School Health Services

THIS has a comprehensive school health team from Trondheim Municipality associated with the school. The team includes a public health nurse, a doctor, an occupational therapist, a physiotherapist, and a psychologist who can provide advice and support to the school. The public health nurse is the most visible team member, as we have a 60% resource. The public health nurse collaborates closely with the school on matters that promote students’ health and well-being, both at the individual and systemic levels. The public health nurse has a cozy base near the reception. Students can contact them directly by appointment or drop-in, and parents/teachers can do so as needed.

Throughout the school years, students receive various offerings, including health examinations, education, and vaccinations.
