We strongly encourage all parents/carers to have up-to-date ambulance cover. Parents/carers of students who do not have student accident insurance/ambulance cover are responsible for paying the cost of any medical expenses such as ambulance costs if their child is injured or requires an ambulance at school, or whilst participating in a school activity. Parents/carers can purchase insurance policies from commercial insurers.
