Children Learn First Aid

Today Alison from St. John's ambulance visited our school. She led a whole school assembly about how to phone 999 and the information that the operator would ask for. She taught the children about how any false 999 calls can keep the emergency services from helping at a genuine incident. Afterwards she taught all the juniors some basic first aid including how to apply bandages and how to put a casualty in the recovery position. We hope that our children will never have to dial 999 or help in an emergency but if they do they will now be more likely to help or even to save a life.
