28 Jun JRCS Sixth Form
Over 40 Year 12 students have taken part in a First Aid Course during this academic year.
Students were taught the theoretical aspects of dealing with emergencies and the protocols to ensure that the casualty and themselves remained as safe as possible.
Being given the task to identify what an injury might be and what course of action may be required made the students think about difficult scenarios in the safety of the classroom.
To make it more realistic the students were put in practical situations either as the casualty or the first aider. All casualties, I am pleased to report, survived!
Students performed amazingly well during the course and are all now more confident to deliver what might be necessary lifesaving actions.
This is an amazing life skill that will look impressive on applications but more importantly may just be that bit of knowledge that means someone is able to live another day due to our students actions.
