For more information, visit the student wellbeing section of the department’s website.

Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.

The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.

The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.


Prior to our administration staff giving medication to a student, a signed and completed prescribed medication form (PDF 89KB) must be received.

If is preferable that the medication is delivered to the office by an adult. The original medication package must be sighted by the office staff.

Non Prescribed medication (eg panadol, cough mixture, antihistamine) will not be administered unless accompanied by current instructions from a medical practitioner.

For those students with asthma, the school should have a copy of the most recent Asthma Management Plan developed with your doctor. If you wish, older students may carry their asthma medication in their bags.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.

Emergency procedures

An emergency plan for the orderly evacuation or lockdown of classrooms and all school buildings is in place. Throughout the year these procedures are practised by students and staff.

In a major evacuation of the school due to bush fires the children would be bused to Penrith South Public School.
