Did someone call a Doctor?

In partnership with Queen’s University and Sentinus, we were delighted again to participate in the ‘Medics in Primary School’ Programme. We hosted four second year medical students – two of whom were past-pupils.

During their ten-week placement, the medics got the opportunity to impart their expert knowledge to the Primary Seven pupils and teachers. Through a range of practical activities, presentations and quizzes, pupils deepened their understanding of the human body: exploring body systems, investigating the effects of lifestyle choices, studying the structure of skin and the functioning of the brain. Making a model of the components of blood using cheerios, marshmallows, oats, water and food colouring is just one novel example.

The pupils relished the experience and we wish Niamh, Kate, Ted and Emma every success with their future medical careers.
