Coronavirus:

Click here to find a fantastic and free book from Nosy Crow (a British publisher) that you can share with your children on the Coronavirus.  It is well worth a read as it really covers everything a child (and probably any adult) would need to know about this virus. 

The Helping children with the COVID-19 pandemic translated documents are now available here: https://www.education.wa.edu.au/learning-at-home/student-health-and-wellbeing/translations

You can access the English version is this web page (not a downloadable document) here: https://www.education.wa.edu.au/learning-at-home/student-health-and-wellbeing

This information is housed on the Learning at Home section of the Department's public website under Support for Parents and Carers - Health and Wellbeing.
