Illness

What to do if your child is ill.

When children are unwell they should be kept at home. There are no qualified medical personnel at the school, only basic first-aid, and facilities for looking after sick children are very limited. If a child has been sick they should not return to school until they have been well for at least 48 hours.

If your child is absent from school through illness, please telephone the school, choosing Option 1, and leave a message on the absence line before 8.50am each and every day your child is absent so their absence is accounted for.

Please leave the following information in your message:

  • Your child’s name.
  • His/her class.
  • Reason for absence.
  • Your relationship to the child.

The Admin Team will chase parents who have not phoned in confirming reasons for absence, via phone, text messaging and in writing.

  • Contact information can be found on the right and on the Contact Us page.
