Mullion Pupils attend Medicine and Healthcare Exhibition

Pupils from yr’s 10 and 11 with a strong interest in medicine or healthcare as a future career were invited to attend an interactive exhibition at the Knowledge Spa at Treliske Hospital on Wednesday 26th March.

Despite the day clashing with industrial action the pupils all showed their dedication by agreeing that the trip should still go ahead.

At the exhibition pupils were free to visit the stands and talk to the many professionals that were there. The stands were all interactive and the pupils enjoyed themselves thoroughly by performing CPR, making snot, discovering about balance by using a piece of balance equipment, listening to a foetal heart beat, watching a knee replacement, intubating a patient, discovering about the science and technology behind the equipment used for heart monitoring, they were even able to wear a special suit to enable them to experience what it was like to be aged and suffer the stiffness associated with getting older.

It’s not often that pupils get to attend an exhibition such as the one that was provided at The RCH Treliske, Knowledge Spa and the pupils came away with a wealth of information and literature having learnt about the opportunities available within the medical profession and inspired by the very welcoming and informative people who were at the event.

 

The pupils all expressed how much they had enjoyed the event and how informative and useful it was. One parents comment on the trip read: ‘He returned very enthused and keen to chat and show me all the leaflets he had picked up. Sounds like he could have spent all day there. He really did gain a lot from the trip.’
