We have a range of services available to support the health and wellbeing of our student body. These services are facilitated by the school and in partnership with a range of community organisations.
These are available to students through the Whangamata community services trust and the Whangamata Youth Trust. The Youth Trust also provides services through a local youth mentor, Greg Laing. Students can self-refer or make an appointment through Mrs Whatley, for Secondary Students, or Mrs Brookes, for Primary aged students.
The Public Health Nurse runs a self-referring clinic each Monday between 9am-2pm onsite at Whangamata Area School.
A weekly GP Clinic runs at the school between 10:30-12:30pm each Friday. Students can book appointments through Mrs Whatley. Please note due to funding, this service is available only to secondary aged students.
Specialist drug and alcohol counsellors are available onsite from 9am-12pm each Wednesday. Referrals and appointments can be made through Mrs Whatley.
Whangamata Area School uses local businesses to look after the lunch orders. Currently SUBWAY and JUNKO'S SUSHI.
Order forms are available at the office and lunch orders are placed at the office. The order forms can also be printed straight from Newsletter Issue 1 4 February 2016 (they are located at the end of the newsletter).
SUBWAY lunch orders are available Tuesday - Friday.
Junko's Sushi lunch orders are available on Thursday only.
No lunch orders on Mondays. As the year progresses, fundraising groups use Mondays for sausage sizzles / bake sales etc. to raise money for trips, camps, and other things needed.
