St Johns First Aid Course

On Monday 17th July 19 very keen Y12s turned up to start their first aid course. Chris Greenaway and David Swann from St Johns Ambulance were our trainers for the day, they explained to students the importance of not only securing the casualties safety but also their own. There were some light-hearted moments when students had to practice techniques on each other and in the quiz style sessions.  However, students showed great maturity as they learned how to deal with emergency life support techniques as well as how to deal with minor and deteriorating conditions in any casualty. Areas covered included:

  • Priorities of first aid and managing the scene 
  • Communication and casualty care
  • Bites and stings
  • Burns
  • Severe and minor bleeds
  • Chest pains
  • Choking in adults
  • Fainting
  • Adult resuscitation
  • Sprains and strains
  • Treatment of an unresponsive casualty

Every one of our students showed their competency and will receive a Certificate which lasts for three years.

Congratulations everyone- you should all be really proud of your achievement.
