The Health Team is an important part of pastoral care at Scots College and works closely with House Deans, Tutors, Chaplains, and other staff within the College to support health and wellbeing with a holistic focus. There are two Registered Nurses on-site based in the College’s Health Centre. The Health Centre is open every school day during term time from 8.30 am to 3.30 pm. This is a confidential service.
At Scots College, the role of these nurses is to manage the College Health Centre and provide nursing care to students (including boarding students) and staff, through nursing assessment, interventions/treatment, and referrals to other supports within the College, and communicate with parent/caregivers around recommended follow-up, if required. This includes first aid and support for long-term or ongoing health concerns. The Health Team also coordinate external health care provider visits, such as Regional Public Health. Currently is includes vision screening, mobile dental providers, and immunisations.
All students need to see a nurse before arranging to go home sick. If your child or young person is unwell they need to stay at home or be able to be collected from school. Parents/Caregivers will be contacted if your child needs to go home.
Any students requiring support or intervention for medical conditions whilst at school require an individual Health Care Plan. Students with Diabetes they will also need a Management Plan. These can be found below. Please complete this and return it to the Health Centre via email or in person.
To ensure medications are safely administered at school parents/caregivers need to complete the Medicines Authority Form and return this to the Health Centre via email or in person. Students are not to self-medicate at school. The Medication Administration Authority Form can also be found below. Please complete this and return it to the Health Centre via email or in person.
