Parents are informed as soon as possible in all cases of illness or injury at school. In cases of serious illness or accident, every effort will be made to contact either parent so that the course of action to be taken may be discussed. In the event that neither parent can be contacted quickly, a ambulance will be summoned and the child transported to a hospital. Minor first aid cases, such as bruises, abrasions, scratches etc, will be dealt with by a teacher on duty or the school office. Parents who may have other wishes in this regard should contact the office so that their wishes may be entered on their family records. Sick children should be kept at home.
