The school infirmary is staffed by a qualified nurse who conducts regular medical check-ups of students and maintains a record of their health. If the doctor believes that a child needs special medical attention, the parents are informed.
Parents are requested not to send sick children to school. This is in the interest of the child and his/her classmates. Medical certificates must be submitted so that the child's results are not affected.
All parents are requested to impart health education to their children. This includes teaching them about the importance of:
- Maintaining personal hygiene
- Exercising regularly
- Sleeping for at least eight hours daily
- Eating a balanced diet
- Drinking boiled or filtered water
- Avoiding ice-creams, other milk products, and eatables from road-side vendors and kiosks
Students with Communicable Diseases
Students who are suffering from communicable diseases such as chicken pox, cholera, measles, mumps, whooping cough, and jaundice must observe the prescribed period of quarantine. Students who are suffering from infectious diseases such as conjunctivitis, dermatitis, and scabies should not be sent to school until they have fully recovered.
Students with Chronic Diseases
Students who are suffering from chronic diseases such as asthma, epilepsy, and heart disease are advised to be under continuous medical supervision of a doctor. Parents are also advised to keep the school infirmary informed about any medical / health problem which may have developed during the academic year.
The medical history of the student must be filled up by the parents in the space provided in the almanac.
Parents are kindly asked to inform the Class Teachers or Principal if their children require regular medication. If the child is carrying medicine on any particular day, we kindly request you to keep us informed about it.
