Student Safety

Promoting health, supporting student health care needs and reducing health risks are important to everyone at our school.

Prescribed Medication

If your child is being prescribed medication that needs to be taken during the day, please inform us so that arrangements can be made for the medication to be administered. Please read the important information about prescribed medications at school.

Managing complex health needs

An individual health care plan is developed for each student with complex health needs. The plan supports students with severe asthma, type 1 diabetes, epilepsy, anaphylaxis and those at risk of an emergency or requiring the administration of specific health care procedures.

Infectious diseases

There are many infectious diseases that affect children and young people. Schools and parents
should contact their local health network for advice regarding infectious diseases.

Immunisation

Our school's immunisation program works in cooperation with our local health network of the NSW Department of Health who deliver the NSW adolescent school-based vaccination program to high school students.

Allergies

If your child has been diagnosed with an allergy or allergies, it is important that you tell the principal as soon as you become aware of it, or if your child's allergy changes. If your child is diagnosed at risk of an anaphylactic reaction an individual health care plan is developed that includes strategies to minimise the risk of a severe allergic reaction.

Road safety

Road safety education is taught to all students from Kindergarten to Year 12 as part of personalĀ development, health and physical education (PDHPE).
