New Strain of Norovirus!

A message from the Department of Education and Training:

The Department of Health and Human Services has identified a new strain of norovirus which may lead to gastroenteritis outbreaks.

Norovirus infection is characterised by nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. Other symptoms may include fever, headaches and muscle aches. Symptoms usually resolve after 48 hours, however, if a parent is concerned about their child’s symptoms they should seek medical attention.

Norovirus is the most common cause of viral gastroenteritis. It affects people of all ages however certain groups are at higher risk, particularly those in aged care facilities or early childhood education and care services. Norovirus is known to cause at least 65 per cent of gastroenteritis outbreaks affecting settings like these in Victoria.

To help prevent the spread of norovirus, everyone, including children, their families, staff and people in the community, should:

  • thoroughly wash their hands with soap and running water after going to the toilet and before eating or preparing food
  • avoid preparing food for others until 48 hours after gastroenteritis symptoms have completely resolved
  • stay away from early childhood education and care services until they have been free of the symptoms of gastroenteritis for 48 hours.

Please do not send your children to school if they have been vomitting.

Child Safe Standards

Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School is committed to ensuring that all children are safe and protected from any form of child abuse.
This year, the Victorian Government introduced the Child Safe Standards, which are compulsory minimum standards for all Victorian schools, to ensure they are well prepared to protect children from abuse and neglect.

To create and maintain a child safe organisation, we have developed:

  1. strategies to embed an organisational culture of child safety, including through effective leadership arrangements
  2. a child safe policy and statement of commitment to child safety
  3. a code of conduct that establishes clear expectations for appropriate behaviour with children
  4. screening, supervision, training and other human resources practices that reduce the risk of child abuse by new and existing personnel
  5. processes for responding to and reporting suspected child abuse
  6. strategies to identify and reduce or remove risks of child abuse
  7. strategies to promote the participation and empowerment of children.

Policies related to the Child Safe Standards may be found on the parents page of the website, under Policies/Information: http://www.cranbournecarlisleps.vic.edu.au/?page_id=73
