 Administration

Banting believes that open, respectful, two-way communication builds relationships and enhances student success.

Student Supports

 Guidance
 The guidance department runs several programs in the school to support students and as well, each student is assigned a guidance counsellor, divided alphabetically by student’s last name. While sometimes circumstances cause the alphabetical division to change, usually the student can expect to have the same counsellor throughout the 4 years so that a connection can be formed. Individually, students may access their counsellor by signing up for an appointment at a time period of their choice to receive support for questions or concerns regarding academics, post secondary and pathway planning, career exploration, conferences, employment opportunities, scholarships and any topics dealing with social and emotional issues and mental wellness. For some issues requiring more counselling, the guidance counsellor may be the first step and additional support.
 Student Success

Students work closely with their assigned Learning Support Teacher (LST) in a quiet learning environment. Skills such as organization, test preparation, studying, and time management are a strong focus to lead students to success. Students are encouraged to check in often with their LST for continued academic support in rooms 204 and 206.

 

The Student Success Team is comprised of the School Administration, Student Success Teacher (SST), Guidance Counsellors, Social Worker/Attendance Counsellor and Learning Support Teachers (LST).The team works hard to ensure that all students have every opportunity for success by monitoring student progress, attendance and behaviour. Students at risk of failing courses will be supported by the Student Success Team to work towards earning their credits. A concerted effort from classroom teachers, the Student Success Team and the parent/guardian to support each student’s success is an essential part of this program. The Banting Resource Program is devoted to helping students on Individual Education Plans
