Infectious Diseases Update

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I wish to bring to your attention the importance of ensuring that students who are suffering from an infectious disease are kept at home until their symptoms have resolved. We have a number of students at the College with specific health concerns who may be directly affected should they come into contact with another student who is unwell with chickenpox or scabies.

Alerting the College should your son have contracted a disease such as chicken pox or scabies is critical for the health and well-being of the community as a whole.

Thanks for your support in this health matter.
