A fortnight ago one of our Banksia families ended up in ED with their child having a seizure because their fever was so high. This student is unable to have medications such as Panadol and ibuprofen. The culprit each illness (they've had 3 in the last 5 weeks) is a viral infection. Whilst we understand that children will catch viral infections, please minimise this risk by keeping sick children home. If your child is unwell, they need rest and recuperation at home. Please help stop the spread of germs and keep our students well.
