It seems the school board has updated their anaphylaxis policy but it's still not great.
Quote:
Schools must arrange specialist anaphylaxis training for staff where a student in the school has been diagnosed as being at risk of anaphylaxis. Specialist training includes practical instruction in how to use an adrenaline autoinjector (EpiPen® and Anapen®).

It is recommended that training be conducted every two years. However, schools can make decisions about conducting training more frequently on the basis of:
 turnover of staff
 enrolment of new students
 changing needs of students
 updates made to students' individual health care plans.

As many school staff as possible should attend training including school administrative staff and casual staff who are working in the school on that day. Schools should consider extending an invitation to their scheduled training session to other school community members as appropriate. This can include casual staff who are not already working on that day, the school canteen manager, staff from the Out of School Hours Centre associated with the school.
