Chicken Pox



A Message from Dr. Patrick O’Connor – Chief Medical Officer of Health, Whanganui Hospital


Dear Parents


A student in Year 10 at Cullinane College has a confirmed case of chicken pox.  This infection can be particularly serious for those with lower immunity.  If there are further cases at school we can expect them to appear during the last week of the school term.  The illness starts with a low-grade fever and a rash soon appears with small blister-like lumps which crust over after about five days.  The person is considered infectious until the lesions are fully crusted.


If a student develops such a rash then please inform the school, and make sure the student stays home until the lesions are fully crusted.
