HEALTH CENTRE

 

Our well-equipped Health Centre is staffed with a part-time doctor and one nurse and is located on the ground floor, close to the library, providing quality medical service to our students and staff. It features a spacious waiting area, observation beds and medical equipment of the highest standards including a Nebulizer, Glucometer, ENT Diagnostic Set, Sphygmomanometer and Oxygen Cylinder.

Our nurse is always present at all times during the school day to administer first aid as and when required. If children are unwell while at school, they will be cared for at the clinic until collected by a parent/guardian. We do not allow children to go home via taxi unless they are escorted by a parent/guardian.

Health services that are in line with the KHDA, the Dubai Health Authority School Health Guidelines and AAM’s health services are also offered to students such as Health Tips, healthy Lunch Box and Snack Suggestions, how to prevent and treat injuries, how to boost immunity and how to stay fit.

AAM follows the guidelines set by the Healthy Eating Initiative and thus are asking parents to let their children bring any fizzy/soft drinks, sweets, chocolates or anything in glass containers. DBS is furnished with water dispensers throughout the campus to encourage all our students to drink healthy water during the day.

Additionally, since children are often allergic to nuts, please do not let your child bring any products containing nuts to school. We are also a pork-free school.
