Our Team strives to provide a safe, caring and non-judgmental environment that enables students to work through challenges and develop coping strategies and life skills. Through an open-door, collaborative approach we develop the overall well-being of our students. As student advocates, we work closely with administrators, teachers and parents to address issues that arise. We respect confidentiality, and when needed we refer students and families to external professionals and resources. As educators and counsellors, we make every effort to stay up-to-date with current trends and philosophies as they relate to our students.
In regards to Student Life, our Team will work to develop leadership opportunities amongst students in the House. The student House Captains will also play a big role in mentoring others and fostering a sense of community and spirit within their Houses.

The House System at the Morven Campus is comprised of six houses that compete in inter-house competitions across each of the Four Strands (Academics, Athletics, Arts and Service). Each house is co-ed and comprised of students and faculty, led by a Head of House (faculty) and three elected Grade 12 House Captains.
The competitions foster school spirit, solidify a sense of belonging and create meaningful relationships to enrich a student’s experience at Collingwood. The house with the most aggregate points at the end of the school year is awarded the prestigious Wright Cup.
