Mosquitos

Due to the extended dry period with a much shorter wet period Mosquitos this year have been forced to condense their breeding season into a much smaller period.

Thus there will be many more of them working at a more furious pace to provide for their young ones.

We do all we can to limit breeding sites on our school site, but the larger environment provides ideal mosquito breeding habitat as it does along much of the east coast.
So it is advisable to take your own precautions by providing your child with suitable clothing & mosquito repellent of your choice to apply to your children.
