Last Thursday, P7 pupils undertook food hygiene training under the watchful eye of Patrick McCafferty, Food Safety Officer for Highland Council. The P7s were reminded when and how to wash their hands. Mr McCafferty used UV light to show the effectiveness of thorough hand washing in eliminating bacteria, as well as how cross contamination can make bacteria spread!
On their return to class, the P7s were able to use their knowledge to design informative food hygiene posters.
They will be able to apply their food hygiene knowledge soon – when they cook lasagne!
