Kip McGrath Tuition – Enrol Now for their Summer School! The unique Kip McGrath professional tutoring experience is available in Templeogue, South Dublin, offering tuition from age 6 to 16 in English & Maths. The Summer School which runs through June, July & late August. Each session is 80 minutes long and run at a variety of times after lunch during each week. Summer tuition is an ideal time to concentrate on ‘boosting’ your child’s achievements before the next academic year, to focus on study skills, prepare for an examination year, the move from Primary School to Secondary School etc. The August classes are an ideal time to ‘brush up’ after the long summer break and before the next academic year starts. As each child has an individualised study programme, it means they can focus on specific needs – whether it is dyslexia or dyscalculia for example, or not getting sufficient challenge in the classroom. The centres are owned and operated by fully trained teachers who have also been trained in the Kip Mc Grath tutoring system.

and distressing time for parents Happily, symptoms tend to be mild in young children and chickenpox usually runs its course without serious consequences. In most cases, the biggest problem is likely to be stopping little hands from scratching as this can cause infection and even scarring. Before developing the distinctive rash, your child might have some flu-like symptoms, including: feeling sick, raised temperature/fever, loss of appetite, and generally feeling unwell. After a couple of days, a red rash appears which starts as small, itchy red spots and then fluid-filled blisters which eventually scab over. The rash can occur anywhere on their body and face and even the soles of their feet. If you are at all worried, call your GP. Chickenpox is a virus so there is no cure for it and your child’s immune system should deal with the virus over a few days.

Virasoothe Chickenpox Relief Cooling Gel is a revolutionary product specifically formulated and clinically proven to relieve the irritating symptoms of chickenpox. Available in gel and Spray gel, it is suitable for children over six months of age and can be applied to both body and face. It provides rapid cooling and soothing relief and helps break the itch, scratch, infection cycle. Keep your child as cool as possible. Dress your child in light, loose clothing and keep bedding to a minimum. Keep your child’s fingernails clean and short to prevent deep scratching and make sure your child drinks plenty of water to prevent dehydration.

If your child has chickenpox, they will be infectious from before the first spots appear until the last blister has scabbed over. To prevent further spread, children with chickenpox should be kept off school, crèche or playgroup and kept from newborn babies, pregnant women and people with a weakened immune system. For children over 4, sugar free ice-lollies can help to lower temperature and provide fluids, as well as soothing a sore mouth if it has become infected. Avoid foods that may make the mouth sore (such as salty foods) and try having soups as they are easy to

swallow. ViraSoothe is only available in pharmacy. 28 Primary Times SUMMER ISSUE launches new
