Many schools have, at some point, requested
assistance from either the Dept. of Education or City Health, to no avail.
For a minimal monthly fee, or as a once-off
service, The Nit-pickers assist schools with a detection and intervention
service. Our partnerships with schools involves a monthly inspection of all
students (pre-primary, primary and secondary school). Following detection a
consultation service is arranged with parents including advice on treatment and
preventative maintenance, from the child, to the home.
It is possible for schools and parents to
control the situation, as with academics, working together for the mental,
emotional and physical wellbeing of South Africa’s children.
