Both guidance counsellors are happy to assist students in any way they can. Students should primarily consult their assigned guidance counsellors in order to maintain a sense continuity and consistency. The offices of the guidance counsellors can be found on the second floor.

Students continuing their studies after their third year will have the same guidance counsellor as before. However, these students will be placed in groups NA and NB as other third-year students complete their studies after the third period, and the guidance counsellors of the students in N groups will also act as their form teachers.

With your guidance counsellor you will design a plan for your high school studies. You can have this study plan checked and also changed at given times. If you wish to change your subjects, you must always negotiate with the guidance counsellor first.

The information channel for guidance counselling is Wilma messages as well as the weekly bulletin. The guidance counsellor is also a contact person for guardians regarding study-related matters.

The guidance counsellor offices are on the 2nd floor. Scheduling times can be booked via the appointment link found in Wilma's press releases.
