General Info
  • Medication and illness


No medication can be administered without written permission from the parent. All medicine must be handed to the class teacher and must be clearly labelled with the child’s name. Medication must not be left in the child’s bag. There is a “medicine book” that parents must fill details of any medication or supplements to be given to your child. Should the book not be completed and signed on a daily basis, staff cannot administer medicine.


Children with upset stomach, rash, temperature or eye infection will not be accepted into the school until the condition has been diagnosed and treated. Children on antibiotics must be kept at home for the first 48 hours of treatment.


  • Playground


The playground is completely fenced and well equipped with jungle gyms and other play equipment. Sand and water play will be available to the children at playtime. The playground is supervised at all times during outside play. No children will be allowed outside without such supervision.


  • Dress


A sun hat is essential. Please pack a wide brimmed hat in your child’s bag every day. Sun block must be applied before school. Please pack sunblock for your child. Please label the sunblock. Please ensure that your child comes dressed in play clothes, as they may be involved in messy play activities from time to time. Please label all clothes and shoes and send a small bag with a change of clothes in case of an accident.


  • Requirements for children 3 years & older.


Please send a water bottle for your child. This will be available for your child to have a drink at any time. Water bottles are sent home daily to be washed. Fresh water is available at all time. Please provide a face cloth with a loop sewn onto one corner. Each child must use their own cloth whenever she/he washes hands. (Clothes to wipe faces are provided. They are used once only and then laundered). We have several transport companies that come highly recommended. The details can be obtained from the school.


  • Requirements for Nursery


Your child will need a blanket for nap time. Nappies must be packed and wet wipes as well as cream that you would like, (if any), to be used on your child. Bottles of formula must be labelled with your child’s name.
