Guidance and Counselling
OLM Drimnagh’s Guidance and Counselling Department is run by Mr. Healy, who offers a complete and confidential service service to our students while adhering to the Department of Education and Skills Child Protection Guidelines 2017 and OLM Child Protection Safeguarding Statement and Procedures.
The Guidance and Counselling Department, while working to our schools motto ‘Shaping a Brighter Future for Our Young People’, has a responsibility to help students make informed personal, educational and career decisions, set realistic personal and career goals and develop the skills required to accomplish these goals. The Guidance Department also provides students support in coping with personal problems and academic concerns.
