Last updated 8:00 PM on 21 March 2013

Attention: Parents and Carers

Please be aware that a student in our school is currently receiving treatment which results in a lowered immune system (chemotherapy - for cancer), which means the student is more prone to getting ill from infections.

As cancer is not a contagious disease, it is important that he/she can actively participate in the day-to-day school program without any major limitations.

A major concern, however, is that if this student develops chickenpox, measles or influenza, he/she can become seriously ill.

We seek your cooperation in preventing this situation.

If your child has or may have chickenpox, measles or influenza, please:

1. Do not send him/her to school.

2. Notify the school as soon as possible.
