The Diabetes Basics website is for schools, teachers, parents
and kids living with diabetes. Based on the Guidelines for
Queensland Schools, the website provides useful information
and resources for managing diabetes in the classroom, during sport
days and at school camp.
If you are a teacher, or work at a school, there will most
likely be one or more students at the school who have type 1
diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is also on the rise among school
students, though it is still rare to be diagnosed with type 2
diabetes at this young age.
It is critical that school staff receive the necessary education
and assistance to be able to support students with diabetes and
keep them safe at school.
Resources include videos, fact sheets, guidelines and school
plans. There is also information just for kids.
