As a school, we are closely monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) and we will be reminding the children about the current public health advice, i.e. if they have to cough or sneeze, to use a tissue to cover their mouth and nose, throw it away carefully after use, and wash their hands and that washing their hands regularly will help prevent flu and other viruses spreading. Mrs Howe, our parent officer, visited classes recently to show the children how to wash their hands well so they should all be experts! Please visit the dedicated Public Health Agency page on COVID-19 if you want to read the most current information and advice (https://www.publichealth.hscni.net/news/covid-19-coronavirus
). There have been no positive tests for COVD-19 in Northern Ireland so far.
