No class teacher is permitted to administer medication of any description. If your child requires medication while they are at school, please contact the northen office for the forms you will need to complete. The only medication to be kept with a child is asthma medication.

Other medication is not to be kept in your child's bag and no medication will be administered without written direction from either parent or carer. All medications are administered by a trained staff member, delegated by the Principal. This policy reflects Department of Education and Training's Drug Policies.


When your child is sick or has a contagious complaint such as head lice, school sores, chicken pox, etc. please keem them at home, according to the Department of Health. We are only able to treat minor injuries. Parents will be contacted in more serious cases.


Immunisation is a safeguard to positive health care and we suggest that you consult your doctor concerning protection against Diptheria, Whooping Cough, Polio Myelitis and Tetanus. Children entering school are required to have an immunisation certificate. In the event of an outbreak of any of the diseases, children not immunised would have to remain at home.
