Heart Start first aid course for boarders

On Sunday, twenty four pupils successfully participated in a Heart Start first aid course, in essence a skills for life session. Each of the students, informed of protocols, practiced and then successfully tested in the following areas, recognising a heart attack and a cardiac arrest, helping an unconscious person, performing Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), helping someone choking and responding to serious bleeding incident.

We hope the skills are never used, however if called upon all twenty-four students now have the skill set to help save life. Well done to all those pupils in attendance.
