Kanwal is now trialing their very own app for the next 12 months. Please go to your "App store" on your phone and download 'Primary Parent Planner'. This app will cost you $1.99 and will enable you to see events on the school calendar, have newsletters at your finger tips and we are in the process of uploading as many notes as we possibly can.
Once you have downloaded your app, you will need to select Kanwal Public School. There will then be an option to add your child/ren and select the various groups and classes they are in or become involved in. Please note that not all groups and or classes are currently up. They will be updated as events, notes or issues arise.
Head lice infestations are almost synonymous with the school experience. If you are very lucky, your children will pass through their school years without ever having experienced the irritation and inconvenience of head lice infestations. But for many families head lice means not only inconvenience and irritation but also the expense of effective treatment.
We can all do something to decrease the possibility of infestation in our own families and, in doing so, reduce the risk of infestation across the school.
For your convenience I have provided three links below that provide excellent tips on prevention and treatment of head lice. The first of these, produced by NSW Health, provides excellent advice including the comb and conditioner method that many school communities have used in a coordinated effort to reduce the incidence of head lice.
It also provides great advice on how to go about nit-busting at home and also provides several very helpful links.
I encourage you all to check your children’s hair every day, to watch for any signs of irritation (e.g. scratching the scalp) and to follow recommended treatments thoroughly. You could also have a look on YouTube for some very well presented information that will help children to understand how head lice survive on human heads. Please remember that clean hair does not mean head lice free hair.
