Good morning, Tuart Hill Community.

We have a case of Ringworm reported in the Kindy- Pre-Primary section of the school today.

Please check your child’s skin tonight and commence antifungal treatment if required.

Under the School Education Act 1999, if your child has ringworm, the Principal may ask you keep your child away from school until treatment has started. Your child may return to school the day after antifungal cream treatment has commenced.

More information can be found in the attached Factsheet and on the Health Direct WA Goverment Website Tinea | healthdirect.


Thanks in advance,

Beverly Innes
