It is school policy that teachers do not administer medication, including paracetamol, aspirin, etc. to students. If it is necessary for a child to take medicine on a medical practitioner's advice during school hours, please complete a Student Medication Request Form at the School Office. Parents/caregivers are then requested to send to their child’s teacher a note advising that medication needs to be taken whilst at school. The child must know how to administer the medication – school staff will only supervise this administration. Please refrain from sending medication requirements for more than the required period. Any medication brought to school will be stored in a locked drawer in the first aid area until it is required. Please refer to the Administration of Medication Form.
DisclaimerWhilst all care will be taken and all reasonable assistance given, it should be noted that the responsibility for supply, storage and administering of any and all medication does not rest with St Sebastian’s School or school staff. Accordingly, no liability for supply and/or administering of medicines/medication will be accepted.
