 IMPORTANT CHANGE TO IMMUNISATION RECORDS FOR 2019

Due to recent changed implemented by Department of Health we would like to inform you that we can no longer accept documentation that is captured in the ‘Purple Immunisation Book’. It is now a requirement that parent/guardians provide Australian Immunisation Record (AIR) for children. The Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) records information about immunisations given to children who live in Australia.

Please note for enrolment purposes, we can only accept the AIR history statement as proof of immunisations and this must be less than 2 months old

It is important to keep the school up to date with your child’s vaccination records. Please give any updated records to the front office so we can enter these details in to the student record system.

Parent or guardians of children under 14 years of age can request an AIR history statement by:

    • Positive peer friendships
    • Academic performance
    • Behaviour
