Meet Emily Stark

Many school families have had the pleasure of working with Youth and Family Counsellor, Emily Stark, to find solutions to family challenges. Some parents may not know about the many services Emily has to offer at our school. Here are some of the helpful ways Emily can make a difference for your family:

Individual counselling

Family counselling/mediation

Group counselling

Resource referral

Crisis management

Work with a team to ensure each child's needs are being met in a hoalistic way

Help with kids needing glasses through the One Sight program or shoes through Shoes for Youth

Outside agency support

Parents wishing to speak with Emily can often find her outside chatting with parents at drop-off and pick-up or in her office which is located near the girl's washroom across the hall from the gymnasium. Emily can also be reached by phone at (250) 382-9131 Ext 233 or by email at

A Vic West Kindergarten student- in the Times Colonist!

One of our Kindergarten Students, Averie C, had her weather drawing profiled in the Times Colonist on Dec 6th 2013.  So fun to see our students in the newspaper!
