Health Information

MEDICAL INFORMATION: Please inform the College nurse as soon as possible if there are any changes to your child's medical information.

MEDICATION: If a parent requests the nurse administer medication to their child, they must complete a Medication Request Form which 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 with diagnosed type 1 diabetes must carry their 'hypo food' with them at all times.
  • Students who have any 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.
