  • The Loyola school community is pleased to offer the services of a School Social Worker.  All HCDSB Social workers are registered members of the College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.  Our school social worker offers a variety of services, such as advocacy, assessment, attendance counseling, classroom interventions, crisis intervention, consultation, individual, family and group counseling to name a few.
  • High school can be a complex place for students to navigate – sometime students are concerned about school performance, friends or family relationships.  Social Workers support students dealing with any of these concerns and together they collaboratively problem solve to make things more manageable.  1 in 4 people deal with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and overwhelming stress.  The School Social Worker will help students manage any mental health issues which may affect their healthy functioning at school.
  • To access School Social Work services, please do not hesitate to contact the school administration or our school social worker
