Parliamentary recognition of hand-washing experiment

Woy Woy Public School has been recognised in State Parliament for its experiment on the effectiveness of hand-washing.
Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch mentioned the school and its experiment in Parliament during Education Week.
School principal Ms Ona Buckley said: “Ms Tesch praised our students and teacher Mr Owens for their Science experiment around germs and recognising the importance of washing hands with soap and using hand sanitiser during this time of Covid-19.
“Well done, Woy Woy Public School.”
Ms Buckley said Ms Tesch had sent a copy of the recognition certificate sent to the school.
“We also had a link to a pod cast of Ms Tesch acknowledging us in a sitting Parliament.
“How very exciting.”
Assistant Principal Ms Michelle Williams said: “We are thrilled that the hard work of Mr David Owens and his 3-6O students has been recognised in Parliament.
“Mr Owens and his class conducted a science experiment to discover the best way to clean their hands.
“This was a valuable learning experience for all students and interestingly the results showed that washing your hands with soap is the best way to eliminate germs.”
