Childhood immunisations

Children should be fully immunised before starting school. On enrolling your child, you must present your child’s immunisation records. If your child is not immunised they will be asked to stay home if another child has contracted a disease. Length will vary on the infectious disease.

No hat, no play policy

In the interests of your child’s health and well-being, our school has a “no hat, no play in the sun” policy which operates for the entire school year.

Health and guidance services

A community nurse and a school psychologist make regular visits to the school.

Under normal circumstances your child will receive three health checks during primary schooling unless some specific complaint is detected which requires continual follow-up. In all cases, parents are advised of any problems.

You are welcome to make appointments with either the community nurse or school psychologist to discuss any concerns.

Dental Therapy Centre

A free dental service operates at the school to provide continuous dental care for your child and to teach proper care of teeth and gums. The centre is supervised by the Health Department’s dental health service and is staffed by qualified dental therapists. Any treatment required (fillings or extractions) is carried out at the centre, and you will be notified when appointments for your child are made. Hours are 8.30 am to 4.00 pm.

Behaviour management

Our school community wants everyone to feel they are valued and respected and feel safe to teach and learn in a happy place. To encourage this, we support a behaviour management policy that rewards good, responsible behaviour. There are consequences for behaviour that affects another student or teacher’s rights to enjoy our school. This policy applies all the time your child is in school, whether in or out of the classroom.

A copy of the behaviour management policy is available from the office.
