Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! My
name is Kathy Lank and I am pleased to be
your school counsellor. I am at the school on
days 1, 3 and 5 in the school cycle. It is my
hope that this school year will be full of
successful experiences for all students.
School counselling services provide supports
and resources to students, their
families/caregivers and to educators. The
primary goal of school counselling services is
to enhance and promote student learning. This
may include individual, group and whole class
work to provide both an intervention and
I am looking forward to attending professional
development, along with my colleagues, from
Dr. Stuart Shanker October 1 on Self-Reg
Self-Reg provides us not with just the why, but
also with next steps on “the how.”
How to distinguish between maladaptive and
growth-promoting modes of managing stress;
Between misbehaviour and stress-behaviour;
Between laziness and processes deep inside
the brain that impede learning or effort.
And what to do about it.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any
questions or concerns about your child.
