Asthma: Week 35 25 – 31 August – A Guide for Patients/Carers

Rise in Asthma Attacks

Did you know there is a rise in Asthma Attacks in August when pupils go back to school after their summer holidays?

Each year we see an increase in asthma attacks in children when they return to school which often result in admission to hospital. 

Check out our top tips to try and avoid this happening.

Remember, asthma attacks are serious and you need to get help day or night if your child is not responding to their blue inhaler.

Miles against Malaria

A huge thank you to Mr Chiole for informing us about the deadly disease Malaria. We learnt all about mosquitoes and how their bite can kill! We even got to see the nets that can help save lives. The Rights Respecting group are donating some of our charity money to this great cause.

As a RightsRespecting School we know it is our Right to be protected from harm!
