Introducing the School Nurse Ambassador Programme
Moseley School has recently been invited to take part in the NHS’ School Nurse Ambassador Programme. This programme has come about as a result of government research showing that young people have considerable enthusiasm for being more involved with health services that are aimed at them. Cathy Burke, our School Nurse, will operating weekly drop-in sessions on a Wednesday lunchtime and these are open to all students.
Pictured here are Aisha Naz, Shahana Fazal and Valentina Ancuta who have been attending meetings led by the Head Boy, Atif Khan, that are deciding the strategic objectives of the project.
Later this month, they will be attending a conference in the city centre at which they will work alongside students from other schools and health professionals to further develop the programme.
Atif says: “I aim to study Medicine at university. Becoming a health professional is about so much more than the science: we need to be confident networkers, strategic thinkers and great in a team if we are to have the best outcomes for our clients. It’s great that my team of Year 8s and 9s have become so engaged with the programme and we look forward to publicising it to the whole school through assemblies over the next half term.”
