HEEADSS assessments

Cheryl Morrow —

Adolescence is a time of growth and development and can be challenging for some.

Our School nurse will be conducting health checks on students over the school year, using the Ministry of Health’s “ HEEADSSS” assessment tool.  This includes a range of questions relating to home, school, eating, drug/alcohol, depression, sexuality and safety.  Any health risks identified will have the appropriate support offered to student and family. If you wish to opt out from having the check done please contact the nurse on 07 5490434 Ext 2018.
