There are occasions when students require support services that go beyond the scope of the Advisor program. The Counselling Department meets the needs of these students. Counsellors provide the opportunity for students to access educational, personal, financial and career counselling and also furnish information regarding scholarships and post-secondary programs. Support is available to students, parents, and advisors during the school day.
The school’s counsellors coordinate meetings between students and resource people from a variety of community agencies. These community agencies include but are not limited to Alberta Health Services, Social Services, post-secondary institutions, employers, legal services and police services. Students may schedule appointments by contacting the counsellors.
Learning Commons Services
The Chinook Learning Commons possesses a wide range of books and educational movies, as well as extensive access to online research sites and creative media opportunities. Our Learning Commons endeavors to create a balance between a quiet study area and a classroom research facility. In addition, it provides a public forum for students to display works of art, or enhance their technology skills. Students are also able to complete computer research at one of our 38 computer stations in our library. Jacquie Hill is our head Teenbrarian & Informationist. Hours of operation:

Textbook Centre/Test Writing Centre
Students will be provided with all necessary textbooks for classroom instruction under the rental fee structure. Students will be charged for lost or damaged books. Chinook is NOT responsible for providing textbooks for distance learning or summer courses. Students must return all rental books and materials by the end of each semester. In most cases students may hand in their books just before they arrive to write final exams in each course. For courses without final exams, or when exam exemptions apply, students should return books to the learning centre by the last day of regular classes each semester. Students should make early arrangements with the Office staff to pay for lost textbooks. If a student withdraws from a course during the semester, he/she is responsible for immediately returning all books and materials to the Textbook Centre.
Exams and quizzes may be written in the Textbook Centre by making arrangements with your classroom teacher.
