Some of you may have seen the recent media attention around thunderstorm asthma. With Spring now with us the appearance of this condition is more likely. That, coupled with the magnitude of last year’s outbreak is why this has become a hot topic in health related media channels.
For those of you who have hay fever or occasional asthma, I have included the following link to help you understand more about this condition: https://www.nationalasthma.org.au/ Hay fever sufferers featured highly in the number of people who were affected last year.
If you have any questions around asthma management at school please don’t hesitate to ask me and please check in with your GP if you think you may have asthma symptoms because if you do the school will need to have a current asthma as a resource.
