Student Medical Information
It is essential for your child’s protection and ours, that we are fully aware of necessary treatment and medication requirements. Please ensure that all medical information is current and up to date on admission cards. Where severe medical conditions or allergic reactions exist, we ask that parents complete Health Care forms available from the school office as soon as possible.
- A student is carrying medication to school, what form the medication takes e.g. Tablet, mixture, inhaler, and for what reason.
- Any condition exists e.g. Asthma, allergic reaction to bee sting, which may require staff to take emergency action.
- Any medication which may require school staff assistance.
- There is a need for safe storage. Is the student carrying medication which may be a danger to other students?
All medication brought to school must be clearly labelled with the student’s name, drug’s name and strength. Where prescribed medication is necessary, instructions from prescribing doctor are required. If the student has medication to be administered at school, parents must contact an administrator accordingly and complete relevant documentation.

We do ask that you please refrain from placing medication in your child’s school bag. All medication brought to school for example Ventolin, Panadol, Nurofen etc must come up to the office where the appropriate paperwork needs to be filled out.
As part of the Department’s Health Care Policy, ou will be asked to complete a student health care summary form which provides an overview of your child’s health care needs and information for use in a medical emergency. This plan will enable the medication to be administered at school and ensure it is in a safe place where we can monitor and review regularly.
Your cooperation with this would be greatly appreciated. Should you have any further queries or questions please phone the school on 9383 9022.
