Eketahuna Primary School

FIRST AID


Parents/caregivers are requested to fill out the Health section of the enrolment form and to notify any changes that need to be recorded. Please advise us of children requiring regular medication or for whom allergy medication is needed to be kept at school. The school has a medical room and  teaching staff have current first aid certificates. See our Administering Medication and Accident Procedure here. If your child suffers from asthma please advise the school as soon as you are aware they are suffering. Let us know the medication and frequency of administration. The school has an Asthma Policy which can be viewed here.

Children requiring first aid will be sent or escorted to Denise Drysdale who is our designated first aid staff member. If necessary a phone call to the child’s home may need to occur. Denise will make this call and fill out the accident register.

Parents are responsible for any costs incurred when a student needs to be taken to the doctor,  x-rays etc by school staff.

We support, challenge and build confident, connected and actively involved life long learners.
