Nurses’ Day 2018

To celebrate Nurses’ Day, students in the schoolroom have been learning about the lives of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.

To reflect that nurses have caring and helping hands, the children and young people drew around their own hands and wrote in the fingers, the qualities that they consider that nurses have. In addition to this, students took photographs of some of the nurses on the Children’s Ward and some of them, using a variety of techniques, created portraits based on the photographs.

Nurses’ Day cards were made to celebrate this important occasion too.

The students’ work was put into a portable display which was on show at a special service for nurses and midwives at St Patrick’s Church close to New Cross. The event was attended by the deputy mayor and mayoress to honour nursing practitioners and midwives of all ranks. Nursing professors and tutors from Wolverhampton University attended with some of their student nurses .
