Hillcrest High School Counselling Department will participate in a study being conducted in a sample of twenty NZ urban schools, which will evaluate the outcomes of secondary school-based counselling. The project is sponsored by NZ Association of Counsellors and co-funded by the Ministry of Education and NZAC.                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Any student seeking counselling from any of the school's counsellors can choose to participate or not, in the survey. The data collection will take place over a time period of two terms. If you have any questions about the study or the data collection please contact Mary-Ellen McGarry, Head of Counselling Department -
