Important information – Allergy notification

PublishingPageContent

We currently have students enrolled in our school who have a life threatening allergy to peanut and nut products - traces of which can be found in many foods. Contact with even very small amounts of these foods can cause a severe allergic reaction.

We can all assist in managing hazards for these children in a number of ways:

  • Be mindful of foods that you send in to school-wherever possible, refraining from sending foods that contain peanuts (eg: peanut butter and muesli bars containing nuts or whole nuts).
  • Discuss with teachers in advance of sending foods to school to celebrate birthdays.
  • Clearly label your child's drink bottles and lunch boxes.

Within the school there are additional strategies that we will put in place including no sharing of food, food utensils and food containers. Where cooking programs occur, alternatives to peanut products including peanut based oil will be used. Further promotion of hand washing before and after eating as well as washing tables and benches will occur.

We thank you in advance for your assistance with this important matter.
