Health and welfare

Allergies

If your child has been diagnosed with an allergy or allergies, it is important that you tell the school as soon as you become aware of it, or if your child's allergy changes. If your child is diagnosed at risk of an anaphylactic reaction an individual health care plan is developed that includes strategies to minimise the risk of a severe allergic reaction.


Managing complex health needs

An individual health care plan is developed for each student with complex health needs. The plan supports students with severe asthma, type 1 diabetes, epilepsy, anaphylaxis and those at risk of an emergency or requiring the administration of specific health care procedures. Please provide the school with the relevent documentation to help complete a health care plan if your child requires one. 


Infectious diseases

There are many infectious diseases that affect children and young people. Please contact the school immediately if you believe your child has contracted an infectious illness. Schools and parents should contact their local health network for advice regarding infectious diseases.


Vaccinations

NSW Health works in partnership with Wyndham College to offer the vaccines recommended for adolescents by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) in a school-based vaccination program.

Parent information kits are sent home to parents early in the school year. To consent to vaccination, parents are advised to read all the information provided, complete and sign the consent form and return it to school.


Smoking

Smoking is not permitted on Precinct grounds. There is a no smoking policy applying on all excursions or any occasion where students are representing the college off campus.


Security

The Precinct employs a private security firm to guard the grounds. Security of classrooms, storerooms and buildings is the responsibility of individual teachers. Classrooms are locked at the conclusion of each lesson. Executive staff have been trained in the use of the alarm system.
