PICKERING Brook students have made Midland hospital patients and caregivers smile with their handmade get well and thank you cards.

St John of God Midland Public and Private Hospitals chief executive Glen Power said those in the children’s ward were extremely grateful for the cards from Pickering Brook Primary School’s Year 2/3 class.

“The cards brought a smile to the faces of our patients, doctors and caregivers and certainly helped to brighten their days,” Dr Power said.

“It was very caring and thoughtful of the students to create the cards.

“The students showed great creativity in the incorporation of plasters into the artwork of their cards.”

The cards were created as part of the school’s Treat Everyone Decently program and the class teacher chose the hospital after one of its nurses visited the school.
