If your child is not well please keep them at home. It is not fair to expect a child who is unwell to participate in learning activities and we are also conscious of them spreading their illness throughout the class.
Medications at School
If your child requires medication at school a note identifying the child, class, medication name, dosage, and time to be given needs to be sent to the office. The medication should be in the original container.
All medication is dispensed through the office and is signed off on a medication register. If the appropriate permission is not sent with the medication it cannot be given to the student. It is also a good idea to mention to the student’s teacher that there is medication at the office and what time it is to be given.

Working with Children Check
We really value all parent/carer participation in a variety of ways across the school. In order to
enable you to do this you must provide a Working With Children Check. The WWCC is free for volunteers. We ask that all parents, grandparents, friends and carers who assist at the school (or
intend to in the future) apply for the WWCC at www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au
or telephone the information line on 1300 652 879. If you need assistance with this, please come into the office. The school will also need a copy of your WWCC when it has been checked.

SCHOOL FEES UPDATE -
Direct debit forms are available at the Office if families would still like to set up a direct debit. Should any of our families be experiencing financial difficulty and hardship please contact Pauline Hindson by calling the school or by email to make an appointment: firstname.lastname@example.org
