Please don't send sick children to school - they only spread their illness and risk their own recovery.
Please let us know if your child suffers from a serious illness or disability. This is especially important in the case of asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, allergies, brain / skull injuries etc. Let your child's teacher know about any diagnosed problems as they arise.
Illness or Injury
If your child is sick, your child needs YOU. It is essential that you keep the school up-dated regarding the contact details for you and your emergency contact person. In the event of accident or illness, one of the following will apply:
- Minor first aid will be administered at the Sick Bay
- If an illness or injury is more serious or needing medical attention the parent or carer will be telephoned immediately
- In the event of serious accident, injury or illness an ambulance will be called and parents or carers notified immediately.
Please ensure your contact details with the school are up to date.
Administration of Prescribed Medicines at School
Parents or carers of students requiring the administration of prescribed medicines at school must first provide written documentation from their doctor. The medication should be supplied in person by the parent or carer and given to the School Office. A daily dispenser may also be needed. All medication must be stored at the Office. Students are not permitted to carry medication at school, with the exception of asthma puffers and epi pens. The safest and most preferred option is for medications to be administered at home.
