News Year 9

Year 9s work through St John Ambulance course.

In a day-long workshop led by Matron, Year 9 pupils have been getting to grips with essential First Aid skills, ready to employ in the event of an emergency.

Mrs Wheatle guided the girls through the step-by-step process of hands-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) before they got the chance to practise on a dummy. They also covered bleeding and shock, and what to do if ever faced with bone, muscle and joint injuries.

The course is part and parcel of the girls’ PSHE learning, culminating in a recognised certificate.
