OASIS PRAYER GROUP

Come and encounter Jesus in a personal way and deepen your relationship with Him who gives Peace and refreshment to the soul. We meet each Thursday during the term at Ss John & Paul Church in the small Chapel. Rosary at 1.00pm. A sharing of last Sunday's Gospel at 1.30pm and finally at 1.40pm we praise and worship Jesus in the Tabernacle. Once a month we do meditations on scripture using Norma Woodcock's CD's and these are based on Ignatian Spirituality. For more information you are all welcome to contact Sandy on 0432 428 919. If you have a person or persons in need of prayer and healing, there is an Intentions Book in the school office and these are lifted up during our prayer meeting. God Bless. Sandy Correia

THE JOHN PAUL PLAYGROUP

If you would like to register your child / children for either of these days, please phone Joanne Godsall on 0418 936 197.

Community Health Nurse

Community Health Nurses visit the school regularly, providing early childhood screening and supporting the school in health related matters. If parents or teachers have health related concerns relating to a student, the student may be referred to the Community Health Nurse during school hours. Contact on 9313 5418, or complete and sign a CHN referral form, available via the school office.

Immunisation - Kindy

To aid in protecting children from communicable disease, it is recommended that Kindy children have had their 4 year old boosters prior to starting school (even if not turned 4 years). These can be given by your family doctor, or at the Central Immunisation Clinic, West Perth (9321 1312, appointment required), or at some local government immunisation clinics. After this immunisation, please ensure a copy of the immunisation record is forwarded to the school office so school health medical records can be updated.

Immunisation - Year 7

The year 7 school immunisation program is suspended this year, and will resume in 2014 for Yr 8, during which all school based vaccinations will be available.

Head Lice

A reminder that occurrences of head lice are common in school children. Weekly checking, and therefore early identification and treatment will help to reduce spread.

An information fact sheet outlining head lice detection, spread and effective treatment strategies can be downloaded at http://www.public.health.wa.gov.au/2/261/2/head_lice_fact_sheet.pm

Alternatively, see your school office.
