Kia Ora Koutou Katoa, just a little insight into the School based Health Services and with Kura Kaupapa Maori services.

The Schools are selected by the Ministry of Health then contracted out to the providers to deliver services to improve access to health and social services for Kura Kaupapa Maori students.

Take care of our children,
Take care of what they hear,
Take care of what they see,
Take care of what they feel,
For how the children grow so will the shape of Aotearoa.
- Dame Whina Cooper

The services are free of charge for the schools.
