- Ext 248 Nurse
The Health Centre is available to all students at interval and lunchtimes. It is run by a registered Nurse between the hours of 8.30am – 3.30pm. Students may visit the Health Centre at other times with a permission slip from their teacher if urgent attention is needed. The school Nurse is here to help. We are able to provide ongoing care at school e.g. wound dressings. If you have seen your GP and require ongoing care please bring your ACC number from your clinic. If your child is recovering from surgery or has on-going health problems which may affect their performance at school please keep us informed. We are happy to assist.
Unwell at School
Please go to the Health Centre and the Nurse will help you, they will arrange for you to go home if needed.
Please do not text parents directly as this often causes confusion when it comes to signing out or accounting for absences.
Please inform the Student Centre of changes to your home, work or mobile telephone numbers. If your child is injured or unwell at school, we can only send them home with people who are named on the database so it is important that you have an emergency contact.
School Doctor Service
A doctor is available for appointments at school. This service is provided by Pinnacle GP network and funded by the Waikato District Health Board. This is a confidential service that students can access free of charge by making an appointment with the school nurse. Students are encouraged to inform their parents if they are seeing the school Doctor, on occasions they may be referred back to their own GP if there is a chronic or on-going problem.
This is free to all students until the age of 18. Further information is available at the Health Centre or at the town dentists. Annual check-ups are strongly recommended.
