Keeping Healthy

July 2013
With the cold weather looking like it is staying for a little longer, coughs, colds and other illnesses will be around for a little while longer as well.   Please ensure you and your children practice good health and hygiene routines.   

For example: 
                            wash your children's hands before morning tea;
                            encourage children to cover their coughs and sneezes;
                            use the provided tissues;
                            use the hand sanitiser (on the kitchen bench and by the sign-in sheets);

If you or your child has experienced vomiting or diarrhoea, please ensure you stay at home for 48 hours after the last presentation of these symptoms.  

Hand, Foot and Mouth
The Wellington region has seen a high number of cases of Hand, Foot and Mouth disease in recent weeks.
