Our Public Health Nurse visits the school on request to monitor our students’ health.
When students need to be on medication the class teacher should be informed. Parents whose children are need to take medication during school hours are required to inform the office secretary so that you can sign a consent form. All medical supplies will be kept in a secure place.
Quality food enhances your child’s learning potential. For this reason, we discourage sweets, fizzy drinks and highly coloured and flavoured snack foods at school.
Children must wear a school hat at all times they are outside during terms 1 and 4. This includes coming to and from school. An official school bucket style may be ordered from NZ Uniforms. Children without a hat will be required to stay in the shade areas during breaks and will be unable to participate in outside activities.
Nits are an ongoing problem in all schools. For this reason, we ask that all students (girls and boys) with hair below shoulder length have it tied back. This helps prevent the spread of nits between children.
If there is a concern about nits in a particular room(s) then you will be notified. We ask that you treat your child(ren) as soon as possible and ask that you do not send your child(ren) back to school until this has been done.
