The College operates a Health Centre and employs two Health Care Co-ordinators who share the full time load. The Centre operates each day from 8:30am to 3:30pm.

The role of the Health Care Co-ordinators is to administer First Aid and dispense medication as required. A number of staff hold current First Aid certificates in addition to the Health Centre service.

When students are taken to the Health Centre, they are treated and returned to class within an hour; or when the student is not well enough, parents are contacted to come and collect them. To facilitate this, it is important that the College has up to date contact information for parents.

At the time of enrolment in the College, parents are required to fill out medical forms detailing their child’s medical condition. It is important that the College is advised if this information changes.

 

Allergy Awareness

Kingsway Christian College is an allergy aware school and as such we ask that parents provide us with information concerning any known allergies suffered by their child/children. We request that in the case of anaphylaxis, parents issue the College with a medical plan from the doctor concerned.
