Although children may get small bleeding cut or a major strain/sprain in case they fall down during playtime, boarding/unboarding the bus. Apart from these, children may suffer from nosebleeds, a frequent emergency to be encountered especially in summer season. Teachers should be trained to tackle a rare emergency scenario known as choking as it can really cause big trouble and may land the child to the hospital.
