MEDICAL INFORMATION: Please inform the College Nurse as soon as possible if there are any changes to your child/rens medical information.

MEDICATION: If a parent requests that the College Nurse administer medication to their child, they must complete a Medication Request Form. This is available from the Nurse. The medication must be in its original container or packaging and clearly labelled with the following:

  • Child's name
  • Name of medication
  • Expiry date
  • Dose and time to be given

If a student is required to carry and self-administer medication while at school, only a single measured dose for one school day can brought onto the College premises. Medication must be carried on the student or locked in that student's locker.

Students with asthma must carry their reliever medication with them at all times.

Students who have diagnosed anaphylaxis are advised to have their Epipen (adrenaline autoinjector) with them at all times if age appropriate.

Students who have other medical conditions requiring medication or treatment and are involved in after school activities, eg, sport, drama etc must ensure they have their medication/treatment with them at all times.

As a preventative measure, could parents please check their child/ren regularly for Head Lice.
