Year 10 First Aiders

Students in Year 10 studying child development have just completed a first aid course specifically covering emergency first aid for babies and toddlers. The course took place over two days and students learnt how to deal with burns, breaks, bandaging, choking and asthma in babies and small children. As well as this the course covered how to perform CPR and mouth-to-mouth and how to use a defibrillator – skills which could be applied to anyone, not just babies.

Mrs Kirkpatrick said:

“another successful Year 10 cohort has passed their first aid course. It was great to see so many of our students become potential life-savers and to learn skills which are so useful to them. They were all fantastic over the 2 hours and I was very proud of the way they all threw themselves into the practical elements, which can be a little embarassing!”
