The Guidance Department at MMHS supports the needs of our school community (parents, students, teachers and community partners) by providing services and organizing activities throughout the school year.

Parents are encouraged to be part of their child's educational and career planning decisions and may contact the Guidance Department for an appointment or interview.

At MMHS, counsellors are in the Guidance and Career Education Department to assist students to acquire the skills, knowledge and abilities to:

know and appreciate themselves
Such insight and knowledge will help students in understanding their value as people and in recognizing and making use of their interests and aptitudes.

relate effectively to others
The leads to positive interpersonal relationships, a better understanding of self, effectiveness in all life roles and employability skills.

develop appropriate educational goals
It is important that students develop educational plans that are flexible and consistent with their needs, interests and abilities.

explore career alternatives
In the process of career development, students learn more about themselves and a variety of career alternatives, practise decision-making and goal setting skills needed for making thoughtful choices for their life.
