A HUGE model ear helped to convey a message of big importance - teaching students to look after their hearing.

The Bionic Ear Show, run by national charity Deafness Research UK, rolled into Sheffield College for its latest lesson.

The show is touring the country’s schools, colleges and adult community groups, warning people of the dangers to their hearing from loud noise.

The giant ear model - over 22ft high and 116 times the size of a human ear - was used to teach the audience how the ear works, what can go wrong and what can be done to put things right.

Teacher Tobin May said: “We had a great time presenting the Bionic Ear Show and providing hearing screening for students in Sheffield.

“We have always performed for receptive and enthusiastic audiences in South Yorkshire and we would like to thank Sheffield College and its students for inviting us and participating.”
