Parents and students please be aware that there is currently an outbreak of Whooping Cough (Pertussis) on the North Coast and we have recently had a student in the school diagnosed with this disease. Early diagnosis can noticeably shorten the length and severity of a bout. Once diagnosed a student should be excluded from school until completing 5 days of antibiotic treatment. For more information please go to the NSW Public Health website.
