The School Nurse at Bunbury Senior High School is available 4 days a week.
Monday - Tuesday - Thursday & Friday.
School Health Services are an easy access point to health care for students. The Nurse may carry out health assessments and provide information, advice, referrals and support for students.
The support encourages development of knowledge, skills and behaviour, and encourages the young person to deal with their health issues and make healthy lifestyle choices.
Individual students can seek information guidance and support about a range of issues that may include: coping with illness, culture or racism issues, feeling anxious,
stressed or unhappy, healthy eating and nutrition, healthy weight and body image, mental health and wellbeing, loss and grief, problems at homes, relationships, sexual health,
smoking, alcohol and drug use together with other adolescent health concerns.
The Nurse facilitates the first aid process within the school, carries out psycho-social assessments on students as required, runs various groups,
provides open clinics at recess and lunchtime, supports parents and families through various medical issues to enable students to be safe at school and at
home, assists in emergencies and provides short term interventions, referrals as identified and counselling around sexual health, drugs and alcohol,
mental health and other identified health issues. Our Nurse also conducts education sessions in the classroom around health issues and runs various groups.
