YOUNGSTERS at a Kidderminster school will be taking part in a Guinness World Record breaking attempt for the largest simultaneous hand hygiene lesson.

The King Charles I School pupils will join other students across the country in the challenge on Monday.

A total of 100 pupils from the Comberton Road school will take part in the lesson which will show students the best way to wash their hands and use a “snot runway” to show how far a sneeze can travel.

To be awarded the world record title, all the teachers taking part have to hold a simultaneous lesson on hand hygiene to explain and demonstrate how bugs are spread and to discuss why it is important to prevent germs spreading
