Counsellor's Corner


Hello, my name is Sarah Pieterse and I am the school counsellor at Fort Saskatchewan Elementary School. I am passionate about mental health and grateful for the opportunity to support and have a positive impact on those I serve.  

As your school counsellor, my role is to support the emotional, social and intellectual development of all students through counselling, school-based collaborative discussion, coordination of services and communication between the school and family/community, child advocacy, and educational programming. I provide support in the areas of recognition and expression of feelings, communication, social skills, conflict resolution, learning difficulties, study habits, self-confidence, stress and anxiety, as well as the development of program plans to help students achieve their full potential. 

Please feel free to reach out to me any time at 780-998-7771 or through email at
