Is Your Child Fit for School?

Is Your Child Fit for School?
The Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSW LHD) Health Promotion team has put together a checklist and website packed with information to help parents ensure their children are in good health and ready for Primary School.

Dr Avigdor Zask, Acting Manager of NNSW Health Promotion said research evidence shows children with health problems, which have not yet been detected and addressed, are more likely to have difficulties enjoying school and learning well.

“The website gives contact details for free before school health checks such as vision, hearing and speech, and practical information on subjects like sun safety and healthy lunch box packing.

“This information will help parents and carers to consider a range of health and wellbeing topics and if necessary, get help to address these concerns,” Dr Zask said.

The checklist has been designed so that parents and carers can easily determine whether all relevant aspects of their child’s health have been assessed and address any concerns by contacting local health services.

The website can be accessed at:
or by going to , clicking on the Kids and Families tab and then on the Fit 4 School tab.
