A "friendly rivalry" at Surrey primary school has led to more than 3,000 vaccines donated to UNICEF for children all over the world
Kids Boost Immunity (KBI) is a Canadian health platform designed to increase literacy for immunization in schools. The program, according to kidsboostimmunity.com, was "designed to bring it into line with provincial science and social research curricula around different levels of immunization and global health."
KBI kicks off in April 2018. Children to stimulate children are piloted in BK before receiving funding from the Public Health Agency if Canada extends to schools across the country for the school year 2019/2019.
The website of the program includes lesson plans that are combined with an online test.
Ian Row, a national manager of Kids Boost Immunity, said children could receive a test vaccine, but there are catches.
– You have to take 80%. There is an incentive for the child – if he does not get 80% – to come back and do it again, but they have to do all the questions again, "he said," Many children do this because they want to get the vaccine.
Senators of Sen. Rathey Elements in North Surrey have been working on the Kids Boost Immunity lesson plans and quizzes since the beginning of the school year.
To date, 127 pupils from the 5th to the 7th grade have answered more than 50,000 questions and received 3,144 vaccines for children.
Grade 6/7 teacher Chris Pathe said his class began using the program, and then challenged four other classes, including the class of Talis 6/7 by Tanis Philadelphus.
"We all like friendship rivalry, we all play together, we all play flagging together, we're very inclusive," Patty said.
He then challenges Class 5.
"They finally took the first place of all of us, they came from nowhere," he said.
Patey said the program was specifically designed for Grade 6 immunizations.
"We usually have to deal with it every year and they are always afraid We try to take the stigma so we do not get an unpleasant needle or big shots by putting some of the challenges facing children from other countries and adults from other countries countries, "Pathey said.
"Once they appreciated more, they understood a little more that we are very privileged to have access here."
The Philadelphia said that after the students had learned vaccines, they would be donated, they were "super excited."
"This is one of the things we definitely love about it, helping to connect them to the rest of the world by helping children in other countries who do not have the same health benefits and opportunities we do," she said.
As a "predominantly South Asian neighborhood," teachers are "really aware of the fact that many of these children and their families come from situations in India, Pakistan and many Middle Eastern countries that do not have the same access to health care."
"He really brings them back home, saying," My cousins do not have this. My cousins can not get this because they live in the village and doctors come to them once a month, and then there is a group of 1,000 people deep, "he said.
Filatouroul said that through KBI pupils and teachers learn that "1.5 million children die each year due to preventable diseases." She said that because the resources of the program provide evidence, "you know you can trust the information."
The KBI Web site says that "although immunization is widespread as a miracle of modern medicine, the spread of online disinformation has led to some parents choosing to miss certain vaccines or altogether to avoid immunization." As a result, the program was developed "as part of greater efforts to find new ways to counter disinformation on the Internet."
Rowe said the program was "somewhat irritated by quizzes for monsters."
"With so many of them online now on every strip you can imagine (such as)" Which game on the throne is characteristic? Take the test: "It's like learning for the good, in a way."
The KBI website has a map that eight schools in the Surrey school district are currently participating in.
