There has been an outbreak of headlice in the Juniors so please check your child’s hair regularly and treat where necessary (as well as other members of the household).  Useful tips are to use Teatree shampoo and conditioner as a preventative measure.  If you child does have headlice then once you have applied the treatment, thoroughly comb through to remove any eggs (the nitty gritty nit comb is the best for this) then drying your child’s hair with a hairdryer also helps.
