Immunisation


The ACT Department of Health advises that all children attending school in the ACT should be immunised against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio, measles, mumps, rubella and HIB (Haemophilus influenza type b). We would ask that you check your child's present immunisation status to see whether it is complete for his/her age. ACT Public Health regulations require schools to request proof of up to date immunisation when enrolling. Failure to provide this may result in your child being excluded from school should an outbreak of an infectious disease occur. A copy of exclusion periods for students with infectious diseases is available. Parents are asked to adhere closely to these requirements unless medical advice to the contrary is provided in writing.

Infectious Diseases and Exclusion Period


The ACT Health Department has supplied the following information regarding the exclusion periods for the more common communicable childhood diseases. For further information go to the Departmental Policy on Infectious Diseases.

Insurance


The school does not carry personal accident insurance for students. Parents are advised to take out their own personal accident insurance for their families.
