There was much excitement at two of Aitutaki’s schools on Tuesday, when pupils were presented with brand new toothbrushes and toothpaste.

 

Dr Roro Daniel presented the principals of Araura and Tekaaroa Primary Schools with the greatly appreciated gifts, generously donated by dental specialists Dr Warren Bell and his wife Lesley.

On a recent visit to Aitutaki the couple saw the need for dental supplies for local children and when they returned to New Zealand, arranged for toothbrushes and toothpaste to be gifted to every school child on Aitutaki.

The remaining schools on Aitutaki will be presented with their tooth care sets in the coming weeks.
