It is also very important that all children are provided with the medication they will need while on camp. Even those who are normally healthy are more prone to headaches etc. as they get so tired.
 
Please remember to have all medication/s labelled by the pharmacist with your child’s name and the required dosage, as we are legally not able to administer even a Panadol without this labelling.
 
Also, if you suspect your child may be coming down with an illness could you please take them to the doctor prior to camp, in case they need medication. You may also wish to consider providing your child with a travel sickness preventative as we have quite a long bus trip. The pharmacist can advise you on this.
 
All medication will need to be handed in prior to departure at the office.
Please note that the attached Camp Consent Forms:
·         Activity Consent Form and approval

Teachers will begin to allocate cabins/ tents in negotiation with your child. If you have any questions regarding materials required for camp, cabin allocations and or campout please do not hesitate to contact your child’s classroom teacher.
