For all students requiring medication while at school (Asthma puffers, Panadol, allergies etc) the parent/caregiver must complete an 'Administration of Medication at school' form available on the related link or from the school office.
No medications can be given to students without this form being completed and signed by parents/caregivers.
The form is designed to record the administration of medication to a student by school personnel. For students who require more than one medication, a separate form needs to be completed for each additional medication.
All medication must have a valid pharmacy label, which includes the name of the prescribing health practitioner to confirm that is prescription medication. Any changes to doses must be authorised by the prescribing practitioner and new labels need be accompanied with the medication.
School staff complete the medication form each time a student is administered medication to keep an accurate record of all medication given at school.
