We have:

  • A full time Student Welfare Officer

Student Health

Skye Primary School has a trained first aid officer on staff to assist all students, staff and visitors to our school.

During recess and lunchtime, students are encouraged to report to the teacher on Yard Duty to assist them with minor incidents. Teachers on duty will then provide students with a pass to the sick bay for more serious incidents.

 

Allergies & Anaphylaxis

Some people are highly allergic to bees, insects and certain types of foods.

Severe cases that have been medically diagnosed are referred to as Anaphylaxis. If you child has been medically diagnosed you must complete an epipen action plan and supply to school with a current epipen.

 

Medication

Some students may require prescription medication throughout the day. All medications need to be stored at the office in our sick bay.

Parents will also need to complete the Short Term Medication Form and send this along with the medication to school.

 

Tribes

All students will be taking part in fun activities within their school tribe.
