Change of Address

The school must be notified immediately if there is a change in address or phone number at home or in the work place of parents. This is to ensure contact in the case of emergency.

Anaphylaxis & Asthma 

We follow the guidelines prepared by the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy Inc. (ascia) & The Children’s Allergy Centre – Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne that provides advice for minimising the risk of food induced anaphylaxis in schools.

Anaphylaxis & Asthma Plans:

If your child has anaphylaxis, asthma or an allergy, the school requires a plan, signed by their Doctor. This plan can stay in place until there is a change in their needs or if the child has an episode. All medication brought to school must be clearly named.



If students have ongoing medical conditions that require additional care, arrangements need to be made for a management plan endorsed by a doctor and built into school procedures. If students require medication for short term illnesses, parents must administer it in person.



Students who are not well enough to play outside during morning or lunch recess should not be sent to school unless there are compelling reasons for acting otherwise.

At times, children showing obvious signs of illness have been sent to school. It would be appreciated if parents would keep at home any child who has a temperature, badly running nose, bad cough or any other worrying symptoms. A sick child is unhappy at school and cannot be expected to learn.

If your child is unwell at school the teacher will send them to the sick bay.

If they are ill, you will be phoned to come & pick them up.

(Please do not send your child to school telling them they can come home if they don’t feel well, as the children will usually say they don’t feel well.)

All children who attend sick bay are provided with a parent information slip. This will include the nature of the illness and the treatment provided.
