Whooping Cough (Pertussis)

Dear Parent/Caregiver

It has come to our attention that there has been a confirmed case of Whooping Cough (Pertussis) within our school community.

After advice from the Department of Education Work Health and Safety Team and the Local Public Health Unit, we have attached to the back of this letter information from both the Department and the Ministry of Health.  

As a preventative measure, The Public Health Unit has advised that any student, staff member or parent helpers, who are unwell and presenting with a cough, should see a doctor and provide a medical certificate for any time absent from school together with a medical clearance certificate to return to school.
