Administration of Medication

If your child requires any short term or long term medication, our school requires written authority from parents/carers.

Short Term Use of Medication (up to two weeks)

For administration of short term medication such as a course of antibiotics, please complete and submit a Short Term Medication Form


  • The medication must be clearly labelled with the child’s name and provided in packaging from the pharmacy or the manufacturer.
  • Documentation must be signed and dated by a parent or carer and provided to the school with the medication.

Long Term Use of Medication

For a period of more than two weeks, complete the Long Term Medication Form.

If you have not already done so, you may need to complete a Student Health Care Summary and a Management/Emergency Response Plan for your child’s particular health need.  In most instances, this documentation will have been completed when you enrolled your child or as part of the school’s process for updating student health care records.  If this is not the case, please discuss with the Deputy Principal.
