Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:
school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
supporting individual students who need help with health issues
providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.
Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.
The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.
The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.
Live life well at school is a joint program of the Department of Education and Training and NSW Health. The program aims to enhance teachers' knowledge, skills and confidence in teaching nutrition education and physical activity including fundamental movement as part of the Kindergarten to Year 6 PDHPE (personal development, health and physical education) syllabus.
Live life well at school strives to have more students, more active, more often and equips students to make healthy eating choices. This program also promotes 'whole school' initiatives consistent with classroom practice and encourages strong community links.
If your child requires medication to be administered during school hours, a medication form must be completed and returned to the school principal. Students are not permitted to have any medication in their school bags, except for asthma inhalers.
In general, schools only administer medication prescribed by a medical practitioner. Schools treat over the counter medications, like panadol in the same way as prescribed medication.
