Waikanae Primary School The children of today are the leaders of tomorrow. Ngā mokopuna o te ra nei Ngā rangatire o āpōpō.


Health Matters


Please inform the office of any known medical conditions for your child. If medication is to be given at school, please come into the office to fill out the necessary authorisation form.  Pain relief is not given out unless parent permission has been sought.

 

Dental Care

Regular checks are supplied free of charge. The Central Dental Hub (Bee Healthy) can be contacted on 0800 825 583 for an appointment. Dental Clinics are housed at Paraparaumu School and Raumati Beach School. If you are worried about your child’s dental health, don’t wait to be called in, make an appointment yourself. The Mobile Clinic aims to be at Waikanae School for 3-4 weeks per year.


Hearing/Vision

Routine tests are taken with students as New Entrants and again at Y7/8. Any children of concern are tested/monitored throughout their school years as needed. Parents are notified when their children require specialist attention.

Health Nurse

The health nurse regularly provides communication about any major illnesses in the area and the school can access their assistance at any time; referrals are made if it is necessary.
