Push up Challenge
This year we are taking part in the Push-Up Challenge. The challenge runs for the first 24 days of June and it’s aim is to raise awareness and conversation around mental health and suicide. We are encouraging students and their family and friends to take part in teams of up to 10 to reach a collective goal of 3,139 push-ups from the 1st June to 24th June. If you’re in a team of 10, that’s only 14 push-ups a day! You can find more information about the via this link https://www.thepushupchallenge.com.au
What to do if your child is unwell – A message from the Nurses
COVID-19 infections are still very much present in the community and we are now also dealing with seasonal cases of influenza and other respiratory viruses, as well as gastroenteritis. If your child is feeling unwell before school (e.g. sore throat, cough, runny nose, fever, or with vomiting or diarrhoea), even with mild symptoms, please do not send them to school, they must stay at home until they are well again, even if their RAT test is negative.
If your child has had symptoms of gastroenteritis, they need to stay home until they are feeling well and symptoms have stopped for at least 24 hours.
The Nurses will call Parents/Carers to collect any students who become unwell whilst at school and we thank you for your continuing cooperation with these measures to minimise the spread of infections at school.
