Head Lice Notice

on Monday, 20 March 2017.

Dear Parents/Guardians/Carers,

It has come to our attention that some students in the school may have head lice and we seek your cooperation in checking your child's hair this week.

Head lice do not transmit infectious diseases – they are transmitted by having head to head contact with someone who has head lice. Head lice are common in school-aged children and are the most adaptable of creatures. They have survived living solely on humans for 10,000 years!!!!

What can you do?
We seek your cooperation in checking your child's hair and in those instances where head lice or eggs are found, treating your child's hair.

If head lice or eggs are found on your child's hair you need to inform:
• the school and advise when the treatment has started
• parents or carers of your child's friends so they too have the opportunity to detect and treat their children if necessary.

When can my child return to school?
Health regulations requires that where a child has head lice, that child should not return to school until the day after appropriate treatment has started. Please note, this refers only to those children who have live head lice and does not refer to head lice eggs.

WSC is aware that head lice can be a sensitive issue and is committed to maintaining your confidentiality.

Should you require further information please view the following link http://health.vic.gov.au/headlice/

VIEWPOINT : The Future of Jobs by My Careers Match

on Wednesday, 22 March 2017.

There is concern among students and parents that job losses through robotics, artificial intelligence and technology is creating uncertainty about future employment.

There's no question that technology will impact on future jobs and employment. Some jobs will disappear and new ones will be created. In fact there is evidence to suggest that there will be a net gain of jobs with 82% of companies saying they are likely to hire more people in the future. We can substantiate this by the fact that the top three countries with the highest number of robots and automation - Japan, South Korea and Germany - have the lowest unemployment.
The technology revolution is here!

While most jobs will be impacted by technology it doesn't mean they will disappear. They won't go ... they'll change. The choice is not Man or Machine but rather Man plus Machine. New technologies will make us smarter, more productive and faster at achieving outcomes. We are in a 'technology revolution'.
