Re. COVID-19 (Corona virus)
As information is supplied to us from the Ministry of Education, we believe it is important to pass it on to you. As you are aware, in relation to COVID-19 we take our lead from the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health, and local Medical Officers. What is happening with Covid-19 is changing daily, our aim is to be vigilant to ensure the safety of everyone.
We are very much in the phase of “KEEP IT OUT”. Although our focus is on COVID-19, the information given throughout this newsletter is useful to protect us all from influenza as we head into the winter months. Prevention, education, and information remain a priority for us. Our students, our staff and us as a community have a very large role in preventing the spread of COVID-19 through:
• Awareness – know the symptoms and where to get good information
• Vigilance – stay away if you are ill
• Good hygiene – hand washing and drying, good cough and sneeze etiquette will all help prevent spread of a range of ills as we move into cold and flu season
Stay safe everyone.
Please stay tuned to our social media and school app for information as req’d
