The Massey High School Health Centre is open from 8.30am - 3.30pm Monday to Friday. To reduce waiting times and avoid students missing valuable class time, we have allocated the following timing system:
Health Centre Hours
Period 1 and 2 8.30 to 11.10 HEEADSS assessments and emergencies only.
Period 3,4 and 5 11.10 to 3.30 Drop in clinic
Please come at breaks and lunch time to avoid missing valuable learning time. If this is absolutely unavoidable please ensure you have a red pass to get out of class.
Three qualified, experienced registered nurses, Ruth, Jeanette and Rachel provide a drop-in service for a wide variety of student health needs.
A Doctor is available two mornings per week for students who cannot attend their own Doctor. Appointments for students to see our Doctor can be made by the nurse on a priority basis.
We have two nurses in the health centre at any one time who deliver a professional, high quality health care service. We are mindful of student safety and confidentiality and we deliver care in a respectful and dignified manner.
The nurses aim to perform a comprehensive health assessment on every Year 9 student who start at Massey High School. We are able to refer students onto appropriate agencies and support services if required.
We work closely with other departments within the school such as councillors, behavioural support and special education needs to support students.
