Jenny & the Bear - Health & Wellbeing Programme for Schools

The Jenny & the Bear resource is a story which is part of a coordinated programme and aims to increase awareness about the effects of second hand smoke on children and what parents/carers can do to ensure their children are not exposed to its harmful effects.

The programme is aimed at Primary 1 classes and consists of a story being read to the class followed by a classroom activity to agree a name for the bear in the story, which is then entered into the competition to win a Teddy Bear mascot for their classroom.  All children who take part in the programme will be given a booklet version of the story to take home.

The second hand smoke message also links with the Scottish Government national “Take it right outside” campaign.  See www.rightoutside.org for further information.
