The Health Clinic is open every school day from 8.00 a.m. until 4.00 p.m. and is staffed by the School Nurse.
If a student is unwell or injured they will be referred to the Health Clinic. Junior students may need to be escorted to the Health Centre and Middle and Senior students will be escorted if they are having difficulty walking.
Students leaving class to go to the Health Clinic must have a note/or message in their diaries. If students have a fever or obvious illness/injury requiring medical assistance, parents will be contacted by phone.
To ensure the safety of medication administration, all medications are to be brought to the health clinic. Parents are requested to complete a medication administration form and give it to the nurse. The student is to come to the health centre for the medication. If parents are unable to come to the Health Clinic, written instructions can be sent with the student by the parent or guardian.
Boarders who regularly require prescription drugs to be taken will need to supply such drugs in their original container and provide written consent from parents for their dispension. Students are generally not permitted to keep medication in their rooms without a specific permission of the House Parent. This includes patent preparations such as Panadol and cough medicines. If students need medication then staff will administer it. Students with asthma will carry their inhalers, but in general students should not have medication in their possession.
Students with specific medical conditions e.g. asthma, food allergies, diabities are monitored by the Health Clinic staff who are available to assist students and their parents. Health Clinic staff also ensure that other Peace staff members are aware and educated in the special needs of students with medical conditions
