Where children are receiving special educational treatment in other areas it would
be helpful if school medical officers in those areas seeing the children during their stay
in special schools could send reports to the School Health Department on the medical
progress of the children so that an up to date register can be kept. As is noted this is
done at the Bentry School for all "out of area" children.
