Health Space

Our school Health Space is staffed by a Registered Nurse and is provided by the school during school hours. It is available so that immediate attention to illness or injury is available to students at all times.

First aid medical supplies are only issued for injuries/incidents that occur at school or during school business.

The Health Space is for short term assistance only. It is best for your child to remain at home if they are unwell in the morning. However, should they become ill at school they will be attended to by our Registered Nurse. If it is considered necessary for the child to be sent home, parents/caregivers will be contacted. Parents/caregivers are asked to collect their children promptly. If parents/caregivers are not contactable the Emergency contact person will be called. Please make sure that your student contact details are up to date. These can be updated via Compass School Manager. Students are NOT PERMITTED to RING/TEXT their parents/caregivers themselves OR leave the school  without permission. You can find the proper Health Space Procedure on this information sheet.

If your child requires regular medication to be administered during school hours, parents/caregivers need to send the medication to school, clearly labelled, and it must be accompanied by a completed Medication Authority Form 2015. Please be aware the school does not keep a supply of painkillers (Panadol or other medication) for student use. To review the Department policy on Medication please go to this link.    

A treatment action plan must be supplied for students with Asthma or any other illness that may require first aid assistance at school. In particular, medical conditions like Epilepsy, Haemophilia, Diabetes, Anaphylaxis or severe Allergic reactions.

Each student who is at risk of anaphylaxis is required to have a management plan that has been developed in consultation with the parents/caregivers and medical practitioner. The student must also supply their own Epipen/Anapen to be stored in the Health Clinic.

If your child has Asthma, please make sure they carry a puffer on them. You are now able to access Ventolin/Asmol over the counter at any pharmacy.

It is your responsibility to make sure the school is up to date on your child’s medical information.
