Q: Hi Nurse Carina, welcome to Dover Court! Can you please tell us a bit about your background.
A: I have worked as a nurse for 8 years. Before working in Dover Court International School, I worked as a home nurse and cared for my patients in the comfort of their homes.
Q: What’s your favourite thing with being a school nurse?
A: I do love to talk to the younger children, they have so many fun stories to tell me. There is a lot of energy around a school and there is always something going on.
Q: How do you find our school so far?
A: It is a very extraordinary environment to work in. The students have been very welcoming and sweet. I am learning so much in this school, that most nurses will not be able to, it being such a diverse place.
Q: What are your top three health tips to our students?
A: As we are facing so many outbreaks all over the world, please do 1) Wash your hands frequently, 2) Drink plenty of water, 3) Eat your fruits and vegetables!
Q: What do you enjoy doing when you are not busy helping our students?
A: I enjoy exploring the different neighbourhoods, Singapore has so much to offer. I also like keeping healthy and looking after myself.
Q: What can the nurses at Dover Court help with?
