HEALTHCARE

A healthy mind breeds in a healthy body! In word and in action, the school attempts to convey this message, encouraging children to cultivate healthy habits of eating and exercise. A full-time nurse in each of the campuses oversees the duties of the clinic and attends to the needs of children as and when required.

First aid is immediately administered to a student if he/she sustains an injury during school hours. In cases where stitches, plaster or any other first aid is required, he/she will be taken to a polyclinic in the vicinity of the school and the parents duly informed. The expenses incurred by the school in administering the required treatment will have to be re-imbursed by the parents.

In the event that a student requires to be given prescribed medication during school hours, clear, written instructions must be sent to the school office with the medicine, duly labeled.

In Junior School, once in two months, a complete health check is provided for the children. This includes a dental and eye check, along with the child's hygiene, and a recording of his/her weight and height. Information with regard to any concern is sent home to parents.  The kindergarten sections are provided with a daily dose of calcium by way of a glass of milk under the Milk program.

In Senior School in both the campuses, if a student feels ill, he/she is required to inform any of the staff members of the school office. He/She will then be sent to the clinic and will be attended by the school nurse.

ILLNESS

For the protection of your child, other children and staff, we cannot allow a child to attend school if he or she shows the following symptoms: fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, rash and discharge from the nose, eye or ear.

Parents should inform the school office if their child has contracted any infectious/contagious disease such as strepthroat, impetigo, hepatitis, conjunctivitis, mumps, measles or chicken pox. In such cases the student will not be allowed to attend school till the prescribed quarantine period is over.
