Strict guidelines for medicines in schools

Strict new procedures have been developed by the Queensland Government regarding prescription and over-the-counter medication in schools. Our school is committed to working closely with parents and students to highlight the risk of students misusing these medications.

Download a copy of the Administration of medication form (DOC, 46KB) to accompany any medication requirements during school hours.

All parents/caregivers must:

  • notify our school in writing of a health condition requiring medication at school

  • request in writing if school staff are to administer medication or assist in the management of a health condition

  • notify our school in writing of any requests and/or guidelines from medical practitioners including potential side effects or adverse reactions

  • provide the medication in the original labelled container to the nominated staff member

  • ensure the medication is not out of date and has an original pharmacy label with the students name, dosage and time to be taken

  • notify our school in writing when a change of dosage is required. This instruction must be accompanied by a letter from a medical practitioner

  • advise our school in writing and collect the medication when it is no longer required at school.
