2018 School Satisfaction Survey

The annual School Satisfaction Survey has recently been sent out for parents, carers and students to complete. The survey will be available for completion until Monday 3rd September.

It is one of the most powerful tools for you to provide feedback to Dickson College, so that we can provide the most effective education possible. You will have recently received an email from ‘Dickson College Admin.’ that contains all of the information required for you to access the survey. If you are unable to access the survey online or require the survey in another language, please contact the front office for assistance.

Your participation is appreciated.

Free Vaccine for Year 11 & 12 students to protect against meningococcal disease

The ACT government is funding a free meningococcal vaccine to young people aged
between 16 and 19 year olds in 2018 only. To date, this has been available through general
practitioners. In semester two of 2018, the free vaccine will be available through the Schools
Health Team when they visit the school.
Meningococcal disease is a rare but severe infection that occurs when meningococcal
bacteria invade the body from the throat or nose and enter the bloodstream. The disease
can progress very quickly and can lead to death or permanent disability.
Meningococcal disease is caused by multiple strains of meningococcal bacteria. This free
vaccine protects against meningococcal A, C, W and Y strains.
Young adults and older teenagers are at increased risk of meningococcal disease. They are
more likely to carry the bacteria in their nose and throat, and more likely to spread the
bacteria to others.
To learn more about meningococcal disease, the meningococcal ACWY vaccine and how
you can prepare for vaccination, visit:
