Hello, my name is Bernadette Dowle and I am the school counsellor at Cove Cliff Elementary School. In my position as a school counsellor, I aim to create a supportive, safe space for students. I am passionate about working with students to develop their ability to express themselves, face challenges, and develop coping strategies. I enjoy teaching programs rooted in social-emotional learning (SEL) in classrooms and collaborating with families, teachers, administrators, and community supports. Outside of my role as a counsellor, I love spending time in nature with my family, playing volleyball, painting, and travelling.   ​

I am looking forward to the upcoming year and building connections with the wonderful staff and community at Cove Cliff. Please feel free to contact me via phone at Cove Cliff at (604) 903-3420 or email at
