Health Centre

Fraser High School has its own purpose built Health Centre which is a ‘one-stop shop’ to meet the physical and psychological health needs of Fraser students. Very few schools in New Zealand are equipped with such a comprehensive adolescent health centre.

The Health Centre is run effectively and efficiently by qualified, experienced and professional staff.
