Qualified First Aiders

Lilydale Heights College has a duty of care to provide First Aid to students and staff as required by the DET.

Qualified First Aiders are provided by the school during the hours of 8:15am and 3.40pm so that immediate attention to illness or injury is available to students at all times. All hold current First Aid Certificates.

The First Aid Coordinator can be contacted on 9735 1133.

Sick Bay Procedures

Students who become unwell or injured at school are to inform their teacher and report to First Aid with a pass from class, or during recess / lunch can attend themselves.

If students are unwell in the morning, it is best for your child to remain at home.

If it is deemed that your child needs to be collected, parents/guardians or your emergency contact person will be notified to arrange transport home. It is vital that the student contact details are kept up to date with the General Office.

Students are not permitted to ring their parents/guardians (via a mobile telephone) themselves or leave the school without permission.


If your child requires regular medication to be administered during school hours, parents/guardians are asked to contact the First Aid Coordinator prior with details. Written permission to the school must be provided with the medication, clearly labelled, and it will be held in the locked First Aid cabinet. The school will only dispense paracetamol with parent/guardian permission.

First Aid medical supplies are only issued for injuries/incidents that occur at school. Sports strapping or ongoing dressings for previous injuries will not be supplied.
