Brooks School Counselling Department

​Our goal is to enable students to improve their lives by engaging in reflection and developing self-regulation and effective problem solving skills.

This is accomplished through course planning, career and vocational guidance, and personal one-to-one counselling. At Brooks Secondary, we are committed to supporting students on an individual basis, as well as acting as a liaison between the school and community based resources. Counselling services are available for all students. Counsellors assist students with academic, career, and personal counselling.

Academic Counselling

Students who are experiencing any difficulty in a course should contact the counsellors for assistance. Counsellors help students with educational planning and course selection to fulfill graduation requirements and prepare for job opportunities, post secondary entrance requirements, and other program requirements.

The 2021-2022 Course Handbook is  here:  Brooks Course Handbook 2021 2022.pdf
The 2021-2022 course selection instructions video is now available.
