February 15th Update

science fair


February 28th 2013

By now many of our students are actively engaged in their scientific studies as they prepare for the science fair on Thursday 28th 2013. We are hoping that many of our parents will visit our Science Fair and talk with our students about their work. Parents are invited to come and look at the exhibits on Thursday afternoon from 1:15 pm to 2:45 pm. We look forward to seeing you there. Please mark your calendars.

LICE – the Inconvenient TruthLouse

The truth is that head lice seem to occur in all schools at some time or another. At any one time many schools will have one or more classes where one or more students have head lice. The other truth is that there is no VSB policy that requires children to stay at home who have lice. This is probably because lice are so common among school children, and apart from being very annoying, they do not carry disease or cause problems other than itching.

This does not minimise how very annoying these parasites are to parents. Our policy is to keep parents informed and to encourage all parents of students with lice to take actions which will get rid of them in the child’s hair and throughout the home. It is small comfort to know that lice apparently prefer clean hair so that their presence is not indicative of poor hygiene. You can follow this link for some detailed information about how to deal with lice.  Head Lice Information
