On Thursday 22nd November from approximately 11am the hearing and vision technician will be visiting our school. She will be carrying out checks for children who were absent at the time of the previous visit, new immigrants and those children who have not completed a vision and hearing check as part of their B4 School Check.
All tests are non-invasive, safe, and should cause no discomfort. The technician will notify parents of all test results and enter results on the Ministry of Eduction database. Parents are not required to be present at the time of testing.
If parents do not want their child to be checked, or their child is currently under specialist care for a vision or hearing defect, they should let the school know.
