This afternoon, Sally and Liz from St John Ambulance came in to school to teach FV and FVI some life-saving first aid skills. The girls were taught how to cope with bleeding, bruising, burns and scalding and how to dress a wound with bandages. They learned to recognise an asthma attack and how to assess an accident scene, how to put someone into the recovery position and how to deal with shock. They are now familiar with the contents of a first aid kit and would be able to assist someone who is choking or who has fainted. These skills will save lives. Huge thanks to Liz and Sally for spending the day with us, teaching us these invaluable skills and to Mrs Mannooch and Mrs Fairweather for organising such a fantastic, worthwhile day
