Preventing getting sick

On the 8th, 23rd, 29th and 30th of November the community health specialist for 3rd-5th grades held lectures for the students, informing them on how not to get ill, and informed them on the different diseases that might “attack” students during the cold weather times.

During the lectures the children were also educated on the common causes of the flu, COVID-19, the various types of colds, and watched a short film on the various ways of spreading germs, what one should do when ill, and how to prevent these illnesses from taking hold.

Discussions were had on how to stick to a sneezing and coughing etiquette, students learned the “Dracula move” and found out why sneezing or coughing into the palm of one’s hand is wrong. Children shared their insights on what would happen if germs were visible and how they would spread in the environment if we didn’t pay attention to hygiene and health-safety requirements. At the end of the lecture the students also remembered hand-washing movements.
