Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

COPD in the South West


Today, P 4-7 were lucky enough to have a visit from Professor John Lockhart from the University of the West of Scotland to talk to them about the BREATH campaign he has started, directed towards targeted regions in Scotland and England.

The pupils learnt all about Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD for short) and how the rates of this were exceptionally high in our own South West region of Scotland.

Pupils were educated of how the lungs work to keep us alive, how this disease can affect them and how it can be prevented or stopped.

This tied in well with our tobacco topic where we have been looking at smoking and the adverse health effects that come with it.

Our pupils were given instructions to educate, educate, educate everyone they could about what they have learnt today so don’t be surprised when they start letting you know about COPD in South West Scotland!

Here are some photos to show off what they were getting up to with Professor Lockhart!

Examining toxins in cigarettes, e-cigarettes and then nothing at all.
