Behaviour

The school ethos emphasises a safe, caring and friendly environment in which children can learn to the best of their ability.

Dental Clinic

This service is provided free to children. Enrolment in the scheme is voluntary and children will only be treated with parental consent.

Parents are advised that children should complete any current course of treatment at a private dentist before enrolling in the scheme. A Dental Officer is in charge of the centre and she controls, directs and supervises all activities of the dental therapist. A basic role of the dental therapist is to provide both dental care and treatment as well as instruction in personal dental health care.

The Public Health Department sees the Dental Therapy Centre providing a service of regular inspection and repair of decayed teeth as well as preventative measures such as application of fluoride solutions, fissure sealants and checking of dietary habits and tooth brushing efficiency. Any treatment not provided in or through the Centre is the financial responsibility of the parent.

Telephone 9279 5869 to speak with dental staff.
