Where there’s muck there’s bugs.
« on: October 16, 2013, 10:26:51 AM »
A study by Public Health England (PHE) has found that use of interactive lesson plans significantly improved pupils’ knowledge of bugs and why hand hygiene is important in a farm setting with 80% of children correctly answering questions after the intervention. This research is published in the science journal PLOS ONE today.

School visits to farms are a positive educational experience but do pose a level of risk of infection from a number of bugs including ‘E. coli’, ‘Salmonella’ or ‘Campylobacter’ which are found in animal faeces and on surfaces around the farm.

those three bugs are very common and found practically everywhere - probably including school toilets and maybe their kitchens and classrooms too
