One of our students has been diagnosed with this virus.  Here are the details for your information.

Coxssackievirses are part of the enterovirus family of viruses (which also includes polioviruses and hepatitis A virus) that live in the human digestive tract. They can spread from person to person, usually on unwashed hands and surfaces contaminated by feces, where they can live for several days.
In most cases, coxsackieviruses cause mild flu-like symptoms and go away without treatment. But in some cases, they can lead to more serious infections.

Signs and SymptomsCoxsackievirus can produce a wide variety of symptoms. About half of all kids infected with coxsackievirus have no symptoms. Others suddenly develop high fever, headache, and muscle aches, and some also develop a sore throat, abdominal discomfort, or nausea. A child with a coxsackievirus infection may simply feel hot but have no other symptoms. In most kids, the fever lasts about 3 days, then disappears.
There is a free Heart Foundation workshop at Northwood Kindergarten next Thursday, 4 August, from 5.30pm - 8.00pm.  It is aimed towards healthy eating and active movement for children.  Everyone is welcome to attend this.

Would your child like to learn Piano or Keyboard?  Chrissy has a 4 week Introduction course available with 1 on 1 tuition.  Phone 377-4901 if you are interested.
