First aid

The physical wellbeing of our students is critical to their ability to learn and thrive.

Students with isolated or ongoing medical issues can be assisted and cared for in Lowther Hall’s First Aid Room which is open every school day from 8.15am – 4.15pm.

Students presenting to the First Aid Room are assessed by the School Nurse, Ms Mardi Corcoran, and may receive treatment if necessary and appropriate. If a student is unwell or requires treatment beyond the scope of School First Aid staff, her parents are contacted and asked to collect her. In the event of a medical emergency, an ambulance will be called. Lowther Hall has its own defibrillator machine for use in the case of sudden cardiac arrest before an ambulance arrives.

Asthma and allergies

Every Lowther Hall staff member receives annual training in asthma and anaphylaxis. All students with asthma or anaphylaxis have their individual response plans prominently displayed in relevant locations. Medications such as Epipens are readily accessible by all staff.
