Dear Whānau,

There is a virus bug going around at the moment that we can hopefully prevent the spreading of, by following a few tips from health professionals.

Firstly,  PLEASE talk to your children about hand washing and not sharing food (the teachers are already doing this at school), but it is also important that you as parents educate your children on the importance of this.

If your child has been sick, or becomes sick, they need to be kept home for 48 hours after the last vomiting or diarrhoea with this type of bug, not the 24 hours some people think, in the hopes to stop the spread, as this one is very contagious.

Please help us all to keep healthy for the next 12 school days!

Thank you all and God bless
