School High Health Needs Fund

The School High Health Needs Fund (SHHNF) supports students at school and kura who have significant health conditions. The fund pays for a teacher aide when the student has a high health need and care and support is needed for more than 6 weeks.

About the SHHNF

The fund helps students learn to manage their own care needs to the best of their ability and as quickly as possible. Most students become independent in managing their health care needs. A small number of students may need the fund’s support throughout their schooling.
