Welcome to the Guidance page.  We are so very fortunate at Avondale that we have ARPI!!! While the TDSB has redeployed/renamed/eliminated all Guidance Councillors from elementary schools, Arpi, with her vast experience in the area, has gladly taken on the additional responsibility and workload to support our grade 7 and 8 students (and their parents) with this very important work of planning for High School. Here we will post information and links for students and parents/guardians to support students in the areas of academic, overall well-being and career/life planning.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact Arpi at, DImitra at or Michael at
