Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
Well here we are in week nine and what a busy term it has been so far and promises to continue to be.
The weather has been very atypical of what we expect in Dunedin in winter but this has reflected on our roll being less affected by illness.
I would like to draw it to everybody's attention that there have been several health scares in the North
Island through Measles out breaks. The time that illnesses that are prevalent in the North Island are most likely to reach the South are the periods of time straight after a school holidays. So please take every
sensible precaution to ensure that your children obey the health departments hygiene advice (wash your hands regularly for a minimum of 20 seconds with hot water and soap and dry for 20 seconds).
Where possible avoid ill children and most importantly if your child is exposed to a serious illness like the measles you keep them isolated and inform the school as soon as possible.
Later this week we will be circulating a consultation document on our schools vision. Please read it and send in your feedback. Remember our vision is where we see our pupils going in the future.
Have a great week
