First Aid prepared for their Duke of Edinburgh Award

Forty-five Y9 students have successfully completed an intensive practical first aid course to prepare them for their Bronze Award expeditions.

The training was delivered by the British Red Cross and covered CPR, the recovery position and how to deal with breaks, cuts, burns and head injuries. The session involved different scenarios and also how to use everyday items to treat injuries.

Congratulations to all the students who completed the course and I hope all students now have a better understanding of how to deal with any first aid situations that could arise whilst they are out walking - fingers crossed these new skills will not be needed on expedition!
