DPS NEWS

DPS JMB NETBALL
Thank you to all children who have returned their netball forms. The teams are now full however if you have missed out and would like to play you can phone St Josephs Convent School or Arapohue School as they sometimes need extra to fill the teams.

DENTAL CLINIC
It is really important that children develop the habit of eating something for breakfast time. So you need to give your children something which not only tastes good, but is good for them and which they’ll eat with as little fuss as possible.
E.G. FRUIT SMOOTHIE
Blend together some milk and fruit, you might want to add yoghurt to make it a bit thicker. Any sort of fruit is fine. For 1 serving allow 1 cup of milk as below.
FRESH FRUIT 1/3 -1/2 banana, 4-5 berries eg Strawberries, blueberries, ½ Tamarillo or Kiwifruit, ½-1 stone fruit eg peach, pear, apricot


SCHOOL FEES
Just a reminder that school fees are due at $35 for the year. These are tax deductible.

SCHOOL SORES
These are highly contagious and there are a growing number of children with these at the moment. What do they look like? They look like an ordinary sore with a crusty ring around their edge and they get larger instead if healing. What to do? You need to see the doctor to get an antibiotic medicine to kill the disease. Sores should be kept covered and your child should be kept at home for a few days until the sores start to heal.

YUGIYOGI CARDS
Many children are bringing these cards to school which is causing unruly behaviour and as from today they are banned from the school, this includes any photocopies of cards. Any children caught with cards will have them confiscated immediately.

HEAD LICE
Many head lice infections cause no symptoms, probably less than half cause itch. So it’s important for you to examine your child’s hair. The easiest way to do this is to apply conditioner to wet hair and comb with a fine tooth lice comb then wipe the conditioner from the comb onto a tissue and look for lice or eggs, they stand out quite clearly this way. Should you find lice or eggs, your child should be treated. This is also an ideal way to check your own hair as you can do it yourself. If you find head lice DON”T PANIC, most families get head lice at some stage of their children’s school life. It’s no big deal. The school and pharmacy stock products recommended for the treatment of head lice.
What about bedding? Much confusion surrounds this issue! As lice cannot live off scalp for more than 24 hours, carers should not go to great lengths to treat bedding or the environment. So drastic is the dehydration of a louse that after 12 hours away from the scalp it cannot resume feeding. Simply denying lice the food they require (human blood) is sufficient to kill lice.
