You will also need to provide Supporting Documentation:

Birth certificate or identity documents
When enrolling your child, you will be asked to show your child’s Birth Certificate (original or certified copy) or birth extract or equivalent identity documents.  When supporting evidence cannot be provided, the principal considers the particular circumstances.  Parents are reminded that providing false information is grounds for cancellation. All school documentation should refer to the child’s name as it appears on the official identification certificate (where that has been provided).  However, if families want to use a different name on a daily basis it is reasonable for the principal to agree.  In this way the child can be known to all at the school by the preferred name and the legal name appears only on any documentation.

Immunisation certificate
On enrolment you will be asked to provide your child’s Immunisation Certificate.  Please be aware that if your child has not been immunised (or the immunisation records have not been sighted) and and there is  outbreak of a vaccine preventable disease such as measles of mumps at the School, your child will be exempted from school while the disease runs its course.  For measles for example, non-immunised contacts will be excluded from  school for 14 days after the  appearance of  the rash  in the last case identified in the school, unless the contact was immunised within 72 hours of first exposure.  To obtain your child’s immunisation records go to the Department of Health website at the following address:

To obtain your child’s immunisation records, you can be assisted by the Department of Health via this Immunisation Records link.

Student Healthcare Summary Form 1
All students require an up to date Student Health Care Summary which is available from the school.  The Student Health Care Summary:

Provides contact details for use in a medical emergency;

Seeks informed consent from parents for any necessary sharing of student’s health information;

Informs parents that in a medical emergency, they will be expected to meet the cost of the ambulance;

Asks parents to identify essential health information that could affect their child in an emergency eg. allergy to penicillin;

Asks parents to list any health conditions their child has and to advise the school if support is required from school staff;

If support is required (eg. for severe allergies, diabetes, epilepsy, asthma etc), parents must complete one or more health care plans using a school provided template.

It is essential that the school be informed either at enrolment or on diagnosis of your child’s allergies and whether your child has been diagnosed as being at risk of anaphylaxis. In this case you will be required to provide an Australian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) Action Plan completed by their child’s medical practitioner.  It is important that the ASCIA Action Plan provides details on how to manage mild to moderate allergic reactions and anaphylactic reactions including appropriate medications, as well as listing known allergens.

Medication which is to be taken during school hours MUST be registered at Student Services (Year’s 7-12) or with the Primary Deputy Principal (K-6).  Under no circumstances should medication be carried by students whilst at school.

Court order (if applicable)
Parents must disclose any court orders which contain matters to be taken into account when enrolling the child.
