Dr Triplett's CE Primary School

“Love, Compassion, Respect”

Type 1 Diabetes Assembly

Three children who are all diabetic led an infant and junior assembly to explain the effects of having diabetes and how they feel about living with this complaint.

They spoke clearly and carefully explained how it can be diagnosed and their daily routines to make sure they remain healthy. Whilst some children are envious of the prospect of being given a biscuit or a drink of Lucozade during the day they were assured that having diabetes is not desirable.

The school recently received the Good Care Diabetes in School award.
