School Nurse

Students in kindergarten and pre-primary will be screened by the School Nurse during the year with the main focus on sight and hearing.  Should the Nurse find any issues you will be contacted.   On occasions during the year, the School Health Nurse may contact you regarding a specific issue relating to your child or a teacher may notice a health issue and will request an interview to discuss concerns.  Your permission is then sought for your child to see the School Health Nurse and additional support as required is provided. The School Health Nurse is also able to provide the necessary contacts for specific needs; e.g. referrals to agencies to help a child with speech and or hearing problems.
