First aid and sick bay

First aid

Two office staff are trained in first aid. Assistance is available at the Administration Office in Block A. All staff are trained in CPR and resuscitation as well as anaphylaxis. There is access to a defibrillator and full medical kits at the front office.


Sick bay

The school ‘Sick Bay’ is staffed by qualified first aid attendants and is provided by the school during school hours, so that immediate attention to illness or injury is available to students at all times.

Sick Bay procedures

It is best to remain at home if students are unwell in the morning.

If a student becomes ill at school, they need to report to the admin office, where appropriate action will be taken.

Students are Not Permitted to leave the school without permission.

A treatment action plan should be supplied for students with asthma or any other illness that may require first aid assistance at school. In particular, medical conditions like epilepsy, haemophilia, diabetes, anaphylaxis or severe allergic reactions.  This plan will be attached to school records.

Each student who is at risk of anaphylaxis is required to have a management plan that has been developed in consultation with the parents or guardians and medical practitioner. 

First aid medical supplies are only issued for injuries/incidents that occur at school. Any student requiring strapping tape etc must also provide their own supplies where possible.
