Student Health Service 2018-19

Dear Parents,

The Department of Health has invited our secondary students to join the SHS. This service is provided free to check the general physical condition and give health advices. The participated students will receive appointment slips and go to the SHS Centre on the appointment dates by themselves ( usually next year around June or July).

The Form Tutors will pass on onto you the “application forms” with pamphlets.

The teachers will collect up all signed and completed application forms and give to the nurse before 11 September 2018.

Please note late application will NOT be processed.

Thanks a lot,
nora

Chicken Pox

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

A student was confirmed on Monday to have contracted chicken pox. Your vigilance against this contagious disease is required. Please observe for signs and symptoms as mentioned below.

Children suffering from chickenpox may have low grade fever, and develop skin rash on their scalp and body, which spreads to the face, arms and legs. The rashes occur mainly on the trunk and the vesicles are usually itchy. The vesicles dry up and form a scab in about 3 days and the patient usually recovers in about 2-4 weeks.

To prevent an outbreak of the disease in school, please observe any appearance of rash and check your children’s temperature before they come to school. Please keep children at home for rest and seek medical advice promptly if they develop fever or rash. The sick children with chicken pox should not go to school for around 1 week or until the skin lesions have crusted.
A doctor’s certificate to approve the return to school is required.
