Parents need to inform teachers and front office staff, of the medication students are taking. Medication needs to be clearly labelled (name, dose, times for administering). Written authority is required from parent/guardian for a member of staff to administer prescription medication.
A written statement is also required from the student’s doctor for prescription medications. Medications are stored securely by the front office staff. Responsibility for collecting medication rests with the student. For further information go to the departmental policy on Administering Medication - www.det.act.gov.au.
Messages During the Day
Parents bringing messages, lunches or materials, to school during the day, should leave them at the front office with the school office staff who will ensure that they get to the appropriate class.
All payments for school activities such as excursions, camps, or sports days, need to be brought to school in a sealed envelope with the students name clearly marked.
All monies sent to school should be handed to the classroom teacher in the envelope provided with your child’s name, activity details and amount clearly marked on the outside of the envelope. A receipt is issued for amounts over $10.00. Eftpos facilities are available for amounts over $10.00.
