Should a student be injured at school the First Aid staff will provide initial care and if required, access medical treatment, informing Parents / Carers of their actions.
If your son / daughter is unwell, please do not send them to school in the hope that they will feel better. Anyone suffering from vomiting should remain at home, returning to school when they have not vomited for 48 hours and have eaten.
If your child needs to attend a medical or similar appointment during school he /she must obtain and carry an absence permit. This permit can be obtained from the Attendance Office by means of a note from parents.
If medicines, prescribed by a doctor, need to be administered during school hours, please contact the First Aider and fill out a ‘Parental Consent Form’. Any prescribed medicine should be lodged and kept securely with the First Aider. We encourage all students who use inhalers to control their asthma to lodge a spare with our First Aider, in case of emergencies.
