Hi, my name’s Lynda and I’m the Health Promoting School Nurse here at Katherine High School.
There are 14 School Nurses scattered across the Territory. Although employed by the NT Health Department, we work with the students, staff and communities of Government Schools to promote healthy lifestyle choices. We offer information, advice and a referral service to the School community in response to the individual, group or community needs. Working with the School’s teachers, our aim is to deliver and support a healthy school environment for all.
