The Guidance Counsellor
The Guidance Counsellor plays a hugely important role in the careers of our students. He or she will work with students at a number of points to help students choose subjects and college courses or careers.
In First Year the guidance counsellor will work with students to help clarify the subjects that they feel are their strong points. At this stage students will also find out more about what options are available to them depending on different subjects.
In Senior Cycle the guidance counsellor works with students to select the subjects that may guide a student towards a particular college course or career. The guidance counsellor will also help the students through the CAO application process.
In addition to this, the guidance counsellor meets students on a one-to-one basis to provide extra support or pastoral counselling.
