Hygiene

Home|Blog|Sport|Music|Contact Us|School Booklet

The class teacher and Principal must be informed if your child has a medical complaint that may affect him/her in school. The class teacher and the Principal must be notified immediately if your child has an infectious illness.

Children should not be sent to school if unwell, in consideration for the other children in the class, as there are no facilities to mind sick children at school.

PERSONAL HYGIENE

Hygiene is an extremely important aspect of the development of your children and we encourage parents to help develop a sense of personal hygiene in their children from a very young age by encouraging their children:

CLEANLINESS OF HAIR

Your child is sharing a room with a large number of children and close contact is unavoidable, therefore:

  1. You should check your child's hair regularly for head lice
  2. Long hair should be tied back at all times
  3. If your child has contracted head lice, inform the teacher who will then send a discreet note to all parents advising them to check heads and follow the correct procedures which include the use of special shampoo (available at chemists only) along with fine combing the child's hair.

If such a case should arise please be extra diligent in your efforts to eradicate the problem.
