Good health and well-being is vital to student progress. Students health and well-being needs are supported by a team of qualified professionals. This includes:

  • We have a Chaplain on site two days a week for parents and students. Appointments can be made through the Admin office.
  • A school psychologist provides a range of services to students, parents and teachers. Parents should contact the Admin Office to refer their child to the psychologist. A teacher wishing to refer a student will contact parents for approval before doing so.
  • A registered nurse attached to the Department of Health making periodic visits to the school to conduct health checks.

Dental Service

The School Dental Service provides dental treatment, at no cost, for school-aged children up to and including Year 11 students. Specialist treatment is not available, but a referral to a specialist can be arranged if necessary. Over 90% of West Australian school children take advantage of the excellent service and treatment the School Dental Service provides. As a result, there has been a dramatic improvement in the dental health of West Australian children. Our closest unit is based at Craigie Heights Primary School.
