Health / First Aid

Bandages, comfort and more...

The DBSAA has a first aid station where our students with acute health problems and minor injuries are cared for by our nurses.

The school ensures that a nurse is on site during the entire school period (Monday to Friday from 07.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.). Our school nurses are Feven Techt (three mornings) and Emmy Roman (two mornings), who share the job.

Once a school year, a first aid course is held in which all employees participate. Our nurses also conduct first aid courses in the classes or in the pre-school to familiarize the students with emergency situations.

Sickness notifications

Unfortunately, no matter how much care parents take, children still get sick from time to time. Sickness notifications can be made as follows, stating the first and last name, the group or class and the duration of the absence.


Children of the kindergarten and pre-school are only reported sick at the kindergarten with the first and last name of the child, the group, the type of illness and the expected duration of the absence.

Contact at the kindergarten:
Mobile: +251-955-418125

Primary and secondary education

Primary and secondary school children are reported sick to the secretary’s office, stating the child’s first and last name, the class, the type of illness and the expected duration of the absence. This information is passed on to the class teacher.

After an infectious disease

The sick child is not allowed to attend kindergarten or school again until after recovery. A good recovery is important so that others are not infected and your child is also fit for school!

If pupils return to school or kindergarten after an infectious disease but still need to take medication, a medical certificate must be presented, stating the following information

1. date of earliest possible return to the institution,
2. a clear statement that the child is no longer at risk of infection from the above date, and
3. information on the dose of the medication to be administered, as well as the type and total duration of the intake

Only under these conditions is it possible for the child to return to the institution early and for the nurses to properly administer the medicines prescribed by the doctor to the affected child.

The educational staff is not normally authorised to administer medication to pupils. An exception is the situation during a school trip. In this case, parents of affected children must give their written consent in advance, which expressly authorises the accompanying educational staff to administer medication. This also applies to children with chronic illnesses (asthma, diabetes etc.).

Chronic diseases | allergies

Parents whose child suffers from a chronic illness such as asthma or allergies must inform the school administration so that the relevant information can be passed on to the team of educators, educational staff and nurses.

Emergency situations and accessibility

At least one parent should be permanently available to the school staff and an emergency contact must be designated who is responsible for the child and may make decisions in the absence of the parents. This is the only way to guarantee a smooth health care! Please also fill out our form “For emergencies”.
