We were fortunate to have Stevie Strutton (Paediatric Respiratory Clinical Nurse Specialist) visit Guru Nanak Sikh Academy. Three Asthma Workshops were arranged where parents and students attended.
Stevie went through what asthma is, triggers and the correct way of using inhalers and general advice.The turnout for the 3 days was very good and parents received valuable advice on how to help their children with their everyday condition and improve their attendance.
Our students showed to be engaging by taking part in demonstrations and some had a very good understanding of asthma.
A big thank you to all our staff for the help they have given throughout this process. We are working towards being able to call our school an “Asthma Champion”.
