Immunisation and Medication Policy
This Student Medical Details form is provided to all students. It is a requirement of Newington College that the form be completed and returned prior to each student’s commencement at the College.
At Newington we recommend that students have all their usual childhood vaccinations.
Under the NSW Public Health Act 2010, children without proof of immunisation may be asked by Public Health Officials to stay at home during an outbreak of vaccine preventable disease.
Parents of students with conditions that require regular medication should in particular:
- Ensure that the College is aware of the student’s condition so that appropriate arrangements can be made for the administration of medication
- Inform the College when students bring medication into the College
- Provide parental permission to the Headmaster or Head of Campus authorising College staff to administer medication. The submission of this form will be deemed ‘parental permission’.
