NZ Blood Drive at Avcol

New Zealand Blood Service (NZBS) will be holding a mobile blood drive at:

Avondale College


Thursday 29th February, 9am – 2pm

Information for Parents, Guardians and Whānau

It is important that we encourage students into a lifetime habit of donating blood and making a worthwhile contribution to their community.

The Care of Children Act 2004 allows people 16 years and over to make their own decisions about whether or not they wish to give blood. Students may choose to donate blood at this session.

NZBS recommends that students discuss becoming a blood donor with their family. If families have a particular objection to the student choosing to donate blood, please make this known to the student and to the school before the blood drive date stated above. More information about blood donation will be available on the day of the blood drive.

Parents are also welcome to come to the school and donate blood at this blood drive.

NZBS respects the privacy of all donors and recommends conversations around blood donor eligibility is carried out sensitively. If you require any further information please call 0800 GIVE BLOOD (0800 448 325) or visit

Students will be able to sign up in the Avcol Library from next week - they should keep an eye on the daily notices. There are some restrictions - download the Info document below for more info.
