Pathways to Health
Triple Science students visited Treliske Hospital to attend the ‘Pathways to Health’ workshop. From resuscitating dummies to scrubbing up for surgery, the students had an insight into the world of health care. They investigated the monumental advances there have been in science, which included a cutting edge blood filtration system, a dancing robot and a car you can drive with one hand!
Treliske health and well-being centre was packed full of stalls with information and goodies about the various routes into health care. It was a fantastic afternoon out and the students were a credit to the school. They took full advantage of all the workshops and asked lots of interesting questions to the staff and speakers.
It was overwhelming at how many different jobs there are in health care, and students came away with a much broader view of professions. Subsequently, conversations covered the types of jobs the students wanted to do when they were older; doctors, paramedics, nurses… It was inspiring to hear all the things these talented students want to achieve from their career. These students will go on to be our future health care workers bringing a fresh insight and creative talent to contribute to our ever improving health care service.
