Our doctor and nurses have a multitude of experience in health promotion, including, child protection, health education and screening. They also have a great deal of insight and knowledge into the health needs of children and teenagers.
School Clinic Facilities
The school clinic is equipped to deal with all minor and major injuries. The layout is such that we can accommodate those children who visit for minor ailments and those who may require rest and monitoring. We are also fortunate to have a separate room for examinations to be conducted in and for use when privacy is of the utmost concern.
In the event of any medical emergency, we have protocols in place to ensure that this will be dealt with safely and professionally, to allow the best possible care for each child. Emergency equipment is available in areas throughout the school and if required, external medical emergency support is readily available to the school.
