Eighth grade students talk to fifth graders about tobacco harm

Eighth graders from the national high school for humanitarian sciences and arts “Konstantin Preslavski” in Varna will discuss with fifth graders from the same school about the harms that smoking brings. The initiative is related to the National student competition “The project of our class – a life without tobacco”, clarified the pedagogic adviser of the school Snezhana Ilieva.

Rewards for the winners of the competition – projects that won first, second and third place – are provided. Organizers of “The project of our class – a life without tobacco” are the ministry of education, the ministry of healthcare and the program “HELP – life without tobacco” of the European commission.

The goal of our project is to show the younger students, especially those who have never tried smoking, the threat that smoking poses to their health, comments Snezhana Ilieva.

On November 20th, Bulgaira – among many other countries in the world – will celebrate the International day of non-smoking. The day is noted by the International union against cancer (UICC) as well.
