Responsible Behaviour Plan

Dulacca State School is committed to providing a safe, respectful and disciplined learning environment for students and staff, where students have opportunities to engage in quality learning experiences and acquire values supportive of their lifelong wellbeing.

Our Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students is designed to facilitate high standards of behaviour so that the learning and teaching in our school can be effective and students can participate positively within our school community. 

The plan has been developed in consultation with staff, students and parents. It has been approved by the Dulacca P&C. Download our school’s Responsible Behaviour Plan (PDF, 351KB) or contact the school for a copy.

Uniform

Our school is a uniform school. All children are encouraged to wear the school uniform. Hats and suitable footwear are an essential part of the uniform, everyday.

The school has a set uniform in the school colours – navy/sky/white which can be purchased through the uniform Convenor who can be contacted via the school office.

Absences

It is compulsory for children to attend school each day. Schooling is compulsory in Queensland for students until the age of 16.  The school is obliged to investigate unexplained absences. When a child has been or will be absent, parents are required to contact the school and provide a reason for their child’s absence. This can be done by:

  • written note
  • phone call
  • email

Medication

Should students require medication to be administered by a staff member then a medical form (PDF, 85KB) must be completed and signed by the parent / guardian (alternatively contact the school for a copy). All medication to be administered by staff will be actioned at the administration office. A register of medication is maintained.

In schools, self-administration may apply to students who are assessed by their medical practitioner and parents/caregivers and approved by the Principal as capable of administering their own medication while participating in school activities.  Self-administration of medication may include:

  • monitoring blood sugar levels and the injection of insulin for diabetes
  • inhaling medication such as "Ventolin" for asthma
  • orally administering anti-convulsing medication for epilepsy
  • orally administering enzyme replacements for cystic fibrosis

Students approved to carry their own medication should demonstrate practices of secure storage of medication that may be potentially harmful to other students and safe disposal of injecting equipment.
