Child Requirement

MEAL

The School provides warm and nourishing cooked lunches every afternoon (additional =N= 60,000 per term). Tropical fruits are saved to compliment the child nutritional needs. Each child may bring from home his/her own break time refreshment of juice and biscuits. Etc.

ILLNESS

Your child’s health is of great importance to us at New Hall. Precautions taking include refusing to admit sick or ill children into the School and isolating children who become ill during the School hours. Parents are advised to keep their child away from School when he/she has one of the following symptoms:

–     A fever above 37 degree or more during the previous 24 hours.

–     Symptoms of possible communicable disease including mumps, vomiting, bowl movement that indicates the possibility of infectious diarrhea, sore throat, red eye and constant cough.

–     Rashes that may indicate the possibility of measles or other disease.

–     Blisters indicating the possibility of chicken pox.

–     Restlessness, lethargic behavior, lack of appetite, refusal to participate in usual activities, extreme irritability or clearly unusual behavior for the child that indicate the likeness of an upcoming illness.

–     Your child should not be in School if he or she has been vomiting during the evening of the morning before School.

–     We will also appreciate a letter from parents explaining why a child has been kept from School.

ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY

In the event of minor injury to a child, the School nurse will administer first aid. The parents will be notified by way of an accident report form. In case of a serious injury parents will be notified immediately and steps will be taken to get appropriate medical treatment. Please ensure that all phone numbers on the child’s form are current.
