When our door swings open we never know who will come through, and whether we will have to deal with an issue related to a headache or heartbreak! Seeing as the kids are between the ages of five and nineteen years old we encounter a diverse amount of issues and challenges which means one day never resembles the next. This is what makes the job as a school nurse at BIS so exciting and interesting. It gives us a great sense of satisfaction to feel as though we can make a difference not only providing day to day care, but also being in a position to educate young people to ensure that they continue to lead healthy lives.
Our Health Department is open Monday - Friday. Campus hours are located below, right.
Our goal is to provide a quality health service for all students and staff members. Our main task is to take care of the student’s health problems and injuries that have taken place during the school day.
You will receive in your welcome package the Medical Forms 'Permission Form' and 'Field and Athletic trips'. Please be so kind and fill these papers out for the first day of school and send them A.S.A.P. to the Health Department.
Medication at School
With parent’s advance written permission, students may be given non-prescription medication during the school day to treat mild conditions such as headache, menstrual cramps or a sore throat. A medical evaluation will be requested if a student requires non-prescription medication more than three times per month for the same symptom.
Students with diagnosed medical conditions may need emergency medication during the school day. These medications are kept locked in the Health Department, together with the student’s name, class, condition and dosage. A parental permission slip and/or a doctor’s permission slip are required along with these medications authorising their use. Please request a Form from the Health Department if required.
If a short-term illness requires the use of antibiotics or other prescription drugs, the parents should, if possible, arrange for such medication to be taken before or after school.
If medication must be given during school hours it must be labeled with the student’s name, a current medication form stating the dose, the time it is to be given and parent’s signature. The medication will be kept in the Health Department.
We will assist in giving the student the medication. Please be aware Primary and Secondary School students are not permitted to carry their own medication in school or during school trips. In special circumstances please contact the registered nurse.
