On Monday 18 June 2012 pupils at Innellan Primary School, as part of their Health & Wellbeing “National Smile Month” project activities, were delighted to welcome again our two dental nurses Fiona and Rhona from Dunoon Community Hospital. All P1 – P5 pupils were encouraged to participate in a mini drama session where they were allowed to dress up as a dentist or a dental nurse and carry out a mouth inspection using real dental tools. The excellent “Curriculum for Excellence” workshop concluded with all pupils receiving super “goody bags” which were very gratefully received.
Later on in the morning all pupils were then treated to a super workshop presented by our local Police Community Liaison officer Claire Hendry and the Community Liaison Officer from Lochgoilhead……. Local residents close to the school could be seen at their windows when all pupils got a chance to be the driver of the Police car and let the emergency siren off. Great fun was had by all when Officer Hendry then gave the children the opportunity to take their own fingerprints which were taken home for their parents to see. (And safely disposed of, we hope!!)
