Health and Wellness

a. First-Aid and Medical Services

In the even In the event of a medical exigency, first-aid as well as immediate medical services are available at school itself with first-aid boxes on each floor.

The sick bay is furnished with two beds, a wheelchair and a stretcher. The nurse, who has an ANM (Assistant Nursing Management) degree and 22 years of experience, is present from 0800hrs to 1600hrs to attend to any situation.

In case of severe cases, where professional/ hospital care is needed, the school has a tie-up with Ojas Multispeciality Hospital, Ravet, Pune, and students will be rushed there.

Further, the school organises annual comprehensive medical check-ups for all its students, irrespective of age, as well as its staff. Health records of both are maintained, while student records are shared and available online for parents to access.

Thanking you, and hoping these changes will be made at the earliest.


b. Counsellor

Laden with strenuous course work, exhaustive efforts and taxing expectations, be it in academics, art or sport, students, parents as well as teachers are under tremendous strain.

While peers may provide a lending ear, and parents may be a pillar of comfort, they are not always approachable in certain situations, trained to resolve conflict, or have the apt solution.

The S.B. Patil Public School has hence appointed a professional and proficient counsellor, Ms. Reema Ambre, to listen to, advice and guide students, parents and teachers during times of need.

Ms. Ambre has to her credit a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology, and has attended trainings and workshops on basic skills in counselling using Play Therapy. Her aim as a counsellor is to assist students in overcoming barriers that may prevent them from a holistic development, something that is always aimed for at S.B. Patil Public School.

Academic progress/ difficulties faced, social issues and peer pressure, conflict resolution, career and parental counselling are her areas of expertise and focus while interacting with students and their families.
