Rutland and Melton branch of Society for the Protection of Unborn Children donates foetal models to Casterton College
Casterton College has received a gift of a set of foetal models for use in their PSHE syllabus.
The models, which are worth £80. were a gift from the Rutland and Melton branch of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC).
The set comprises five anatomically accurate models of an unborn baby at different stages of pregnancy, from six weeks to 20 weeks. Having this teaching aid will enable pupils to see how a baby develops in its mother's womb.
The society’s Midlands regional chairman Bridget Francis presented the models to Katarina Bryjova, head of PSHE, on the college steps. Frances Levett, Rutland and Melton Branch chairman, accompanied her.
Bridget said: “We are delighted to be able to help a local college in this way. I am especially pleased, as I live in Rutland and my husband and children all attended the college.
“Many schools do not know we have these marvellous accurate and detailed models available, and we would like more educational and other establishments to contact us if they would also like to receive a set to help them teach about the miracle of life.”
The society has been operating for about 30 years locally and supplies speakers for schools, as well as offering a post-abortion counselling service.
The models are available free to schools and antenatal classes, by emailing email@example.com
