SUPPORT SERVICES AT NORWELL GUIDANCE CENTRE

 The Guidance Centre is located next to the main office at Norwell. The centre houses resources for career planning, apprenticeship, college, university, study skills, community resources, and scholarship/financial awards. Career education resources are also available online.

In addition, counselors are available for individual counselling about courses, careers, or personal matters. Students are encouraged to use these resources often. Through the Guidance Centre, students may make an appointment with the Child & Youth Worker, Community Alcohol & Drug Counselor, and the school nurse.

 LIBRARY The Library Collection is specifically selected to meet student’s academic needs and extracurricular interests. As well as a large book collection, magazines, newspapers, and e-readers, the library is a place for students to study and collaborate. Computers, netbooks, and tablets are available for assignment completion and Internet research. The loan period for books is three weeks. Students are responsible for borrowed material, and any penalties incurred. A formal orientation is held for grade 9 students to introduce them to the library. Research assistance and instruction in the use of resources are available for all grade levels. Materials from other secondary schools and course content videos from the Terry James Resource Centre may be requested through the Teacher-Librarian.

RESOURCE CENTRE – ROOM 111 The Resource Room is located in room 111. It is a place students in the school can access extra help. We have adaptive computer programs (text to speech to help with reading, speech to text to help with writing), a quiet place to calm down, and a teacher that can provide extra help with things such as test preparation, time management, organization, and assignment completion. Many students use the room for their regular class work, or for tests and exams.

COMPUTER LAB The Cross-Curriculum Computer Lab is available for individual students needing to complete course assignments, subject to computer availability and teacher supervision. All students using school computers must comply with the Acceptable Use Policy.  Students will access the computers using their personal ID and password. Each year students receive a $5.00 credit on their printing account. Once the $5.00 is used up, students are required to add money to their account in order to continue printing. Each page costs $0.10. In order to replenish your account please see Mrs.Frayne or Mrs. Douglas.
