Asthma services for schools
Your local Asthma Foundation can guide your school to achieve Asthma First Aid training for all staff through our free online package or sessions in schools. The training covers asthma medications, symptoms, triggers, Asthma First Aid in an emergency and school management processes.
Teachers of primary aged students can do Asthma Kids with their class. This is an online interactive trail with the character, Chester, and is set up for school use as well as for families. Asthma Foundation staff can also attend your school and talk to students of any age. We have a variety of packages to suit your needs.
Asthma Foundations run information sessions for people with asthma and their carers. Many parents/carers of school aged children attend these session to help with their management of their child’s asthma. If you have families struggling with their child’s asthma, suggest they contact the local Asthma Foundation to discuss options to assist them.
