From Cath the nurse

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all settling well into Term 1 the term of summer and beginnings. It’s been a lovely one so far, and such a pleasure to meet all our new preppies,and see how much all our existing students have grown over the summer.

This newsletter I bring you some information specifically on the thunderstorm asthma that occurred last year- information sessions to assist you.

Thunderstorm asthma: Community information sessions

 

The Department of Health and Human Services is running community information sessions to give Victorians an opportunity to hear directly from experts about what thunderstorm asthma is and what steps you can take to help you and your family for the next pollen season.

Information will also be provided about the emotional reactions experienced by people during and after emergencies and where additional help is available. Time has been allotted for public questions.

This looks like valuable information that is timely and welcome.

Today is my last newsletter I am leaving to pursue other nursing opportunities. As one lovely student tells me “I am spreading my wings” a lovely way to look at life. It has always been a pleasure to know and assist our students, parents and staff here at Wales street, meeting so many funny, interesting, intelligent children, as I do day to day; it’s a fabulous position to be in.  I have been very lucky indeed to have had the opportunity to do so. I wish you all well and leave knowing I take lots of wonderful memories with me.

I wish all the best to you – take care.
