The Vision Hearing Technicians from Population Health team, Southern District Health will be visiting to screen all Year Seven students for distance vision on 4th May 2021.

Distance Vision (Amblyopia & Hyperopia)
This determines how well your child can see at a distance. It involves reading an eye chart.

(This free vision check is not required if student wears glasses and/or is currently under care of an optometrist or eye specialist).

The test will also be carried out on Year 8 students who missed the vision check last year (due to being absent).

If you do not wish your child to be screened please fill out an opt-out slip, which are available at the school office before our visit.
