Student Support Officer
The Student Support Officers provide assistance to students with attendance, engagement and mental health concerns. They also support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and families.
Student Support Officer:
The school Medical centre is open from 8.30 am til 3.30pm. Students can walk in during recess and lunch. Students coming during class or between classes need a note in their diaries from their teacher. Students who injure themselves or become unwell will be sent to the Medical centre where appropriate first aid will be given. Students should not contact parents if they are unwell. The correct procedure is to see the First Aid Officer first.
First Aid Officers:
If the First Aid Officer is not present, students who are sick or injured should go to Student Services.
If your child has a medical condition or requires a First Aid Officer to administer medication during the school day, please refer to the Department of Education's website for student health care and administration of medication forms. These forms need to be filled out every year.
Please note; STUDENTS WHO ARE UNWELL SHOULD NOT BE SENT TO SCHOOL.
