Castlelyons Hospital Opens

Senior Infants thought we needed a hospital close by so we decided to set one up in our classroom! We had a reception area, a waiting room, a doctor’s surgery, a pharmacy and even an ambulance! We learned all about working in a hospital from Ryan’s mammy who is a nurse. She showed us how to give patients check ups and how to help them when they are sick or injured. We even got to hear our heartbeat with a stethoscope and check each other’ s throats for bumps with a special torch!We learned about medicine and the rules for taking it. Ms. Barry thinks we would be fantastic doctors and nurses when we grow up!
