We are noticing that we are sending a lot of children home with a tummy bug. Advice from the Ministry of Health on ​​vomiting and diarrhoea bugs is: Don’t go to school, early childhood centre or work until well and for 48 hours after the last episode of diarrhoea or vomiting.

To help contain the spread please don’t send your child to school for 48 hours after last episode of diarrhoea or vomiting.

Congratulations to Josiah Toka who has been selected to play for the Auckland Cook Island National Touch team. This is a great accomplishment and we look forward to seeing his future successes on the sports field.
