In our ongoing quest to support, know and inspire our students, and in response to parent feedback, CDS has created the new position of Middle School Guidance teacher, counsellor and learning strategist as part of the Student Services team.
In the past, Middle School students have had access to guidance and counselling in the Burge Family Student Services Centre located on the second floor of the Senior School, which could be intimidating for some.
