Sarah, aged six, is a champion handwasher!


SARAH Ali, age six from Ravenbank Primary School in Lymm has been crowned national champion of Medicspot’s primary school handwashing competition.
She impressed the judges with a song about how to wash your hands properly.
Digital health provider Medicspot launched the initiative earlier this year in a bid to encourage households across the UK to practise proper hand hygiene.
The competition challenged primary school pupils across the country to showcase handwashing by putting their creative skills to the test.
Hundreds hundreds of primary school pupils aged 5–11 from 158 schools in the UK taking part in the challenge.
The home challenge was launched as primary schools closed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 for all but children of critical workers.
Children were encouraged to complete the challenge while at home by making a poster, filming a video, recording a song, doing a science experiment or writing a poem, to name a few.
In their entry, pupils were challenged to get creative and include some key points about proper handwashing, including washing hands for at least 20 seconds and frequently throughout the day.
Ravenbank was one of 10 primary schools who were awarded £100 to go towards school supplies including books, software and art supplies.
Dr Johnson D’souza, medical director at Medicspot, said: “It’s never been more important to practise proper handwashing. We designed this challenge for children to complete at home to help promote frequent hand washing and help prevent the spread of coronavirus.”
“We hope the creativity from primary school pupils inspires households to practise handwashing regularly”, said Dr D’souza.
All of the winning entries are being showcased on the Medicspot website: www.medicspot.co.uk/handwash
