Yesterday, the Wellington Regional Asthma Society presented the Hailer Alert – Sailor the Puffer Fish Show. The purpose of the show was to educate children and teachers/parents on the triggers and symptoms of asthma. The show was light-hearted and included music and songs to deliver the message of asthma in a fun and interactive way. Did you know that in 2012, there were about 500,000 asthma related student absences from schools in New Zealand. Chris Lam Sam of the popular kid’s show, The Funky Monkeys presented the show.
