One last reminder that our staff have a Rotorua Central Kahui Ako Teacher Only Day on Monday 31st May. There is no school for our tamariki on that day. All of our staff members will be off site taking part in professional development.

Healthy School Lunches are provided for our tamariki everyday by Kapai Kai. There has been some publicity recently in the media regarding the Healthy School Lunch programme. We are extremely fortunate to be part of this programme. The quality of the lunches which we receive is very high and we work hard with our suppliers to ensure that the lunch programme runs smoothly.

We are also fortunate to offer Breakfast in Schools every morning. Any students who need to have breakfast are able to come to the staffroom at 8.30am to have weetbix and a drink of milk.

Head Lice

Headlice is a common yet unfortunate ailment for children; however left untreated it can cause huge concerns for the child, parents, class and the school.

Glenholme School would appreciate if all parents/caregivers would check your child’s hair and if necessary take appropriate steps to treat any headlice.

If your child has headlice please do not send them back to school until they have been treated.

Untreated children may be referred to the Public Health Nurse to avoid continual

re-infestation of class members.

Please report any new cases to the teacher, as we will endeavor to notify parents.

Very effective treatments are readily available from chemists however a combing method is an alternative to the often costly products available.

Please be vigilant and remember we need parents to be pro-active for at least two weeks to break the headlice life cycle.
