Homeschooling in New Zealand

Homeschooling in New Zealand :
anything you may want to know : including personal stories writtenby Anna Kiwis Johnston

Vision and Hearing Tests
In Christchurch and this would be similar elsewhere. There is a public funded service based at Burwood Hospital for testing children’s vision and hearing. Options for accessing these tests are to go to your local school duringterm time when the testers are there, or togo to the clinic at Burwood Hospital out ofterm time. Children are tested at: Ages 3 and 5: vision and hearing test. Age 11: vision test, including the colourblindnesstest for boys. You do not have to wait until these ages. If you haven’t had your child’s vision orhearing checked before and you would liketo, it can be done at any age over 3 years.
Phone Glynnis Whitelaw on 383 6877 at the Burwood Clinic. She will be able to tell you who the tester is and when she will next be visiting your local school. You would then need to phone the clinician at that time to make an appointment. Just phone Glynnis directly if you wish to go to the clinic at Burwood for your test out of term time.

You can take your children to the local school nurse for free
To find the school nurse: look in the white pages under your local school name and there should be a listing for the dental clinic.
For example: Mount Pleasant School Dental Clinic
