We have a student attending Waiau Pa School - in New Entrants - that has a severe food allergy to peanuts. It is extremely important that there is strict avoidance of this food in order to prevent a life-threatening allergic reaction.

We are therefore asking for your help to provide the student with a safe school environment.

Any exposure to peanuts may cause a life-threatening allergic reaction that requires emergency medical treatment. To reduce the chance of this occurring, we are asking that you do not send peanuts or anything containing peanuts to school with your child. Both Waiau Pa School and the child’s family appreciate your assistance and thank you for your support.

If you have any questions in regards to this request please see Leon Van’t Veen - Gibbon, or email me at
