Counselling & Family Supports

Family-School Liaison Counsellor

Students experiencing emotional, social or academic challenges receive day-to-day support from the classroom teachers. Our Family-School Liaison Counsellor (FSLC) is available to provide more specialized support for children and families, and can also connect families with a network of support agencies. A referral/consent form is available in the office.

The FSLC Program creates a valuable link between home, school and other agencies as required. The program provides services directly to the child and family at their home, the school or a mutually agreed upon community site. These services are free and available to any family with students attending the Holy Spirit Catholic School Division.
