ok so my daughter is anaphalaxys to particular nuts. not only that she is highly allergic to grasses n polin. (not anaphalaxys) among cats n rabbits too
for the rest of the school term my daughter has a relief teacher. one day she was suffering from the grasses quite bad and the teacher wouldnt listen and denied her to get her antihistamine from the office.
hearing that as seeing the affects and how bad my daughter was after school i was furious …. if the relief teacher does not know about this allergy she is unaware of the major life threatening one.
my daughter attempted to advise the relief teacher of her allergies but was ignored.
i do not feel safe haveing her in this class now. (her usual teacher is amazing)
after discussing my anger to the office i recieved a call from the principal expressing her deepest appoligies that clearly there handover system is not good enough. and she will be straight on it to make this aware.
i dont want to sound like an over protective parent but this is my daughters life.
i am saddened that schools do not have the right system in place when it comes to anaphalaxys . its life or death.
