The health, safety and wellbeing of all at Mary Queen of Heaven is paramount to us. A fully stocked and supervised First Aid space, ensures that all of our student’s needs are met at any time of the school day.
Many thanks to the generosity of Jason Sassine at JASON real estate who has kindly sponsored the set-up of our First Aid room for 2023. Our school will begin with a fully stocked First Aid space catering to all triage and medical needs.
Health & Nutrition
Health and Nutrition are explicitly taught as part of our curriculum. Students are encouraged to make good food choices, however, we also celebrate with ‘sometimes’ foods. Creating and supporting a balanced diet is what we promote.
Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction to a substance, most commonly nuts, eggs, milk, wheat, soy, seafood, some insect stings and medications. We have an Anaphylaxis Management Policy in place, to provide a safe and supportive environment in which children diagnosed at risk of anaphylaxis can participate equally in all aspects of schooling.
The Policy contains individual management plans for each child at risk, a communication plan to inform staff, parents and students about anaphylaxis and the school's policy and procedures to ensure staff training and emergency responses.
We are an ‘Asthma Friendly School’. This program aims at improving the quality of life, health outcomes and well-being for school children with asthma. Asthma education is provided to all staff. Asthma Action Plans/Student Asthma Records are kept centrally and plans and protocols are in place regarding medication and sharing of information with the community.
