Our School - Policies

Aerosols and Sprays - Download
Many students and staff at Cardiff High School suffer from asthma, and a number suffer from severe allergies and anaphylaxis. Aerosols, sprays and perfumes can act as triggers for people who suffer from these conditions, resulting in symptoms such as asthma attacks, headaches, including migraines, and in extreme cases, anaphylactic shock. In addition, aerosols can be dangerous as they contain flammable liquids and can also cause harm if inhaled.
For these reasons, aerosols and sprays are banned from school premises and all excursions, after school activites and sporting events.
