Health Centre

The role of the Health Centre at Rothwell Campus is to take care of not only first aid following illness or injury at school but to also support the day to day needs of students with ongoing medical conditions. 

We support students with a variety of different medical conditions requiring monitoring and or the administration of medications either short or long term. We work alongside and in collaboration with the teaching and pastoral care team to ensure a holistic approach to the day to day care of our student body. Our Registered Nurse is also involved in health promotion initiatives throughout the year delivering educational presentations to students. Where necessary the Registered Nurse will also attend off campus events and camps to support students with medical needs.

Currently we have two staff members working in the Health Centre at Rothwell Campus. A Registered Nurse works Monday to Friday 8am – 3:30pm and a qualified First Aid Officer works set hours each day to cover the busy time and scheduled sport days.
