Back in Motion support a Physiotherapist on school site for our injured athletes
We are lucky to have a Physiotherapist from Back in Motion return to site in Term 4. This opportunity is for any athlete who has had an injury while playing sport. Only students with an injury who can complete an ACC claim can be treated. There will be no ACC surcharge when treated during the clinic times at school. It is available to all students at the school. Any student in Year 7 – 11 must complete the claim form and get a parent /caregiver to sign this form. This covers the legal requirement that any student under 16 must have consent from a parent/caregiver. All students in Year 12 and 13 are able to sign this form themselves.
Jake Brennan is available on a Wednesday morning from 9.00-12.00pm. To make an appointment you need to go to the Main Office and book an appointment on the official sheet, take an ACC Claim and Permission form (one form) and collect a pass to allow you out of class at the appointed time. The first time you go to the Physiotherapist you will need to book a 30 minute appointment. Any following appointment the following week would be a 20 minute appointment. You will not be able to attend the appointment without a signed consent form. Appointments will be made by Tuesday 3.00pm, the day prior to the clinic. No appointments can be made on Wednesday morning. Please see Ms James if you feel uncertain or would like someone with you for the first appointment.
