School Sores – Junior School

A child in the Junior School has been diagnosed with Impetigo (school sores).

The following information is available on the Queensland Health website.

Impetigo (school sores) is a highly contagious skin infection caused by two different bacteria, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus. It is generally harmless, but can be serious for young babies. The infection is characterised by inflamed blisters that pop, weep and form crusts. Treatment options include antibiotic creams and tablets.

Children are not to attend school until appropriate antibiotic treatment has commenced (sores on exposed areas must be covered with a watertight dressing).

Parents are advised to contact their doctor with regards to when their child may return to school.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.


Head Lice Alert – Junior School

We have had reports of head lice in Year 3.

Head lice are difficult to eradicate and will infest a person regardless of cleanliness.   The only way to eradicate them is by using a treatment supplied by a chemist.  Washing will not remove head lice or eliminate them.

Please check your child’s hair tonight and treat the hair if necessary.   If your child is found to have lice you will be contacted to come and collect your child.

Advice on the treatment of head lice may be accessed at:

The school has purchased a video called “Breaking the Head Lice Cycle”.  Parents may borrow this video through the school library.


Thank you for your cooperation.

Road Safety Reminder

Dear Parents,

It has recently been reported that some parents are turning into Sovereign Waters and then doing a U turn to access Anson Road.  We have also had complaints of abusive behaviour by a Redlands College parent while doing this, towards residents.  The vehicle registration of the particular car involved, has been reported by a resident of Allan Day Drive.

For better road safety and neighbourliness, we ask that this practice not continue, and thank you for your assistance in this matter.
