Most staff are Level 2 Workplace First Aid trained with current CPR and anaphylaxis training accreditation.   We are an Asthma Friendly School which involves annual briefings and updates on the latest management of asthma. Our Sick Bay is well equipped with basic requisites – bandaids, spacers, slings etc.

Please remember:

It is a parent/carer’s responsibility to provide their child’s medication for asthma (and a spacer) or severe allergies and any other medical conditions.

A Medication Authority Form is available for parents/carers to complete if a student requires any medication whilst at school.

Sunsmart

All Hallam PS students are required to wear broad brimmed bottle green hats in terms one and four and during the start of Term 2 and the end of Term 3, if deemed necessary, for all outdoor activities.   NO HAT/ NO PLAY.

Please remember it is advisable to continue using sun protection throughout the term break and for a few weeks in term two. If UV levels are still above three please continue to Slip on sun protective clothing, Slop on SPF 30 or higher sunscreen, Slap on a wide brimmed hat, Seek shade and, if practical,  Slide on wrap-around sunglasses.

Please check the daily sun protection times to be sure. These are available on the free SunSmart app and widget, on our home page, and in the weather section of the newspaper or at sunsmart.com.au     Even in the cooler autumn weather, that UV exposure all adds up.
