Foot & Mouth Disease

There have been several cases of Foot and Mouth Disease in the school. Please see the summary below.

Summary of Symptoms

Hand, foot and mouth disease is a viral illness common in children. Symptoms are usually mild, but can include high temperature and small blister-like lesions on the inside of the mouth, palms of hands, soles of feet, and the nappy area. The infection is spread by direct contact with fluid from skin blisters, nose and throat discharges, droplets, and faeces. Good hygiene is important in preventing spread of the disease.
