COUNSELLING

Guiding the whole student.

Counsellors are the crucial link between students, teachers, dormitory staff, homestay families, and parents. Counsellors advise students on academics, post-secondary planning, health, and personal well-being, as well as work on emotional / relational problem solving skills. The counselling staff provides timely emotional support to young minds finding their way to adulthood.

Bodwell's counsellors are multilingual.  Whether it be Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, students and parents can comfortably talk with the counsellors in their preferred languages. From the first day to the final departure, Bodwell students find the support they need from our counsellors.  For a listing of our counsellors, click here.

THE BRIDGE

Counsellors are the bridge between teachers, dorm staff, homestay families, parents and students.  They make sure everyone sees the same picture of the student so there is no miscommunication.

TIMELY SUPPORT

Counsellors offer timely support to students going through the rigors of academic and adolescent life.  Counsellors can identify and rectify problems early to ensure students have the best chance in succeeding at Bodwell and beyond.

MULTILINGUAL

It goes a long way when you can share your thoughts and feelings in a common language.  Students can feel comfortable knowing that their counsellor understands them exactly without misinterpretation or different cultural contexts.

HEALTH / MEDICAL

Looking out for student health & well-being.

The school nursing office is open 6 days per week on regular school days to attend to minor illnesses and injuries and organize care in the community as needed. Our full-time nurse provides medical assessment, treatment, and recommendations as well as accompanies students on medical visits. There are also several walk-in medical clinics located near Bodwell that provide the highest standard of care.  We have established strong partnerships with various community health providers, such as a medical clinic, a dentist office, a local pharmacy and a physiotherapy clinic nearby. For emergency and acute care services, the Lions Gate Hospital is less than 15 minutes away.  Lion's Gate's doctors are world class and it is one of five neurosurgery centres in B.C. We are also paired with a Public Health Nurse, who provides immunizations to Grade 9 students every year and supports our nursing staff in a continuous manner.

When international students arrive, they are provided with private medical insurance. The plan covers services such as hospital accommodation, ambulance transport, prescription medicine, emergency medical treatment and some dental procedures (within various prescribed amounts). After 3 months, students are enrolled in the BC Medical Services Plan, which for a small monthly fee, provides coverage for medical visits and hospital expenses with the exception of prescription drugs and medical aids.
