Allergies/Anaphylaxis and food at school


To support the health of all our students we ask parents to refer to our information flyer on Allergies and Anaphylaxis.

Families are asked NOT to send nut products to school and to encourage their sons/daughters awareness of allergy management in the case where a class mate or peer may have an identified allergy.

Class teachers will advise families of any known allergy in the individual class. In these cases parents will be encouraged not to send some products to school. We do appreciate your support in these situations. Our students’ health is our priority at all times.

In situations such as birthdays, we encourage parents to consider individual water ice-blocks instead of a birthday cake for any class celebration – the children just love these treats on a special day. 

Requirements for students at risk of anaphylaxis


If your child is at risk of anaphylaxis, it is important for you to provide the school with your child’s emergency medication and their ASCIA Anaphylaxis Action Plan, completed by your doctor. This Anaphylaxis Action Plan provides the instructions for the school to administer your child’s medication in an emergency, which is specific to respond to their health condition.  

If you have any concerns about your child’s health condition, please contact either Mr Michael Frearson, Mrs Larissa Wills or Mrs Deborah Driver.
