Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

University counselling interviews

All members of the Leaving Class of 2020 were asked to schedule a 45-minute interview with their assigned counsellor at some point before the March Break in Year 11.

As of today, almost all students in the class have completed their initial interview and some have met with their counsellor several times. If you have not yet been in, please see Ms. Berndsen as soon as possible. It is essential that we meet with all Year 11 students before the end of June in order to incorporate some planning for university into the summer schedule.

The purpose of this initial meeting is to review your academic record, clarify the admission process, discuss possible university and program options, and consider long-term career goals.  Interviews will be scheduled before or after school, at lunch, or whenever possible, in your spare periods.

Before each appointment, give some thought to the specific topics you wish to discuss and questions you wish to ask.  You should not be intimidated–you are not expected to have all the answers at this stage!  The goal of the meetings this year is to produce an initial list of university and degree options, along with a plan of action.

Students who met with their counsellor earlier this year are encouraged to make another appointment before the summer holidays in order to review their plans in light of ongoing research and their updated profile.

We will expect to meet with each student at least once in the fall of Year 12 as well; further appointments with your university counsellor can be scheduled as needed. If your parents would like to be included in a meeting, please contact Ms. Berndsen to make the appropriate arrangements.

All appointments are scheduled through Ms. Berndsen.
