The Student Services department at Windsor Park Collegiate provides service
delivery in a number of ways. It embraces a model which reflects and supports
the varying needs of students from their time of entry through to transition to
career or post secondary study. The following services are available for
students and their families.
Student services personnel are available to assist students in achieving
academic success. This can be accomplished in a number of ways. Students may be
supported within the confines of the classroom with the help of an educational
assistant or they may be scheduled directly in the Academic Centre.
Academic Centre supports individual students in achieving academic success. In
collaboration with teachers, students and guardians, curriculum adaptations are
developed to suit the students’ needs. Student services personnel work
one-to-one with students or with small groups of students at a time that best
suits the student’s timetable. Educational assistants are also placed in the
classrooms to assist teachers in meeting the special needs of our students.
Students are encouraged to take ownership of their own educational direction.
At the same time, we recognize that many students may need assistance with such
things as course selections, goal setting and with exploring post- secondary
alternatives. Student services personnel are available to provide this
Career Exploration and Readiness
From the time students enter high school, some of their thinking should be
directed toward their future career planning and preparedness. Windsor Park
Collegiate has an overall plan which is intended to provide students with a
variety of activities and experiences relating to this goal. Student services
personnel are available to assist students in exploring career options, taking
interest inventories and with furthering their understanding of their own
talents, skills and abilities.
Students may explore personal concerns in confidence. We also work closely
with many community resources and Divisional personnel in areas such as social
work, psychology, speech and language, as well as occupational and
physiotherapy. Parents who have concerns regarding such issues as transition to
a new school, bullying, racism or other aspects relating to the emotional
well-being of their child are also encouraged to work together with Student
Students may request assistance themselves by making an appointment to speak
with one of the Student Services team. Parents can contact members of the team
directly by calling (204) 256-7316.
