
At the World of Work Centre students can access a number of resources. We help you develop employability skills for the present and the future.
If you're looking for a part-time or summer job, staff will guide you to the job binder and online job search options. We help you create a resume and a cover letter. Once you've secured an interview we can help you prepare and practice responses for commonly asked questions such as: What are your strengths? What are your future plans?
When you're ready to talk about your future plans, come to the World of Work Centre to learn about university, college and apprenticeship options. We'll connect you with future learning opportunities through tours and speakers. Also find out about ways to fund future studies through scholarships and bursaries. As you try to figure out why you're on this planet, you may want to volunteer, job shadow or spend a few weeks on work experience. High school students can earn one volunteer credit. Life/Work credits are available at every grade level.
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.
