Hands being washed under a tap in a sink. Hand hygiene has been a neccessary step in reducing the covid-19 pandemic.

Hand hygiene is the single most important method of preventing and controlling infection, as has been proven in the recent outbreak of the global Corona Virus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands correctly, therefore keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Unfortunately children are not as vigilant with keeping their hands clean as would be liked.

This session is designed to teach children the importance of good hand hygiene. It also raises awareness the effects that unclean hands can have on their health and teaches them the correct technique to wash their hands effectively.

Pupils Will:

  • Have an increased understanding of the need for good hand hygiene.

  • Be more aware of the impact poor hand hygiene has.

  • Have an increased understanding of germs and how they can affect their health.

  • Have an increased knowledge of when they should wash their hands.

  • Have an increased knowledge of how to wash their hands correctly.

  • Have the opportunity to experiment hand washing techniques by the use of the ‘Light Box’ reinforcing their understanding.
