Agencies will be at the school from 1.30pm to 5pm to offer advice to parents, staff and students.
The Department of Health will have a number of staff at the event.
The child health team will speak to issues such as immunisation and sexually transmitted infections.

Blood pressure checks, blood sugar checks, weights and body fat will be checked.
Ms Williams-Hart said: “We all need to eat better, exercise more and we need to focus on assisting students with grief counselling, peer pressure and the impact it has on the young.”
