DAA has an onsite health clinic equipped to deal with any medical emergency that may occur at school. A full time Doctor is supported by 3 full time nurses and the clinic is regularly inspected by the Department of Health Authority. The clinic manages all student health records and ensures all necessary provisions are in place to best assist students in their daily activities. This includes the storage and management of personal medication and the training of staff that work with children with specialist medical needs.
New families to DAA are asked to complete health forms for each student and submit them directly to the Health Clinic. In addition, new families are asked to submit a copy of the student’s recent immunization record(s) in English. A meeting with our nurses is required before the first day of school only for students with medical conditions/concerns.
