OPEN:   09h00 – 10h00 and 16h00 – 17h00


Pupils admitted to the Sanatorium are not allowed visitors (this includes chatting to friends at the windows). When pupils are in the Sanatorium for a long time, visiting is at the sister’s discretion and is limited to non-infectious patients only.

Personal Medication

When visiting the Sanatorium, the nurses must be notified of ALL medication the pupil is using, as some drugs interact negatively with each other. All medicines are to be kept by the Sanatorium, or with the House Parent if the Sanatorium staff approve.

Electronic Policy

Pupils admitted to the SAN may not have any access to mobile phones/ computers/ ipods etc. from 08h00 – 16h00.
