Illness at school

Students who become ill during school time are cared for in the sick bay which is located beside the school office in our admin block.  Parents or caregivers are advised by phone and may collect their child from the sick bay.

Many of our teachers are First Aid certified and are able to administer First Aid and attend to minor injuries.  Should it be considered that the student requires professional medical assistance a staff member will take the student to the nearest Doctor, if parents or caregivers cannot be located.  Parents or caregivers are encouraged to regularly update their contact details.

Medication such as paracetamol will not be administered to students unless the school has contacted the parent or caregiver for permission or has written permission.  Students with medication at school should hand it to the office.  (This does not include inhalers for asthma).
