FRIDAY NIGHT IS HAIR CHECK NIGHT!

We have recently received a number of reports from parents that their child has had to be treated for head lice. This is not a new problem of course, indeed it is one which is affecting all schools in the Borough and is one which the local Health Authority is trying to address.   However it is one which can, with proper treatment and after-care, be controlled quite easily.

Of course it does not always apply that children have “caught” head lice from someone else at school but as you can imagine when children are working closely together as they would be in school it does not take long for the problem to spread from the infected child to others.

We are asking parents therefore to be very watchful for any signs that their child may have a problem of this kind, to report any outbreak to school and to seek advice and treatment immediately. Treatment is available at your local chemist free of charge (just ask at the counter).

DEANERY CRAFT PROJECT – EVERY TUESDAY 1.00-3.00PM

The Deanery CE High School has officially opened their new building and we are working on a craft project that can be displayed inside. We focus mainly on knitting/crochet/embroidery, but we are open to suggestions!  We can provide materials, but please feel free to bring your own.  You will have the chance to work alongside primary schools.

If you can help please contact spoveyhc@deanery.wigan.sch.uk or ring Mrs Watts on 01942 597514.

I have been involved with this. You are made very welcome and you do not have to commit to each week or for the full two hours.  Please volunteer if you can.
