Spread Happiness, Not Germs | King's Hall School Taunton

Phew, what a week it’s been! I have to say I think I am now fully qualified as a travel agent, taxi driver and mad shopper (nothing left on the shelves for me!). Trying to sort out all the overseas travel has been no mean feat, but we’ve done it and I can happily report that all our boarders will at some point make it home to the safety of their family this week.

As I said, it really has been a chaotic week but the children have carried on as normal with the exception of they now all have the cleanest hands you will ever see! We did an experiment earlier this week involving a plate of water and some pepper; the latter of which reflected germs. The children put one unwashed finger into the mixture and the pepper stuck to their finger. They then washed their hands and when they put their finger back in the water, the pepper spread to the sides. A little bit of magic and a great way to demonstrate just how important it is for us to wash our hands.

Who knows what next week will bring, but we will continue to spread happiness - not germs!
