I'm sure most of the world has, by now, heard that Melbourne is the Swine Flu captial of the Global Community at large. I'm here to tell you Swine Flu has nothing on a classroom full of Preppy's!
Prep is our first year of school here in Victoria. The children are generally 5yo and turn 6 sometime during the year. So far this week (and I've only had 3 days in there) I feel like I've been inundated with puke, snot and poo. Ok, so inundated is perhaps a little extreme. But you know, one of each in three days is pretty big when you've gotten used to kids who can get themselves to the loo in time and blow their own noses without being reminded to do so!
I'd quite forgotten how gross little kids can really be once you get past the cute little exterior!
I'm not a proponent of hand sanitisers and antibacterial room sprays usually. However, I'm starting to think that a big can of Glen 20 sprayed through the room at recess, lunch and the end of the day might not be so bad. And maybe hand sanitisers do have a place in the world after all.
