Student Health and Well Being

Emergency Contact Details


It is common for parents/carers to have changes in mobile contact numbers, change of employers and other life events that result in changes to emergency contact numbers. We ask that Parents/Carers please ensure that if your contact details change to please contact the office on 9218 6850 or visit the office to ensure your details are updated on the school records. It can be distressing to students if they are unwell or in the event of an emergency if staff are unable to contact a family member/friend.
