2020 Community Health

JRAtDW8pxTMNq0.jpg

Over the past couple of days, we have seen in the media the impact of people being complacent or not following health messages and guidelines on individuals and the wider community. Last term I wrote about the new language we were learning when it comes to dealing with a pandemic and our new normal. We heard the message through the media and health directives that ‘We are all in this together.’ With recent events it is most important that we continue to promote and comply with all health directives. In doing this we also ask for your support and
assistance to ensure the health and well-being of all within our community.

At school we continue to remind students to:
  • wash their hands regularly with soap and water, particularly before and after eating, and after going to the toilet;
  • use alcohol-based hand sanitiser if soap is unavailable;
  • cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of their elbow;
  • dispose of used tissues in the bin immediately;
  • apply social distancing as far as possible at school. If your child develops flu like symptoms, please:
  • keep your child at home and seek advice about undergoing COVID testing
  • contact your doctor or contact 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84) immediately
  • ​call ahead to the medical centre or doctor’s surgery, advising of your child’s symptoms​.  Parents, we thank you for your anticipated understanding and support as we strive to keep our whole community safe. We will continue to monitor and implement all health directives if changes occur and will keep you posted of any changes through our normal communication processes.
