Medical and Accidents
It is important that sick children are kept at home for their own comfort as well as the comfort of other children and staff. If a child becomes ill or is injured at school, appropriate First Aid will be given and if necessary parents will be notified and asked to take their child home. If emergency treatment is required, parents will be notified immediately and the child will be transferred by ambulance to hospital. In such cases ambulance services and treatment are free. If prescription or over the counter medicine is to be taken at school it must be given to the Front Office in the original packaging, with a completed Medical Authorisation and Administration Record form. All students who have an ongoing condition (e.g. asthma, diabetes, epilepsy) must have a treatment plan completed by parents and their GP and lodged at the school. Plan proformas are available from the Front Office.
Information on a child's health status (e.g. epilepsy, diabetes) is appreciated at enrolment or upon diagnosis.
Exclusion periods for infectious or communicable illnesses are provided on a separate sheet in the enrolment package. Confirmation of immunisation is required upon enrolment for all students enrolling in the ACT system.
Music Tutor Program
The Macgregor Music Tutor Program, organised by a sub-committee of the P&C Association, provides individual professional tuition in a range of instruments. Lessons are conducted at the school, during class time. Times are rotated so that students do not continually miss out on the same subject in their class. Recitals are held at the end of the year to enable students to experience performing in the presence of an audience. Further information is available from the Front Office.
