Health and Welfare

We have a number of qualified First Aiders, and there is one on duty at all times.  Sick or injured children are sent or taken to the School Office to be dealt with by the First Aider.  Parents and emergency services are called as necessary. We keep a register of emergency contact numbers for all children.

In general, medicines should be administered at home. For example, a three-times-daily dose can be given before and after school and then at bedtime. If more frequent doses are needed, the medicine should be brought to the School Office with clear written instructions and signed in. The recommended practice regarding epipens and inhalers for asthmatic children is that they should be kept in class for immediate use.
