Please bring your child's VACCINATION RECORD to complete registration.
It is important that the school be made aware of any special circumstances regarding the health of your child. To this end, please complete the following by selecting "Yes" or "No".
Please read the following carefully before signing the authorisation below:
In an emergency, the school will take whatever action is required to safeguard your child and avoid any delay that would otherwise jeopardize their life or recovery, with the understanding that every effort will be made to contact you immediately.
However, there are numerous "non-emergencies" that occur every week, when students come to the Clinic with minor ailments. These can be treated with generally available medications.
The medications that are held by the school or their equivalent are: Paracetamol sold as Panadol or Fevadol; Ibuprofen sold as Brufen, Advil or Junifen; Strepsils which are throat lozenges; Rennies; Motillium for heartburn and stomach ache; and antihistamines for allergic reactions.
It may be that you would not wish your child to receive these or indeed any medication at all. However if you would like your child to be able to be given any of these mild treatments, the school requires your written authorisation in the form of your signature below.
Please note that the Medical staff will not administer medication to your child without this authorisation.
In the event of an emergency, I have no objection to the Medical staff in the Clinic administering necessary medication to my child, or to my child being taken to a hospital for treatment, if required.
Please note it is your responsibility to inform us if there is any change in your child's medical condition (i.e. newly developed allergies)
