Student Health & Wellbeing
Sudden Sickness or Accident
Minor injuries or illnesses which occur during the day are normally attended to at school. In more serious situations, every endeavour is made to contact either parent or the emergency contact to arrange for the child to be collected from school. In extreme emergencies the student may be taken to the hospital before the parents are notified.
Please ensure all contact details are up to date.
