St Oink College of Cairns

After seven schools have been closed in Victoria due to the swine flu outbreak, the ABC report that St Monica's College in Cairns will be closed on Monday after a 13-year-old girl tested positive to the virus.
  • Queensland Health Minister Paul Lucas says a 13-year-old girl from St Monica's College tested positive to the virus overnight, bringing the total number of cases in Queensland to 15.

    There are more than 200 cases throughout Australia, mostly in Victoria.
    He says the school will be closed for seven days.
    "Public health officers will begin contacting people who have been in close contact with that student," he said.

    "I understand the student was a student at St Monica's college in Cairns and it will therefore be necessary for students at that school to be away from school for a period of seven days."

However, the Cairns Post is behind with the news today....

When I was a boy the best looking Catholic girls usually had swine flu. No-one seemed to care, either... those were the days.
