Sharing on Facebook, primary school teacher Mrs Woods says: “We are doing our best in room 550 to keep the germs away. Students got stamps on their hands this morning. If it’s gone by the end of the day from washing their hands, they get a prize 😉 We are trying.”
Mrs Woods user her personalised ‘Mrs Woods” stamp to mark students, the ink naturally washes away when hands are thoroughly cleaned.
“Best idea...... So doing that tomorrow,” said one mum.
“Teachers are brilliant,” added another.
But while some have praised Mrs Woods for her clever thinking, others have slammed her for what they believe is spreading even more germs.
Says one: “Is it tho? Same stamp touching dif hands.. spreading germs 🤦🏻♀️.”
Adds a second: “It’s under their fingernails that needs the scrubbing the most so they should stamp their fingertips.”
World Health Organisation (WHO) recommend cleaning your hands to protect against infection.
- Clean your hands regularly.
- Wash your hands with soap and water, and dry them thoroughly.
- Use alcohol-based handrub if you don’t have immediate access to soap and water.
