They have been noti- fied about the highly infectious disease by principal Ian Travers and have been told to seek advice from their doctor if their child or others in the family develop any signs of the disease which include persistent fits of coughing. Whooping cough is caused by bacteria spread by coughing and sneezing, in the same way as colds and flu, and can affect people of all ages. Young children, especially babies under six months, can be extremely ill and the ill- ness can sometimes be fatal in this age group. Whooping cough takes one to two weeks to develop and starts with a runny nose and dry cough. The coughing in- creases in frequency and duration over the next few weeks developing into prolonged coughing bouts. The whooping sound occurs as the person draws a breath in after a long coughing attack although not everyone develops this symptom. Some may go red in the face and vomit after coughing bouts. Treatment involves a 14-day course of the anti- biotic erythromycin. If there is a baby or person with chronic ill- ness in the family a doc- tor may also advise a seven-day course of the antibiotic for everyone in the family to prevent the vulnerable person from being infected by other family members. Anyone with whooping cough should stay away from work, school or community gatherings until three weeks have passed since the start of the bad coughing attacks or until they have taken five days of a 14-day course of antibiotics, whichever occurs first. After this time they may still continue to cough, but will no longer be infectious to others. Immunisation against the disease is available and is usually given in the first few months of life. It does not however provide life-long immun- ity and a booster is advised at the age of 11. Charlotte's show a winner By GILL ALCOCK Krabby patty anyone?

As the catastrophe in Christchurch unfolded, a fundraising day went ahead to enable a little girl get closer to gaining mobility. The Baby Charlotte Car Show at the North Shore Events Centre on February 26 provided the chance to contribute towards a set of pros- thetic legs for seven- year-old Waiheke Pri- mary School student Charlotte Cleverley- Bisman. The event had been billed as an exhibition of classic cars, V8s and emergency vehicles but due to the Canterbury crisis many of the emerg- ency services staff had to be dispatched to assist their colleagues down South. Organisers acknow- ledged the earthquake with a minute s silence and prayers at the open- ing of the event. Co-organiser Lindy Lawn says: Under- standably a lot of emerg- ency services people went to Christchurch -- police, medical and fire -- so we ended up dramati- cally changing the line- up, but it was still a great success. There were still many other attractions includ- ing Dora the Explorer, Boots, Winnie the Pooh, along with Tiger, Eyore, plus Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Don t forget the amazing cars -- the sound of V8s rumbling around. The cars were beyond belief. Charlotte spent the day zooming around in her own miniature motorised Shelby that was loaned to her for the day, Ms Lawn says. Also on site were raffles, magicians, bal- loon sculptures, a bouncy castle, food stalls and educational stalls such as Auckland University immunisation aware- ness. The event raised $7,600 just on the gate with more donated from the stalls directly into Charlotte s Trust. The money will go towards the cost of pros- thetic legs for Charlotte who became a quadruple amputee after contrac- ting meningococcal men- ingitis when she was just a few months old. Charlotte is soon to undergo surgery on her legs before the process of fitting prosthetic legs can go ahead. MUMPS WATCH A case of mumps has been confirmed this week with the infected child attending Waiheke Community Childcare on two occasions when it would have been infec- tious. Parents of children who attend the centre are being advised their child may have been infected if they were attending on March 21 and or March 25 and have not been vac- cinated with the MMR vaccine. Senior teacher Ute Hoffmann says the incu- bation period for mumps is up to three weeks, which means if there are no other cases confirmed by April 16 the centre is clear. Ms Hoffman says the mother of the affected child told the centre her child was ''not too bad'' and was only poorly for one day, and that a dis- trict health board doctor had assured her that mumps is not very con- tagious. Parents are asked to monitor children closely just in case.
