DPS NEWS

ATHLETICS
There has been a change of venue for DPS Athletics tomorrow it will now be at the High School. All children aged 8 as at 1st January 2003 will be competing at the High School. We will be leaving at 9am to walk to DHS and all children are to bring plenty of drink, food and a sunhat.

LIBRARY
All library books must be returned by Wednesday next week for the annual stocktake.

SUN HATS
All children must wear sun hats. Those who do not have a sun hat will be restricted to playing under one of the shade areas. This will apply to all children. Caps and full brimmed hats will be acceptable, beanies are not acceptable.

HEAD LICE
Many head lice infections cause no symptoms, probably less than half cause itching. 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.

APRIL 2004 ELECTIONS

The role of school trustees is to ensure that students get the best education possible. They have an important role in overseeing how our school is run.
