Dental services are available through the School Dental Services conducted by Queensland Health. Regular, free dental care for all primary school children can be obtained at the Mobile Clinic during a specified time each year.
Prescribed Medication will be administered as directed by the child's doctor or as set out on the original bottle label by the pharmacist. Where children are required to take medication a "Letter of Authorisation" must be completed. Panadol or other non-prescription medicine cannot be administered under any circumstance.
Please Note: We cannot administer the 1st dose of any medication.
Any medication to be administered must be handed into the office by a parent/guardian to be kept in a secure area. Only office staff or leadership team members can administer medication.
As we have students enrolled with severe allergies to nuts, parents are asked not to send along nut products in lunch boxes. This, along with a number of other strategies will be implemented to minimise risks for these students.
Students who are unwell should not attend school. Children with infectious diseases must be excluded for specified times and parents are asked to inform the school immediately.
We believe that all children are unique and are to be valued for their differences.
We believe that the task of caring for children (as parents or teachers) is an important one.
We believe that adult responses to children's behaviour should be in keeping with the Christian values upon which the Mission of the school is based.
We believe that children learn best in a positive, supportive environment.
We believe that the behaviour of children can be affected by many variables.
