We have had an outbreak of a gastrointestinal disease of some sort. As yet we have not been advised exactly what type of virus this is. To date it has affected approximately 15 boarders and a similar number of day boys. Whilst proportionally this is not dramatic, the district health officer is concerned about the highly infectious nature of this disease and is anxious to limit its spread.
