Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School employs a full-time School Nurse in order to provide exceptional care to our students should they become ill or injured.
Role of the School Nurse
Our School Nurse is responsible for an array of objectives including acute care, health promotion, awareness, prevention of injuries, management of existing injuries, emotional support, and the provision of information and equipment to deal with potential accidents.
During the day our School Nurse is based at the Health Centre attached to the Eric Speed Early Childhood Centre, and each weekday morning the School Nurse visits boarding between 7.30am to 8.30am to touch base with students who have existing medical issues or to check on anyone who may have become ill overnight.
Our School Nurse is a wonderful contributor to the School community, getting to know many families and endeavouring to help students through health issues, minor and severe. Although band aids and ice packs are a highly sought after commodity, sometimes a friendly ear and liaising with parents can be all that is needed for a student to get back on track.
Regular publications and factsheets are also provided for the information of parents and students at the bottom of this page.
