SEK – Costa Rica
One of our greatest concerns is that our students, your children, enjoy perfect health.
For this, the SEK-CR International College gives special importance to aspects related to Health Prevention.
The School has a Nursing Department that is at the service of students throughout the school day, for any illness, injury or emergency that may occur. The nursing department is conceived as a primary care and first aid service, and at no time does it intend to function as a pediatric consultation.
At different times during the student’s school stage, the Center will make available to parents a medical file that they must complete or update appropriately and that contains relevant information for the individual care of each of the students.
In the event that there is a need to supply any type of medication to a student during school hours, a written request signed by the student’s parent must be sent to the Nursing Office. Also, due to the danger that this entails, students are not allowed to keep medication in their possession, either in their lockers or on their desks.
The Nursing Department guides students, parents and teachers, through talks, colloquia and presentations, in matters related to school preventive medicine and the health of students.
