We would just like to pass on to you the current advice that we have received from the Department of Education regarding Covid-19 Virus.
It is important to emphasise to the children the importance of washing their hands properly (rubbing well with soap and water or sanitiser for a minimum of 20 seconds which is 2 verses of “Happy Birthday”) and disinfecting used surfaces.
Parents of children in the Junior School are advised to supply your child with tissues when coming to school.
Parents of children in the Senior School are advised to supply your child with hand sanitiser and tissues when coming to school.
It is important to dispose of used tissues properly.
The most important action we can take to protect ourselves from Covid-19 is regular hand-washing and good respiratory hygiene.
Please see attached posters.
