We are fortunate to have an on-site Public Health Nurse who work with our tamariki, providing daily health services to meet their medical needs.
Their services include:
• Clinical assistance with health issues

• Referrals to specialist services
Some of the issues they help treat are:
• Rheumatic fever
• Skin Infections
• Wetting, soiling
• Vision and hearing problems
They also provide support in terms of administering medication and monitoring student progress. Further, they visit family and whānau in their homes for follow up, as well as ensuring they can access the support they need.
