Notification of medical conditions
Parents are required to
provide current medical details and emergency contacts on enrolment. This information is circulated to staff responsible for their care whilst at school. Any change in your child's medical condition should be communicated to school as soon as
Emergency contacts are
needed in case of accident or illness. Parents are always contacted first, but if parents are not able to be contacted, emergency contacts will called. It is vital that both parent contact details and emergency contacts phone numbers are up
to date at all times. Parents are asked to notify the school of any changes to
this data as soon as possible. Several emergency
contacts are preferred, just in case you are unavailable when a medical emergency occurs. If it is not possible to provide emergency contacts, the principal will authorise any necessary emergency
Providing medication at school
Any medications required by your child at school, even over-the-counter medications such as Panadol, must have:
- A pharmacy label with the child's name and dose indicated.
- An 'Authority to Administer' form (available from Office/Admin) completed and signed by parents, authorising school staff to administer medication.
- Be presented in original packaging, i.e. tablets must be in original blister packs, not decanted into pill boxes.
School staff are unable to administer medications if these conditions are not met.
