Dear Parents/Carers & Students,
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Secondary School Nurse at Colac Secondary College. I have a background in Adolescent Mental Health Nursing and have worked as a Secondary School Nurse since 2014.
The Secondary School Nursing role aims to improve the health and wellbeing of the school community through implementing health promotion and prevention strategies including embedding whole school approaches, supporting curriculum development in Health, complimenting curriculum through group education sessions and providing individual student support related to a range of Adolescent health concerns.
Although I am a Registered Nurse, my role does not include first aid within the school so continue to see Tara Quarrell for any first aid concerns.
I am located in the Student Services Area every Monday and Wednesday. I look forward to working with the school community at Colac Secondary College.
