Student Health


The school is a smoke free zone to all students, staff and community members.


When a student is caught smoking at school they are referred to the Deputy Principal and a letter sent home. Students caught smoking a second time may be suspended for failure to follow school policy.


Alcohol must not be consumed on school premises. Parents will be informed if a student is in the possession of or under the influence of alcohol. Disciplinary action will result.

Illegal Drugs

 When the use or possession of illegal substances by students is suspected, the incident will be reported to the police. The focus of any subsequent action by the school should be based on concern for the wellbeing of students, emphasising prevention and remediation rather than punitive action. Students, however, may be suspended as per the Department of Education policy.


The Year Adviser must be informed in writing where prescribed or over-the-counter medicines are required at school.

Prescribed Medication Policy

At enrolment, students are encouraged to fill out a health information form. This is especially relevant to students with anaphylaxis, asthma, epilepsy, diabetes whose health needs may need to be managed at school.

Students are not permitted to bring over-the-counter medicines (eg Panadol, Aspirin) and prescribed medication to school without notifying the school.

The administration of all medications is supervised by designated staff. To enable this to occur, medication is sent to the school clearly labelled with dosage instructions and handed to the front office before school.

Students on continual medication who take doses at school supply the following to a Deputy Principal:

- a letter from a Medical Practitioner (see Appendix "Medical Advice to School") 

- updated information when the condition changes.

Students with asthma carry their own medication. A peak flow meter and a bronchodilator or puffer is located in the school's First Aid Kit.

If a student suffers from asthma, bee sting allergies, epilepsy, anaphylaxis or any other medical condition, the school must be notified and a management plan must be developed with parent assistance. 

The school must be informed if a student comes with an epi-pen.

The school has an emergency epi-pen. Medical Plans must be updated annually.

Students who need to leave class on a regular basis for specific medical reasons will be issued with red health card signed by a Deputy Principal or Student Adviser Girls or Student Adviser Boys.
