With the end of year fast approaching, the thoughts of many have turned to class parties. Class parties are great fun but can be a stressful time for the 22 students at our school with life-threatening food allergies (anaphylaxis), their parents and their teachers.

Students with food allergies and anaphylaxis bring their own foods along to class parties. However, if their parents are able to attend the party to supervise their eating, the students may be able to eat some of the foods provided by others. So, to help keep our anaphylactic students safe, would all parents please keep the following in mind when sending along foods for class parties:

  • Do not send in any foods containing nuts.
  • Do not send along other foods which individual teachers have asked you to avoid.

  • List all the ingredients in home-made items.

  • Send shop-bought products along unopened (with a serving plate please!) so that ingredients can be checked.

Our parents of students with anaphylaxis understand that we can never claim to be a nut-free or other allergen free school and, indeed, that it is better that we teach anaphylactic students to manage themselves and their environment rather than promote a false sense of security. However, if the above guidelines are followed by all parents, the stresses associated with class parties may be alleviated.

Thanks for your support,

Sally Calvert, Anaphylaxis Coordinator
Hilda Hallinan and Samantha Meaden, School Nurses
