Good dental hygiene is vital for optimal health and development of our children. As part of our efforts to improve dental health across our diverse school community, all students in Term 3 will be provided with a free dental screen by an oral health therapist. To compliment this, we would like to provide all children with a take-home show-bag including items such as: toothbrush, toothpaste, water bottle and information on why and how children, and families, need to look after their teeth.
