School Asthma Management

The administration of Holy Trinity would like to advise all parents that one or more students in our school community has been diagnosed with Asthma. This is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways, marked by spasm in the bronchi of the lungs, causing difficulty breathing. It usually results from an allergic reaction or other forms of hypersensitivity.

All our staff have been made aware of this situation and have been instructed in the correct procedures regarding asthma management.

Prevention, of course, is the best approach. Some common triggers of asthma include, but are not limited to dust, grass, pollen, pet fur/hair and strong smells or chemicals. Although this may or may not affect your child’s class directly, we would ask for your understanding that in a school setting where children are in contact with a large number of students and staff, exposure to any number of asthma triggers may be increased. We would like to remind parents and students to please be mindful when making decisions such as wearing perfume, cologne or using other products with strong scents. Also, please check to ensure that your child’s clothes are as free as possible from pet fur or hair.

We endeavour to make the school a safe environment for all students. Anyone wishing further information about asthma may contact the school.
