Waswanipi School Guidance and Counselling Office

Randy Martin is the head of this department.

The guidance and counseling of students is an integral component of the educational mission of our school. Guidance and counseling services and programs promote the personal/social, educational, and career development of all our students.

Working with Students

school counseling' first professional responsibility is to the students. The educational, academic, career, personal, and social needs of all students within the school setting, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, are the focus in planning and delivering a developmental, comprehensive guidance and counseling program.

The diverse needs of our students may require specific counseling expertise and Randy Martin through his intense knowledge, educational background and expertise in the field provide an exceptional and first class service to our students need.

Please don't hesitate to call or email Randy Martin for more information at:


Working with the School and Community

Our School counselor serve a dual role of educator (through guidance education activities) and counselor (through counseling services) merging when the counsellor is involved in prevention work. All of life’s situations interact with each other. For instance, by addressing a student’s personal/social needs through counselling, the school counsellor simultaneously teaches resiliency skills and affects the student’s readiness for educational challenges. As a result of such interrelationships, the school counsellor supports the integration of guidance and counselling services to address school and community needs.

Randy Martin develops a comprehensive, developmental guidance and counselling program with their school team to meet the needs for their context and specific school population. This development process includes identifying needs, implementing and monitoring programs, as well as adjusting plans based on the developmental needs of students. Regular evaluation of the plan and its implementation are important to ensure the school and community are being served.

Working with Parents/Guardians

Our Professional Counselor Randy Martin understand that Parents/guardians fulfill a primary role in the lives of their children; therefore, collaboration with parents in the best interest of students is a key activity of our school counseling office.

Please understand that our School counseling office do not provide family counseling. The focus of school counseling is on the personal, social, educational, and career development of the student. Providing parents, as appropriate, with accurate information in a caring manner is part of working with minors in a school setting. The open sharing of guidance education activities with parents is separate from the confidential nature of a counseling relationship. Working with students to keep parents appropriately informed without breaching confidentiality is an important responsibility. Our School counseling office bridge communication with parents at every opportunity.

Working with Colleagues and Professional Associates

Our Guidance and counseling services are part of a broader delivery system designed to enhance the success of all learners. Randy Martin establishes and maintains an ongoing professional, collaborative relationship with school staff, clinicians, and other service providers who work with students in our school. Colleagues and professional associates are consulted and provided with professional information related to the educational success and well-being of students who are also in their care.

Educational planning and services are coordinated in the best interest of the student. Information is shared with adherence to appropriate guidelines for confidentiality. Our School counseling office always  work within the limits of the law, within the policies and procedures of school divisions and schools, as well as within the ethical requirements of the association of which we may be members.
