Teddy Bear’s Hospital

Teddy Bear’s Hospital -Junior and Senior Infants

At the end of January, we  went on a class trip to the Teddy Bear’s Hospital in NUIG.  We were so excited.  Everyone brought in their teddies and dolls, who had ailments varying from broken arms to sore throats.  When we arrived we were split into groups and brought to different doctors.  They asked us for our teddy bear symptoms and wrote out a prescription for them.  We had to then bring our teddies to get stitches, an MRI scan or an x-ray.  Once we had our teddies diagnosed and fixed up we had a great time on the different bouncy castles and got our face’s painted.   We all really enjoyed the day and so did our teddies! 🙂   Here are some pictures for you ….
