The Woodfield Avenue Walking Bus is looking for new members to join. The Walking Bus is a safe, convenient and fun way to travel to school every morning. Meet at the bus stop at the top of Woodfield Avenue at 8.25am with a view to leave at 8.30am. We make a stop at the bottom of Bonaly Road to pick up again and leave at 8.40am. Parents of children on the walking bus must volunteer to walk at least one morning a week. For more information contact email@example.com.
I am delighted to share the work of some of our P7s who have shown some terrific desktop publishing skills in producing “The Bonaly Blether” which has a sample of some of the learning from different classes across the school from this term.
Please see below that all schools have received today from NHS.
By following this advice we can minimise the likelihood of an outbreak at Bonaly.
UPDATE ON DIARRHOEA AND VOMITING IN SCHOOLS
A number of schools across Lothian have reported an increase in pupils with vomiting and/or diarrhoea. The symptoms are suggestive of viral gastroenteritis (also known as norovirus or winter vomiting disease) which is known to be currently circulating in the community. It is usually a short lived self-limiting illness from which children and adults recover quickly.
Further information about norovirus and its prevention can be found at https://www.nhsinform.scot/illnesses-and-conditions/infections-and-poisoning/norovirus
Therefore to minimise the likelihood of developing norovirus
- If your child develops vomiting and/or diarrhoea please ensure they remain off school until they have been symptom free for at least 48 hours. This advice applies at all times. So for instance if your child becomes unwell over the weekend they should not attend school on Monday even if by then they feel well.
- Ensure that all members of your family wash their hands frequently using warm water and liquid soap, especially after using the toilet and before eating or preparing food.
