Everyone has been to see the school nurse at least once in their lives (and many of us more than once), be it for a genuine illness or just to get a sneaky note to get out of school early. It is easy to forget, though, just how important she is to the well beings of ourselves and our fellow school friends. What would we do when we injure ourselves or are feeling unwell at school without the school nurse? To let her know that we don’t take her efforts for granted, there is a special day once a year where we can celebrate her in style: School Nurse Day!
This holiday is celebrated all around the world, and pupils and teachers everywhere are taking the opportunity to express their gratitude for the love and care the nurses give them on a daily basis. Here’s to those hard working nurses, and to the good health they help bring. Thank you to Washington Elementary's very special Nurse Sisson!
