MEDICATION AND FIRST AID
Where possible student medication should be administered by parents, at home, at times other than during school hours. If medication is required to be administered during school hours, the forms below need to be filled in and returned to the front office. Medication must be supplied in the original package with the administration instructions clearly marked. Any medication that is brought into school cannot be administered to a child without completed paperwork.
This includes asthma and anaphylaxis plans, pain relief and prescribed medication/antibiotics from a doctor.
HEALTH CARE PLANS
If a child has a medical condition which requires on-going monitoring at school a health care plan needs to be provided to the school.
Conditions may include:
- Anaphylactic Reactions to nuts or other foods
Wellbeing is everyone’s business and we have a tiered system of support dependant on the needs of the students.
Every class uses our school values to help develop a positive classroom culture where every child feels safe and valued. Teachers work with the Social Emotional Curriculum to help students build resilience and strategies for navigating social amd emotional issues.
We have trained facilitators in the Rock and Water program and this is taught across the school. This program teaches children how to recognise when they should be assertive and when they should let things go.
Small group support - Our school chaplain implements programs to help students work through issues. For example, the Seasons for Growth program is implemented for children who have experienced loss or family breakdown. Other programs used are: Shine and Kid's Club.
The Positive Learning Team run programs in our school to help students develop greater self-awareness and self-management.
Our specialists and Assistant Principals run programs dependant on need to support students. Eg. drumming, anger management, music therapy.
In consultation with parents, students may work with:
- School Chaplain (this is pastrol care not counselling).
- School Counsellor
- Play Therapist (limited to a maximum of 10 sessions)
- School Staff by being placed on an individual support plan.
