Good afternoon. Almost 25% of our school children are away today ill. Please be aware there are an awful lot of stomach bugs and colds/coughs like illness at school currently. Many children have been sick in class or in the sickbay. If your child has been sent home in the last 24 hours I ask you to please keep them home until Monday, as the bugs appear extremely contagious. The symptoms include a fever, nausea and then vomiting. We appreciate your cooperation on this matter. Regards - Principal on behalf of the School Community.
