School Health Nurse
School Health Services promote improved health outcomes for school aged children and young people and are delivered using a population-based approach to universal and targeted prevention, health promotion and early identification and intervention, for children and adolescents in schools.
The Department of Education is a joint funder of the school health program. Services include:
- Vision and hearing screening and surveillance
- Access to parenting programs
- Early detection and referral of children exhibiting mental health risk factors
- Developmental assessments and referral to other specialist services such as Community Health’s Child Development Service (CDS) as required.
Our school health nurse visits the school regularly. If you wish to discuss your child’s health with the school nurse please contact the Mandurah Community Health Department on 9586 4401.
Story Time is presented by Mrs Tracey Hall. Tracey is one of our Early Childhood Specialists from the Early Childhood Learning Area whose motivation is to introduce a love of literature and books for her young audience. She does this with song and movement and the children (aged between 0-4) are encouraged to participate.
Commencing 5th May 2021, Story Time is held in the Library every Wednesday from 9.00am to 9.30am. All children are welcome to borrow books to foster an early love of reading. It is also a wonderful opportunity for parents and community members to meet others with very young children. After Story Time the school café is open for those who would like to enjoy a cuppa!
Mini Minors is a community based program for children from 0-4 years of age. Parents and Carer’s are encouraged to come along for their little ones to enjoy playing and meet other families. Mini Minors is held in the Early Childhood Learning Play Area every Thursdays from 8.45am to 9.30am.
