Please feel free to phone with any concerns about your child’s health, or if you need advice or referral to other services, such as Dental, Hearing and Vision Services, Dietician, Public Health Nurses, Community Nursing Services.

We are available for clinical consultations for students by appointment. Appointments can be made at student reception.  All consultations are strictly confidential.

HEEADSS assessments:

Adolescence is a time of growth and development and can be challenging for some.

The Student Health Nurse will be conducting health checks on students using the Ministry of Health’s “HEEADSSS” assessment tool.  This includes a range of questions relating to home, school, eating, drug/oh, depression, sexuality and safety.  Any health risks identified will have the appropriate support offered to student and family. If you wish to discuss this further please contact the nurse.
