­Year 7 Vision Screening Information Sheet

Vision Hearing Technicians from Community and Southern Rural Health will be visiting our school.  The objective of the vision check is to identify previously undetected vision defects.

The check that is carried out is long distance vision tests on all Year 7 students.

If any parents/caregivers do not want their child to be checked, or their child is currently under specialist care for a vision defect, they should let the school know.

This will not be a complete vision examination, but a simple screening test.  When an unsatisfactory result is obtained, it will be necessary for the Technician to obtain personal details ie; home address and date of birth, and parents/caregivers will be asked to seek further advice.

Our Service may share health information gathered in this way with other Health Professionals involved in the student’s care.

This is the inaugural art extravaganza, organised by the St John's College Foundation and showcasing works from emerging and established artists from across the North Island. 
This is a fundraiser for St John's College, Hamilton in support of the long-term plan for the College to have its own chapel once more. All art is for sale and has been carefully curated, with well over 50 artists showcasing a range of ceramics, painting, photography and sculpture.
We do hope to attract a good crowd so that this becomes a valuable platform for artists and a regular community event in the region's calendar. And, of course, we hope visitors may find a piece of art they'll fall in love with.
