Scoliosis check in the Primary School

Postby janice_0950 » Sun Jun 19, 2011 7:31 am

Hi Parents here,

I would like to check does upper primary have their check up in the school?
such in Scoliosis? Why only school provides such of this check up @ upp primary?
However, my boy in Pri.2 now. And I got to know there are Health Check Up in the school. But only provided Eyes check & Injection.

Well, I think it is the best to have a check up which requires in the school. Not only reach upp primary. :stompfeet:
Singapore kids are so poor. And they have to carry up a heavily bag in daily. (Mon-Fri). :?

you mean whether the health checks in lower pri sch also include checks for scoliosis? i think they only start at upper pri sch.. my cousin's daughter got detected with slight scoliosis at her pri 5 or 6 check up.. heng not very serious, else muz wear braces i think.. agree with you that they should start earlier.. not sure why they dont do it..

Hi iringi,
sorry for the very late reply.

What I knew Pri.1 & 2 only have the health checks on their Eyes Sight.
Regarding upper Primary will be have back spine checks.
But what I think could be possible change on the Primary 1 & 2 instead.
As now a days pupils are carry heavy bags to school.
