education and learning will always involve reading of one sort or another. Please see the link below for an interesting piece of research on reading in a digital world:
District Athletics Carnival
Congratulations to all of our students who represented our school at the District Athletics Carnival held last Friday. Great attitude, manners and sportsmanship were displayed by all students - well done.
At this stage final times and positions are still being reviewed to determine which students will represent us at the next level - our regional carnival. Individual results will be available later in the week.
Flu season is here and schools are notorious places for spreading germs
Influenza is spread from person-to-person through the coughing or sneezing of infected people. Remind your child about these good hygiene practices to minimise the spread of infection:
· Anyone who is sick with influenza symptoms should stay home until their symptoms are gone.
· Cover the nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Throw the tissue in the garbage bin after use.
· Wash hands often with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.
· Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
If you or your child develops influenza-like illness, seek the advice of your family doctor as you would with any other illness.
The seasonal influenza vaccine, which protects against the pandemic influenza strain as well as two other influenza strains, is now available free to eligible people. More information about the vaccine is available from the NSW Health Immunisation Unit's vaccination page.
Previous vaccination with the pandemic influenza vaccine, Panvax® is not a barrier to also receiving the seasonal influenza vaccine.
With so many bugs around good luck to you and your children in staying healthy
