Counselling Corner

A Message from Mr. Sales

School work, friends, teachers, siblings, parents, social media… sometimes life can be a lot. Families and students at Bon Accord Community School are dealing with a fast paced, complex world. Positive mental health is fundamental for thriving.  Each individual child has their own story and brings with them their own perspective.  As the school counselor it is my goal to listen to that perspective and empower students to attain their goals socially, emotionally and academically.

As the school counselor I can assist families and students by facilitating communication, emotionally and socially supporting students while in the building and by connecting families with supports found in the community.

Topics:

-Interpersonal issues (Student/Student, Teacher/Student, Parent/Student, Sibling/Student)

-Death/loss of a loved one

-Divorce

-Crisis situation (fire, moving, accident)

If you or your child are looking for assistance remember that you are not the only ones who benefit from the support.  Last year over 1/5 of the students at BACS accessed one to one or group support.  Referrals to see me can be made by students, teachers, parents or administrators. Discussions are confidential however, communication between all parties involved is highly encouraged.

Please e mail me at gregg.sales@sturgeon.ab.ca or call me at the school (780) 921-3559 if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Gregg Sales
