Important update from the Health Centre

Important health updates from School Nurse, Ms Debbie James, are below:

Marrapatta Memorial Outdoor Education Centre
If your daughter is participating in an Outdoor Education Program in Terms 3 or 4, please update the medical information noted in her student profile via Parent Lounge. This information is vital for staff to manage students’ medical needs while on camp.

If your daughter requires medication while at school or on camp, please complete the Request for Medication Administration Form.

During Term 3, the School will continue to implement precautionary hygiene measures, including maintaining hand hygiene stations throughout the Main Campus, additional cleaning and floor markings for distancing.

Parents are requested to keep students at home if symptomatic with common cold or flu-like symptoms, until they are asymptomatic and feel well enough to return to school.

Parents of students with an identified health condition are advised to contact Health Centre staff should you wish to discuss any updates, concerns or to establish a management plan.

Students are reminded when presenting to the Health Centre to bring their own water bottle and diary (for documentation of any medication administered).

Immunisations (Meningococcal)
Immunisations for Year 10 students will be held on Tuesday 18 August 2020. Your daughter will be given a card from the Brisbane City Council Immunisation Team for your records.

Following immunisation day, please update your daughter’s student profile on Parent Lounge with her Meningococcal immunisation status.

If you have any questions regarding immunisation records for your daughter, please contact the Brisbane City Council Immunisation Team via 07 3403 8888.
