Media Publicity and Photographs
Each year schools are involved in events which are covered by the media when photographs/videos may be taken which include students. We also take photographs ourselves to publish in our newsletter, display around school and to place on our website.Permission for student involvement in media events is part of the enrolment process.
Students requiring medication during the day need to have their medicines labelled (name, dose, and times for administering). Receipt of written authority is required from the parent/guardian for a first aid trained member of staff to administer prescribed medication. The school is under no obligation to administer medication but endeavours to assist parents/guardians in the treatment of their children. A written statement is also required from the student’s doctor. Parents need to inform teachers and front office staff of the medication students are taking. No medication can be left in a child’s bag. A record book is located at the Front Office and medications are stored there in a locked location. In the event of asthma or allergies, a written and signed action plan from the student’s doctor will be required from parents which will provide information to first aid staff regarding administration.
For safety reasons parents may want their child to have a mobile phone for before or after school use. Students may not have their mobile phones with them during school time; students should hand in their mobile phones at the Front Office before school and pick them up at the end of the day. The school does not take responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged devices that have not been handed in to the front office.
