Looks like I picked the wrong week to send the kid to camp (I didn’t).

A highly contagious stomach bug is suspected to have hit about 40 primary school pupils after a Year 4 camp at the weekend.

In an email to parents yesterday, Grovely’s St William’s School principal Anthony Lucey said one family had a confirmed diagnosis of norovirus.

Brisbane Catholic Education communications manager John Phelan said about 40 children had been affected since symptoms were first reported last weekend after children returned from Camp Warrawee at Joyner.

“Once students began reporting as ill, we immediately contacted both the camp and Queensland Heath,” Mr Phelan said.
