Woombye School makes every attempt to cater to children with both emergent and long-term medical conditions. However, like any state school we are bound by strict Education Queensland guidelines regarding medical and first-aid management. If you are unsure of any issue relating to medical conditions and how they relate to your child please contact the school directly.
Minor scratches and abrasions are attended to by the classroom or playground duty teacher.
Sick or injured students are escorted to the sick room in the administration area where they are treated by staff members with first aid certificates. They are adequately supervised until no further treatment or assistance is required or until the casualty is handed over to the ambulance, medical personnel or the parent/carer.
Parents/carers will be advised by phone that their child is sick or injured and will be asked to collect their child from the sick room in the Administration building as soon as possible. In the event of the parent/carers not being contactable, emergency contacts will be advised. Please advise if a person other than the parent/carer will be collecting your child from the school.
