Dear Parents/Caregivers and Students
Student Support Services-on line support
The students will be able to contact the Nurse between 9am and 3pm from Monday to Friday (except on statutory holidays). Here are the contact details:
MAGGIE LETHWAITE/School nurse
027 618 9225 email@example.com
The doctor will also be available via on line face to face clinics during term time, starting Monday April 20th. We can organise appointments on the Monday mornings. If a student requests a doctor’s appointment via a text or email to the nurse, they will be emailed a link for an on line consultation. The nurse and the school psychologist can also do on line face to face clinics.
The students will be able to contact the school counsellor from Monday to Thursday, except between the 30th March and the 15th April 2020.
If you contact the Counsellor, they will send a link that enables you to join them in a session, whether it is audio/video/message.
Now that we are about to move on to Level 4, we feel it is imperative to provide on line support for our students. It is anticipated that we are going to see a rise in mental health issues over the next few months or so.
The numbers/websites in the information below are available if you need extra support over the next 4 weeks
