Head Hunters Program
Head lice (louse) is an ongoing problem for most schools and BNPS is no exception. We have however managed to reduce the outbreak of head lice to 3 – 4% of the school population by checking every child in the school (once per term) through our head lice detection program, Head Hunters. This parent initiated program (approved by School Council) has been operating since 2002 and is run entirely by members of our parent community who are trained to check for head lice. Regular checks for head lice can reduce the severity of an individual infestation, make treatment easier and stop the cycle. Every family that has experienced an outbreak of louse will truly appreciate the benefits of this program!
