There is a change in practice to the school year group in which Colour Blindness brochures will be distributed (changing from year 6 to PP).
Colour blindness means that a person cannot distinguish some colours or see the colours differently to other people. Very few people who are colour blind are ‘blind’ to all colours. Commonly, the colours seen differently are greens, yellows, oranges and reds.
An information leaflet on colour blindness will be distributed to all year Pre-Primary students this term.
Please take the time to read the pamphlet in the parent resources section
Parents of children of all other year groups please also carefully read the attached pamphlet in this newsletter.
If you have any concerns, colour vision testing can be performed by some general practitioners, eye specialists or optometrists. You can also contact your local Community Health Nurse, Susan Murphy through the school office.
