Merry Land Pre-school’s principal Leanne Naidoo said that the school has not been closed but has been undergoing a sanitisation process. “We can confirm that three learners have Swine Flu. Two are already receiving treatment. On Wednesday, a fourth case came back negative. At the moment the school has not been closed but learners are not attending as we are undergoing a sanitisation process,” said Naidoo.
Pelham Senior Primary School’s Lorrel Wissing confirmed in a circular that there has been one case at the school and urged parents to take the necessary precautions. “There is a positive case that has been identified at the school. We are urging parents not send their children to school should any of the symptoms manifest. Learners have been spoken to in assembly and have been told to ensure that they wash their hands and cover their mouths when coughing and sneezing,” said Wissing.
Headmaster of Merchiston Primary School, Dave Beetar, also confirmed in a circular that a case has been identified at the school and necessary precautions have been taken. “Sadly, a positive case of Swine Flu has been reported by one of the Imps parents. Do not send your son to school if any of the flu-like symptoms occur,” said Beetar.
Other primary schools that include Orient Heights Primary, Regina Primary, Allandale Primary, Northlands Primary and Cordwalles Preparatory have confirmed that there are no cases at their schools and they are taking the necessary precautions.
