Kia ora everybody and welcome to 2022! I hope that everybody had a great break, and is adjusting back into being at school. A big change to the service this year – we have renamed ourselves. We are now ‘Te Wahi Hauora’ which means the ‘Place of Health’.  You might have noticed the new sign above the fishbowl (visible from the carpark). Sue Kersten has joined our team for two half days a week, and Ben Pointer is our 2022 NMIT student counsellor, he works on Mondays. We also welcome back Julia Grigg for two days a week, and I am working 4 days a week this year. Jay Blazek is available on Mondays from 1.30-2.30pm, and our nurses are available on request (this may be limited to more urgent circumstances with the current Covid situation).

If you would like some support please just email myself, or fill out the online referral form.

We look forward to reconnecting with everybody as the term goes on, and remember, it’s okay, to not be okay.

Ngā mihi, Kate the Counsellor.
