Kimberly-Clark Professional Go Back To School

Kimberly-Clark Professional has launched a new wellness programme aiming to bring together hand hygiene solutions and education resources in a bid to improve pupil and staff wellbeing in the school environment, as well as educating children about the importance of good hand hygiene before preparing food.

As part of Hand Wash Heroes – part of KCP’s Healthy Schools Project*, products are specially designed for use by children. These products include soap with smaller shots for little hands and easy-to-use hand towel systems that help control usage. Participating schools are also given access to educational materials designed to engage and motivate pupils, teachers and staff to help reduce the spread of germs by learning about the importance of good hand washing.

Dr. Louise Vickerman, EMEA Target Market Manager for Education at Kimberly-Clark Professional, said: “Today children are encouraged to handle and prepare food more and more, both in the classroom and at

home for fun. It is therefore important to teach them about the importance of hand hygiene as part of that. The new resources are an extension of the existing Hand Wash Heroes lessons or can be used as a standalone tool to support food preparation activity.”

The two new sets of materials for key stage 1 and key stage 2 include a poster and lesson plans with simple activities for teaching about the importance of hand hygiene before preparing food.

“We have included ideas of how to promote good hand washing behaviour and to motivate children as part of a healthy lifestyle,” added Dr. Vickerman. “Washing hands before preparing food is only one time out of many that children and adults should wash their hands. Therefore, the new resources can fit well within other areas of the curriculum such as health and self- care, and science for example.”

The Healthy Schools Project* was set up by Kimberly-Clark Professional to help reduce illnesses and subsequent absenteeism of both pupils and staff in schools and nurseries.

“Every day, thousands of children are off sick due to minor illnesses such as colds and tummy bugs depriving them of valuable learning time,” said Dr. Vickerman. “Whenever something is updated in the National Curriculum it is important to consider the correct hygiene recommendations to support and maintain children’s wellness. The new resources now provide that for practical cooking and are also an opportunity to reinforce knowledge to help children develop good hygiene habits as part of their daily lives.” New Operations Director For Julius Rutherfoord
