Many students wonder what areas of study they will pursue after they graduate from high school and what they will be "when they grow up." Questions and uncertainties about the future can cause a great deal stress--but, we can help! The counsellors at PSO recognize this stress and try to help students make a bit of sense of the uncertainty that is out there. Have your son or daughter make an appointment to see a counsellor so we can explore career possibilities and take a look at some of the sites available which can assist him or her. If you or your son or daughter wish to look at something at home, here are a few places which might be very helpful:
