Health

Infectious illnesses

If your child contracts an infectious illness, they must be excluded from school.

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 assessments on all Kindergarten/Pre-Primary students and any Year 1 student not assessed in Pre-Primary.
