What are the medical emergency facilities you have in place?
We, at Sherwood High understand how important it is to have medical aid close on hand in an educational institution. We have a well-equipped infirmary where first aid is administered and a nurse is on-call all through the day. The infirmary has 3 sick-beds where children may rest till they are picked up for the day. All minor cuts and wounds are tended to here. Any oral medication administered is done so only after the permission of the parents has been sought.

Any larger medical emergencies are immediately referred to nearby hospitals of Apollo or Vijayashree. Should any child require administration of medicine through the day or follow-up medication, then this is done by the school nurse only after written permission and an authorization letter provided by the parents.

Children are attended to with a great deal of love and compassion. We understand how alarming even the smallest of wounds appears to a child, when they are away from home. We take care of them with all the gentleness in the world.

What is the “Convenience Care Facility” you have?
At Sherwood High, we have several sets of siblings that study with us. School timings are staggered for various classes. We understand that it may be inconvenient to arrange for pick-ups when siblings have different sets of timings. That is why we have introduced a convenience care center where younger ones may wait comfortably till their old siblings are done with class. This is an airy space, with provisions to play, do home-work or simply relax. The center is well staffed with governesses and a supervising teacher to ensure the children are well taken care of.
