Year 1 welcome back dentist and doctor past pupils

Girls in Year 1 in the Junior School have been learning ‘All about me’, and were delighted to get a helping hand from some familiar faces when past pupils came to visit.

Hanisha Chadha, class of 2014 and fourth-year dental student at the University of Sheffield, with Aaminah Akhtar, class of 2012 and second year dental student at the University of Sheffield, are now pursuing their dreams of becoming dentists and were happy to help the girls learn about the importance of looking after their teeth.

They showed the class how to clean their teeth properly with fun props, including a giant toothbrush and set of teeth and also taught the girls how to think carefully about good or bad food, making sure to eat healthy and keep teeth pearly white.

Maria Keriakos, class of 2016, a third year medical student at the University of Sheffield who is currently undertaking innovative research about dialysis, also took time out to come back to school.

She spoke about what it is like to be a doctor, how doctors ask questions to find out what is wrong with patients, and how medical technology including x-rays and stethoscopes work. The class finally had the chance to put what they’d learned into practice with a roleplay to find out why their patient “Sally” was ill.

Maria, Hanisha and Aaminah set an amazing example and made learning about the body fun and exciting. After their visit, the girls know how to stay healthy, smiling, and aspiring to be just as clever as the ‘big girls’ someday.
