It is important to find any infection early as treatment is then relatively easy. Head lice can spread quickly and parents should notify the school if they are aware of any infection.
School inspections can be made at any time on the authority of the Shire Health Inspector and are made in all schools whenever an infection is suspected. Parents are trained by the School Nurse to do our inspections. We do require helpers for this service so if you are able to please let the school office know ASAP. A fact sheet about head lice is available here.
Illness at School
All students are expected to read nightly or participate in Reading Club.
Diaries are a main source of communication and should be signed each night and returned to school daily.
Throughout the year there are many opportunities for students from our school to participate in local sporting activities. We also encourage students to pursue their talents and compete at Wimmera and further events. We offer athletics, swimming, cross country, Lightning Premiership and other coaching opportunities as they arise during the year.
