Chest, Heart and Stroke Workshop
Primary 7 took part in a Chest Heart and Stroke workshop. In the workshop we took part in lots of fun activities and learnt about the dangers of smoking.
One of the most eye opening and effective activities that we took part in, was were they took a picture of Sarah and edited it to age her to 72. We were able to see what she would look like if she didn’t smoke and what she would look like if she did smoke – have a look at the difference yourself in the photos. We also learnt about the many different chemicals (including poisonous ones) that are in a cigarette and we were told what could happen if we start smoking when we are older.
P7 have completed two Extern workshops on how to cope with stress. We learned about the signs of being stressed, such as being easily annoyed or feeling a lot more tired than usual. We also learned about how we can make ourselves feel less stressed by watching a movie or having a long bath. We talked about how if we feel stressed we can talk to someone we trust. We learned some tactics on how to relax and breathe better when we are stressed. The advice the lady gave us is very helpful especially for the children doing the AQE and GL tests.
