Teddy Bear Hospital

The Prep School was delighted to once again welcome the Medical Students from UCC’s Surgeon Noonan Society to our school last Friday as the lunchroom was transformed into a hospital ward for a Teddy Bear’s Hospital Fundraiser.

This event involved the boys and girls from CBC and Scoil Mhuire bringing their “sick” or “injured” teddies or furry toys, along with a donation, to the team of Medical Students who examined the teddy much like a GP or hospital doctor, prescribed some tender loving care with a side of 5-a-day fruit and vegetables, and offered some bandages for good measure! This activity aimed to demystify the healthcare experience for children and remove any stigma/fears they may have about hospitals and doctors, while raising funds for those less fortunate than us in the third world.
