Florence Nightingale minister to the needy

16th October 2013.

Year 2 resembled Scatari Hospital today as Florence Nightingale, and her lamp, made an appearance to help the injured, sick and needy.

The children had an as close to life experience of the life of a soldier and nurse in the Crimean war as we could get. They learned about the conditions of hospitals and the way in which patients were treated.

Florence Nightingale explained about how medical care changed because of her and the children used the experience to create some fantastic poetry and other work.
