Please ensure that details relating to your contact information together with the contact details of the other parent, in the event of split families, are kept up to date. For the purpose of recording an alternate family, the Alternate Family Information Form can be obtained from the General Office. Issues such as custody and access must be clearly spelt out.
It is also vital that we are made aware of any medical conditions that might impact on your son/daughter’s health. If there are extra medical conditions a Form can be obtained from the General Office to notify us of these.
Some families will be enrolling from Primary Schools where there is whole school student insurance. It is important that parents note that Kyneton High School does not have student insurance cover. Parents and Guardians are generally responsible for paying the cost of medical treatment for injured students, including any transport costs. Most medical costs will be refundable by Medicare. If you are a member of an ambulance or health insurance fund, you may also be able to claim transport or other expenses from the fund.
The Department of Education and Training does not hold accident insurance for school students. However, the Department is aware of two insurers, JUA Underwriting Agency Pty. Ltd. And Willis Australia Ltd., that provide accident insurance policies for students. These policies provide specific benefits for students who are injured in accidents for a reasonably low cost. Other insurers may also do so.
If your child is unwell or injured at school, we have qualified First Aid Trained Staff who will make every effort to ensure that your child is comfortable until you can arrange collection. We have a dedicated First-Aid person available throughout the school day. In the event of a serious accident and we are unable to contact you an ambulance will be called.
