Today 2AK and 2SD started their new IPC topic 'How Are You?' by looking at life in a busy hospital. We then took turns at being doctors, nurses and patients ourselves. There were a variety of illnesses including headaches, sore eyes, broken bones and some patients even needed to go to the operating theatre! The medical staff were brilliant and all children were resumed to full health and well being by 3.15pm.
