facilities to address the health needs of learners while in school. An on-site
trained and qualified nurse is available to manage and assess any health issues
that may arise during school hours.

Watching Out for Your
The school nurse is constantly in
contact with parents concerning certain aspects of the child’s health, for
example ensuring that the child takes medication at a scheduled hour or
observing the child following convalescence.
In addition to looking after
students who are sent to the school infirmary, the school nurse encourages
participation in various health programs set up by the local government, such
as vaccinations and dental health programs. We also take a proactive approach
in dealing with cyclical or specific health concerns that occur in some age
groups and design campaigns for protection and prevention.
The school medical service is
provided by a first-rate medical unit that monitors our pupils on the school’s
premises. Each year, this unit also imparts training in health matters through
first-aid courses to our teaching and non-teaching staff. Our school believes
in giving comprehensive care to the learners. A trained nurse is on duty in the
infirmary throughout the school hours.
For any emergency, the school has
arrangements with the local hospital which is located near the school. We also
have a tie-up with the same hospital, which conducts a health check once a
year. The children go through a dental, eye and ENT check-up. Our learners are
also examined by the pediatrician on a regular basis. Computerized records of
the medical history of each pupil are maintained by the school.
