Admin staff accept responsibility to give medication to students during school medicationhours, only when it is absolutely necessary. When administering medication strict guidelines set out by The Department of Education are as follows:

  • Medication will only be administered if it is prescribed, in the original container and has a pharmacy label. If the medication is more complex with specific administration requirements then a letter from the medical practitioner is required

             i.  Non-prescribed medications e.g. Analgesics/cough syrups will not be
                 given

             ii. No Panadol/paracetamol etc. are held in admin

  • A medication permission form is available from the office, and medication will NOT be supplied to the student without a signed permission form
  • When medication is no longer required to be administered by the school, parents will be notified, who are then responsible for collecting the medication from admin
  • At NO time will medication that has been prescribed to one student be administered to another student
  • At all times the medication will be stored in a safe and secure place
