Bug Busting

 

Monday 24th March is our whole school Bug Busting day to try and work together to reduce the outbreaks of headlice.  Headlice is a common problem in primary schools, and we'll never crack it completely, but we can reduce it.

5 good reasons to support us and Bug Bust at home:

 

  • headlice can cause distracting itching 
  • headlice easily move between people through head-to-head contact, meaning they can be quite tricky to eradicate
  • children can feel uncomfortable at school when they have headlice
  • no medicated shampoos are 100% effective but regular bug busting has proven to be 4x better
  • some people only have 1 or 2 lice and no itching - bug busting means they will be found and busted!
