Student Health Care

A reminder to notify the school about your child’s health care needs.

We welcome information from parents about your child’s health, even if you are not requesting specific support from our school. Information about allergies, medical conditions such as asthma and diabetes and other health care related issues should be provided to the school by parents.

It is also important that you let us know if your child’s health care needs change or if a new health condition develops. Please make sure you notify our office staff of any changes to your contact details or the contact details of other people nominated as emergency contacts.

Online Safety

As parents and carers you know your child better than anyone and have the best opportunity to support and guide them to have safer online experiences.

This guide covers some of the key online safety issues for young people and includes a range of practical tips and advice on what to do if things go wrong. You can also find a list of important services that can offer extra support.

Research indicates that:

  • Regular attendance at school is fundamental to student learning. Students who attend school regularly are more likely to achieve educational success and increase their career and life options.
  • Student attendance has been identified as an important aspect of a student’s wellbeing and failure to receive an education has been identified as a risk of harm factor.
  • Poor patterns of attendance place students at risk of not achieving their educational, social and psychological potential and disadvantage them in the quality of choices they are able to make in later life situations.
  • Communities benefit from students who regularly attend school and are achieving. These benefits include greater student safety, community wellbeing, and a sense of connectedness for all.
  • Schools, families, and communities can work together to send a strong collective message about the importance of going to school.
  • Promoting the benefits of regular attendance to students, teachers, early childhood centre staff, parents, and community groups will help create a culture where regular school attendance is the norm.
