Does my child need to bring along medicine for self-medication such as paracetamol?



There is no need for students to bring medicine for self-medication. During course, Instructors will provide treatment for students when they fall ill or get injured. Instructors carry basic over-the-counter medication such as painkillers for treatment in the outfield. Also, the OBS medical centres carry over-the-counter medication for common ailment and OBS nurses will assess the condition and issue over-the-counter medication if required.

However, if your child requires prescribed medication for his/her medical condition, ensure the information is provided in the registration form and have your child declare the medication to the instructor. The OBS instructor will verify that the medication is prescribed to his/her name/condition, within the validity date and sufficient for the day.
