It’s that time of the year again when the mozzie population increases and we see more ticks in the environment. This is a feature right across our Shire, not just at school. Whilst we take what action we can at school to minimise the risk, you can also support your child by sending along an insect repellent which you are happy for your child to use. Whilst we do have some repellant at school, we are aware that parents have different preferences for choice of product – for this reason, we ask you to send along a repellant of your choice if you would like your child to have some extra protection at school.
