The guidance office is a comfortable and welcoming environment for students and families—a place where you can obtain information and support. The secondary school guidance department serves the school community in a variety of ways: ​

·         Supports students in academic planning and course selection

·         Helps students seek out special pathways programs in secondary school that support their learning styles, interests and needs

·         Helps individual students to envision a plan for post-secondary and target some short- and long-term goals

·         Provides information about all post-secondary and career pathways

·         Supports students in establishing effective study habits and exam preparation

·         Coaches in career/life planning, including college and university scholarship application process

·         Supports students with life skills like decision-making, problem-solving, conflict resolution, stress and time management and relationship awareness

·         Provides personal support and referrals to community resources



College and university rep visits to O.S.S.

Grade 12 students who are considering college or university next year may be interested to hear presentations by college and university reps who will discuss things like:  campus life, scholarships, programs, residence, etc.  Look through the calendar and, if you are interested in attending any presentations, sign up in Guidance.  You will notice that some visits have been scheduled over the lunch-hour.  Usually the representative will set up a display in the front forum area and you will be able to ask questions and/or pick up a viewbook at that time.

This year, OSS is pleased to be hosting:

 * APSIP, the Aboriginal Post-Secondary Information Program on Tuesday, October 25th.

The University Information Program (UIP) is being held this year at Twin Lakes Secondary School on Thursday October 25, 2018, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

College Information Program (CIP) will be held at Georgian College, Barrie Campus on Friday, October 26, 2018. There will be a sign-up list in Guidance for students who are interested in attending.

Stay tuned for a list of university and college liaison reps who will be visiting OSS over the next few months.
