INFLUENZA SEASON

We have received information from Regional Public Health with Influenza season nearly upon us.

The main symptoms of influenza are: the sudden onset of a sore throat, headache, fever, cough and sometimes vomiting. Influenza can spread quickly in a school. The advice is to immunise, prevent the spread of the illness and regular handwashing.If your child has these symptoms please keep them at home to help contain any outbreak.
