Guidance Department

 

Welcome to the Winston Churchill Guidance Department.  We are here to support students with their academic development, to teach student self-advocacy skills, to support students’ social and emotional development and to assist students with career development by working collaboratively with students, teachers, parents and the community.

 

 

Guidance Counselors assist students with course selection, timetable issues, skill development (e.g. note taking, study skills, time management), post-secondary planning, financial planning (e.g. scholarships and OSAP), career exploration, social/emotional support and settlement support. 

 

Guidance Counselors also help students and parents access the support of our Social Worker, Child & Youth Worker, Child & Youth Counsellor and Settlement Worker.  If you would like more information about these services, please meet with your guidance counsellor.

NEW! As per direction from the Ministry of Education, all TDSB schools, including WInston Churchill C.I. will be closed from March 14 until further notice, amid ongoing concerns about coronavirus. The Guidance department announcements will be posted in our Google Classroom. To get more information on community service hours, scholarships, job opportunities, summer and night school, and how to apply to college and university, please sign up for the following Google Classrooms:

Welcome Grade 9 Students

Welcome incoming grade 9 students!  We are excited to have you join our Winston Churchill family.  The next four year of school will be very memorable. We look forward to helping you successfully transition to high school.  

 

Head Start to High School!

 

Winston Churchill will be offering incoming grade 9 students an orientation program to introduce our new students to the school.  This is an excellent opportunity for students to become familiar with the school and to make friends. Head Start to High School takes place during the last week of August for one-day from 9:00 to 12:30. 

Grade 9 Summer Institute

 

All students entering grade 9 at Winston Churchill C.I. in September 2020 will be given the opportunity to enroll in our summer institute program that would allow them to earn a high school credit BEFORE they even begin grade 9!  Students will engage in activities that will:  

 

 

  • promote and build Literacy and Numeracy Skills  
  • prepare them for time management and planning skills and strategies, 
  • introduce them to the effective and creative use of digital art production,  
  • develop and build leadership skills.
