On Thursday, children and staff celebrated 70 years of the NHS! Many of us dressed up as doctors, nurses, patients; anyone linked to the NHS. We began our day with a whole school assembly. We learnt about life before the NHS and Mrs Wilkes shared some photographs of her Auntie Val who has worked in the NHS for 40 years.
Some of us very visited by Kelvin Brown: he is now retired, but he has worked in Mental Health Nursing for 7 years and General Nursing for 14 years (Cardiac Intensive Care and Liver Transplant Services), both at the QE in Birmingham. Some of us were visited by Rehana Bi, a Clinical Research Sister in Paediatrics. Brandon’s mum, who is a paramedic, kindly volunteered to bring an ambulance to school: many children had the chance to go inside it, try on some equipment and listen to the siren (we had to cover our ears for that bit)!
Thank you to everyone who works or has worked in the NHS for the care you provide to us and our community. Happy 70th Birthday!
