• The City Council will shortly request improper competition to guarantee the best quality of care for students
• Alós Valls: “We want this course to have the maximum sanitary measures”
The City of Moncofa is already working to launch the school nurse service at the municipality’s school starting next year. The consistory has obtained the approval of the management and will shortly request improper jurisdiction from the Generalitat. Moncofa would thus join other municipalities such as Benicàssim or Onda that provide this service in their schools.
The mayor of Moncofa, Wences Alós Valls, has assured that “we want this course to have the maximum health safety measures for both the children of Moncofa and their teachers. We will do everything possible so that the next school year starts with this service that has proven to be completely effective in the pioneering cases where it is being implemented ”.
It must be taken into account that the nursing professional in the Infant and Primary courses would provide the work of medical assistant for those students who need it, in addition to working on prevention and health promotion focused on childhood, and in the Primary Education part They would provide educational programs such as sex education, conciliation about bullying, prevention of addictive behaviors or hygiene and health guidelines.
“It is about studying the most appropriate programs and assistance for the children of Moncofa in the hands of the professionals. We are convinced that this service would be a great added value to the education of our children, and we will do everything possible to be able to activate it as soon as possible ”, assures Councilor for Education Ana Gracia Vilalta.
For the head of the municipal health area, Mari Carmen Ferri “we are sure that in a course like the one that will soon begin this health reinforcement focused on the prevention of Covid and teaching reinforcements related to health will be very good for everyone.”
