Our fully equipped First aid post, is staffed by an experienced occupational first aid officer. Students who are unwell or injured receive prompt attention and, where necessary, parents are contacted.
Students with diabetes, asthma, anaphylaxis or other medical conditions are fully catered for with individual action plans and assistance to take their required medications, etc.
At Nazareth College we place an emphasis on whole person development and individual excellence. Nurturing the emotional wellbeing of our students remains a key focus of Nazareth College. In order to address this, Nazareth provides a counselling service for students. This complements the College’s commitment to the pastoral and welfare needs of our school community. By providing such a resource we acknowledge the importance of developing the whole person and the unique demands faced by each student.
