COUNSELLING SERVICES

Students at Belmont are supported by a counselling staff whose members are experienced teachers as well as counsellors.

Students are assigned in September, according to surname alphabet, to a counsellor. 

PUBLIC HEALTH NURSE

The Public Health Nurse is in attendance at school on Tuesdays. The nurse is available to students for personal health and safety concerns and referral to community health resources.

Students may book appointments with the nurse by placing a note in her mail drawer in the main office. Ms. Taylor may also be contacted at the Western Communities Health Unit, 2782 Millstream Road, or by phoning 478-1757.

See the Vancouver Island Heath Authority Prevention Services flyer for more information on the School Health Program.

SCHOOL LIAISON OFFICER

Belmont has a school R.C.M.P. liaison officer who is available on request as a resource to classroom teachers, administrators and students. See a counsellor to get more details.

FOOD SERVICES

The cafeteria offers offers freshly prepared soups, sandwiches, hot entrees, veggies and dip, scenes, muffins and desserts. Milk, juices and ice cream are also available. Food is great; prices are even better.

Interac is available to serve you. See you at break or lunch. ($10 & $20 Munch cards are available.)

LIBRARY

The library is open from 8:15 - 3:45 on Monday through Thursday and 8:15 - 2:15 on Friday. Most of the resource materials may be borrowed on a 14-day basis. A photocopy machine is available for student use. Computer access is available for electronic research and word processing. The Belmont Virtual Library is available 24 hours a day.

LOCKERS

Students are expected to use assigned lockers unless reassigned by a vice-principal. Locker rental is included in student fees. A student may use his/her own lock provided the school lock is returned and the combination and serial number of the private lock is recorded in the office. The locker is the property of  the school and as such may be opened by designated staff if there are reasonable grounds to suspect the presence of stolen property, illegal drugs or weapons. Displays with offensive words or pictures that promote racism, sexism violence, or illicit products are inappropriate in school lockers. Locker privileges are granted by the school and may be removed if necessary. PLEASE RESIST THE TEMPTATION TO SHARE LOCKERS OR TO MARK THEM PERMANENTLY.

TELEPHONES

Public telephones are located in the mall area adjacent to the general office for students' personal use. Students must assume responsibility for having the appropriate change for the public telephone. Access to a school telephone is limited to emergency and medical purposes or for bona fide school business authorized by a teacher or other staff member.

LOST AND FOUND

The Lost and Found is located in the main office. Valuables should be left at home. Under no condition should valuables (watches, jewellery, wallets) be left in the P.E. change rooms.

TEXTBOOK LOAN

Textbooks will be issued by your subject teacher. Take care of your textbooks as you will be charged for any damages and/or the replacement cost of lost textbooks.

WORK EXPERIENCE

Work Experience is an excellent opportunity for students to explore career options. Students in Grades 10 and 11 may start work experience at any time. The work experience hours ranging from informational interviews, job shadows and 30 hour work placements are accumulative and can be credited towards the mandatory Community Connections part of Grad Transitions and Work Experience 12A and 12 B. This valuable program allows students to gain a better understanding of job and career requirements. See the Career Centre for more information or visit their website.
