Medical Policy upon Enrolment
All new students are required to have the age appropriate requirements completed before being allowed to start school. All medical documentation must be available for submission and the school reserves the right to request a written letter from a medical practitioner, should circumstances warrant.
Notifications about subsequent age-appropriate vaccine requirements will be sent at the end of the year for those children who still require immunisations. After enrolment has been confirmed, please fill out your child’s current vaccine status on Side A of the Medical Form. Side B must be filled out and signed by a physician, preferably in English. If you are applying from overseas, you may opt to fill the Medical Form (Side A & B) out in your current country.
