Health Facilities

The Health office is a spacious facility with five beds. It contains diagnostic and treatment devices to handle basic emergencies and common conditions. The Health Office is located in Room No. 1110.

All classrooms contain small First Aid Kits. Five AED’s (Automated External Defibrillator) are available in different locations inside the Campus.

Emergency Preparedness

Procedures are reviewed for emergency situations on a regular basis. All faculty members are trained in Emergency First Aid, CPR and AED.

In case of a medical emergency, the following procedures take place: First Aid administration, Parent and Section Principal notification. Should the child require care at an emergency facility and can be moved safely, the student will be taken by Medical Staff in an ambulance to one of the Apollo Hospitals.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If your child has a fever, sore throat, stomach upset/pain, or respiratory complaint, please keep your child home until they feel better. This will help them recover faster and prevent any contagious diseases from spreading to other students. Please inform the school reception if your child will be absent.

No child with a temperature equal to or above 37.5 C (99.6 F) should be sent to school. A child who has a temperature equal to or above 37.5 C will be sent home from school. A child needs to be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.

A child who has been given a medical order to stay home and rest because of ill health or injury must not attend school. For serious or persistent illnesses, please send a doctor’s note to the health office certifying that your child is healthy enough to return to school. Students with an infectious disease are required to present a doctor’s statement indicating there is no longer any risk of disease transmission to others.
