School Camp (1): Medication (Oral/Apply)

So, Bran is going for his 2 day 1 night school camp at the NS Home Team next week.  It will be the first time that he is spending a night out without us, the family.

The school camp attendance is compulsory.  A strong reason has to be provided to the school on why the child is not able to attend.  Notification letters were given to the parents to share more about the camp.

Objective of the camp: 

1] To promote social interaction and understanding among Primary 4 students.
2] To provide leadership opportunities for students.
3] To challenge students to think creatively and work Co- operatively as a team.
4] To enable students to experience independent living away from home.
5] For teachers to know Students in a Non-classroom setting.
Deck of notification letter also include:
  • A consent form.
  • Who to contact in case of emergency.
  • Packing list.
  • Shopping list.
Learning something outside the classroom is fun! I hope with this exposure he is able to experience more things and enjoy the first adventure without us.
Packing of stuff. 
I started to prepare some of the items required over the weekend.  Does not want to do a last minute packing otherwise you will just missed out those small little yet important ones.
So the first item that I started packing was Medication (oral/apply)
Medication (Oral). 
  1. Panadol for Cough and Flu.  Can be taken for Fever, body aches and sore throat.
  2. Lactoel Fort for diarrhea.
  3. Fluimucil for Phlegm
  4. Tic Tac – something sweet for the tongue.. in case there is any after-bitter-taste left.

I have also included the dosage and administration on every medication.  This will ensure the child/camp instructor knows what is expected on dosage and how to administer.

Medication (Apply). 

  1. Alcohol Swab
  2. Antiseptic spray for cuts, grazes, bites and stings.
  3. Mosquito Repellent patch

I decided to get the Antiseptic spray instead of cream as this is more easy to use.  As of just clean the wound and spray.  Not need to worry that he will rub his eyes with the cream still on his fingers etc.

ok, packing of medication is completed.  One item off the list!
