First Aid at BNPS
First Aid Officers
We have two school-based First Aid Officers who are responsible for administering exceptional First Aid for the students and staff of BNPS, and maintaining health records for students. A First Aid Officer is in attendance every day at recess and lunchtime and as required throughout the day.
Our First Aid Officers can be found in the First Aid Room or at the Office. Please note that they are not a substitute for a qualified doctor and are therefore unable to offer you or your child medical advice or support outside the school First Aid role. School Council respectfully asks parents not to put our First Aid Officers in a situation where refusal to act beyond the role may offend.
Our First Aid Officers are also responsible for providing teachers with first aid supplies for school excursions and school camps and attending major sporting events such as the Cross Country, House Athletics and Swimming Carnivals.
All of our teaching and non-teaching staff are trained in Level 2 First Aid and are rostered on duty when our First Aid Officers are absent. Our First Aid Officers manage a comprehensive and compulsory training program schedule for our staff in Anaphylaxis, Level 2 First Aid, Asthma and Diabetes, and guest speakers are invited to Staff Meetings to bring staff up to date on health issues as required.
