Visiting medical services
On Wednesdays, Doctor Charu Banjeri and Mental Health Nurse Cindy McKenzie are available on site at BSSC. Mental Health Nurse Lee Kennedy is also available to students every second Friday. This free service, provided by Tristar Medical Group, is located in the Wellbeing Centre. Parent permission is needed for students to see the doctor and mental health nurses.
Back to school
As the year begins – starting a new school, moving schools, finding classes, making new friends and meeting new teachers – will make it a time of great change for most students. It’s normal to feel nervous when beginning a new school and there are many things that you can do to make the transition easier.
We recommend ReachOut.com as a fantastic website for students. The site provides fact sheets, stories and forums to help make it easier for young people to adjust to new places, new people and new friends.
