Health, Security, Safety

The Lycée Français de Singapour features a Health, Security and Safety Department which goal is to guarantee an optimal safety and to look after the health of all the students and staff.

Health

The aim of the Health Department is to promote the good health of the students, their well-being and their good integration in school. It is a place to meet, to seek advice and where emergency care is provided. Its role is also to raise awareness about health issues.

The Health Department is open during school and extra-curricular time and is available on the Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary campuses.

The missions:

  • To take care of the students and to provide them with first aid care on a daily basis. If necessary, nurses can administer basic medication authorised by the school, as well as prescribed medical treatments;
  • To assess the health of the students and screen for diseases;
  • As part of the ECHC and in coordination with the educational team, organise and facilitate education programs and preventive actions (food hygiene, sleep, addictive behaviours,...) ;
  • To offer a space to meet and listen where students can confidentially exchange with the nurse.
Important Information
Punctual Treatments Pursuant to the internal rules of the Lycée Français de Singapour, students are not allowed to carry medication. In case of necessity, the medication can be left at the infirmary (by an adult for Kindergarten children), accompanied by a medical prescription, where the nurses will administer it.
Chronic Diseases Students with long term chronic diseases (asthma, allergies, specific diet) will have to set up an IP (Individualised Protocol). This procedure is done directly via the EDUKA portal, on the "health" tab. 
Contagious Diseases The Health Department must be notified as soon as possible when a child contracts a contagious disease. The child will only be allowed to return to class with a medical certificate of non-contagion.
Mandatory Vaccinations The mandatory vaccinations in Singapore and in France are the DPT (Diphteria, Pertussis, Tetanus,) and MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella). 

A psychologist is available every day from 8:45am to 5:45pm. She welcomes students, parents and teachers; she provides a space for listening and support. She also provides psychological monitoring for students in difficulty. If need be, she may refer families to professionals outside the school.
