The school is trying to manage the spread of the highly contagious infection with unvaccinated students told to stay home for the rest of the term.

There has also been a further case at a primary school at Pottsville south of the border this week.

All up across the Gold Coast there have been 115 confirmed cases so far this year, which is actually down on the estimate of 150.
