Health & Safety


Accidents and First Aid:

From time to time children, unfortunately, sustain injuries in the course of their play. Minor injuries are treated in the sick bay and the child usually returns to class when it is certain there are no ill effects. When it is felt advisable, parents are contacted and requested to collect the child. This would be in the case of more serious injuries when perhaps a visit to a medical centre may be advised or when the child is obviously unwell through sickness and should be at home. The school's policy is to contact parents and advise them of any injuries sustained unless they are of a minor nature.

Medication is not given unless requested in writing by the parents. (Parents must supply any medication given.) Panadol is available at school, but parent approval must be gained before this is dispensed.

Please advise the school if your child has any serious allergic reactions.

Dental Clinic:

The School Dental Therapist can be contacted at (218-7744).

School Traffic Patrols:

The Herbert Street crossing is controlled by a road patrol before and after school. This patrol is supervised before school by a staff member.

Children using the Herbert Street crossing are asked to cross between 8.35am and 8.50am. This practice is helpful for the supervision of the crossing.

Leaving School Grounds:

Children are NOT permitted to leave the school grounds during school hours.
