Keeping hydrated

As summer and warmer weather approaches, please can parents / carers stress the importance of keeping hydrated to their child / children. Dehydration can cause headaches, which in turn makes it harder to concentrate and learn. We therefore advise students to bring a bottle of water to school with them.    

Water is available in school from the drinking fountains located in the canteen, the Year 7 & 8 toilets and the Year 9, 10 & 11 toilets. The canteen also sells a variety of drinks during break & lunch.

Thank you

Mrs J. McGee (School Matron)
