To ensure the safety of your child we have a set of procedures in place that must be adhered to should your child require us to administer medication during the school day.

If your child requires regular medication, the school requires you to provide authorisation to dispense the medicines.  You must complete the Prescribed Medicines Form online or visit the medical room to complete it with the Health and First Aid Coordinator.

Medications must be handed to the Health and First Aid Coordinator by a responsible adult (parent or helper).  No medications will be accepted from students.

Remaining medication will not be sent home with a student – a parent or carer will need to collect it from our medical room.

DBIS requires parents to provide the date of their child’s last tetanus immunisation.

Please bring our records up-to-date if your child has had a recent booster:



Student Medical Profile

This form should be completed by the parents of new students prior to their child joining DBIS. It is also very important that existing parents keep the medical team up-to-date with any changes in their child's medical conditions and emergency contacts.
