The Dental Therapist is based in a mobile unit that visits the school annually. Dental forms are sent home with the children and these are required to be completed by caregivers and returned as soon as possible to enable dental treatment to proceed. Newly enrolled children will be followed up and suitable arrangements made. If you feel your child may need dental care and the mobile unit is not at Paparore School, please contact (0800) MY TEETH
/(0800698334) for an updated list of Dental Clinics open.
Our Public Health Nurse is Toni-Melanie Wi who visits the school periodically. Please let the teacher know if you have any queries or seek advice from the nurse.
Moko Health Checks
A team of health professionals, along with our public health nurse, visit the school Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to check for sore throats, skin infections, and other health issues. Your child will only be checked if you have agreed to it and have signed and returned the consent form.
