Nurse’s Corner

A note from the School Health Nurse 

Welcome to the new school year. My name is Angela Gordon and I am the School Health Nurse based at Woodvale Secondary College.

 

School health services are an easy way for secondary students to access health care and health information for issues including;

  • mental health and wellbeing
  • healthy lifestyle – nutrition and physical activity
  • development and growth
  • relationships and sexual health and
  • alcohol and other drugs.

 

School Health Nurses are skilled in assessing adolescent health needs.  We engage in health counselling with young people to identify issues, risks and protective factors, provide advice and brief intervention, assist with access and referral to other services, and provide follow up care. Young people can drop into the health centre or make appointments to discuss health and wellbeing issues.

 

Young people are always encouraged and supported to talk to their parents or guardians about significant health issues.

 

The services provided are free and confidential.

 

If you have a concern about your child’s health or wellbeing please contact me on 9309 0868.
