Communication @ St Joachim's
Administration of Medication at School
Occasionally students will be required to take medication while at school. All medications are administered in our first aid room (with the exception of asthma medication which is kept with the student).
Parents must fill in the Administration of Medication form and bring it to the school office with the medication clearly named. Medication cannot be brought to school by a child with the exception of asthma medication.
Same-Day Notification of Unexplained Student Absences
Parents and carers have an obligation to notify the school of their child’s absence as soon as possible on the day of absence using the school’s communication app - Skoolbag.
School Attendance Guidelines
From the end of Term 2 2018, all Victorian government schools must contact parents/carers as soon as practicable on the same-day of an unexplained student absence.
The same-day notification requirement supports the safety and wellbeing of all students. Schools need to know when and why a child is absent and parents/carers need to know if their child is not at school.
