United Nations Day 2009

Last October 24, 2009 was our school's United Nations Day 2009. It's our annual activity which is geared towards enabling the kids to learn about the different countries of the world as well as pray for these countries. Through this activity, the kids will also learn that there are also other kids who lives in the other part of the world.

Same as last year, our students wore different costumes and represented different countries of the world. They all look very cute with their costumes. There parents really did a great job in providing beautiful costumes to their kids.

A New Hope for Sick Babies

Cerebral Palsy affects approximately 17 million people worldwide and thousands of babies are born with it every year. Until now, there was no treatment. But a new study has found that cooling the bodies and blood of high-risk full-term babies shortly after birth may significantly reduce disability or death.

Cerebral Palsy can be caused when the brain is starved of oxygen at birth. It often takes hours or days for dangerous chemicals to build up and kill the brain cells that control motor function. Lowering the brain's normal temperature four degrees slows the build up and prevents damage. In the study of 208 babies, only 44% who received cooling died or developed a disability, compared with 62% of those who received normal care. "This is the most promising treatment we have today", says study author Dr. Seetha Shankaran of Children's Hospital of Michigan.

Tear -Free Trims

A child's first haircut can be a scary experience. Try these tips for a tear- free trims.

  • Find a salon with able stylists who are trained to coax kids.
  • Choose a salon that caters to kids. Whimsical chairs and toys will make the experience more enticing.
  • Bring your child to meet the stylist at least once before the big day. Take her with you when you have your hair cut.
  • Sit your child on your lap and let the stylist work around you.
  • If your tot is too terrified to sit through a professional haircut, do it yourself. Use blunt-tipped scissors and dampen the hair with spray bottle. If you only get in a few snips, that's OK; offer lots of praise and try again another day.

Diabetes in Children

In the recent study, Diabetes is now considered as one of the most common chronic childhood diseases. It has been growing an alarming rate in children nowadays. The reason for this would be that there are now many fast food chains available. Just like here in our city, almost every corner you will find a fast food shop wherein kids are their main costumer. They also make their shops more attractive to kids. In school, I always make it a point to remind my students to eat the right kinds of food. But the bigger factor in helping them live a healthy lifestyle is through their parents.

Below are the signs of diabetes to look for in our children:
  • Frequent urination
  • Excessive thirst
  • Increased hunger
  • Weight loss
  • Tiredness
  • Lack of interest and concentration
  • Blurred vision
  • Vomiting and stomach pain (often mistaken as flu).
