Health & Safety at OLMC
Where possible, student medication should be administered by parents at home at times other than school hours.
As this is not possible in all instances, before the Principal approves school staff to administer prescribed medication to students, there are requirements that must be met. No medication will be administered in school hours except by prior written agreement and approval by the Principal or delegate.
Please read the Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, Hilton Medical Plans, Medication and First Aid Procedure for more information.
