Gracefield School pupils join Big First Aid Lesson
Published on: 26 Aug 2016
PUPILS from Gracefield School in Fishpond joined the Big First Aid Lesson Live, organised by St John Ambulance.
It was streamed live into schools across the country to teach children life saving skills and give them the confidence to do the right thing when it really counts.
The event included live demonstrations, real-life stories and opportunities to ask questions. The children learned how to react to first aid scenarios including choking, seizures and insect bites. Each child taking part gained a certificate of awareness from St John Ambulance.
Head teacher, Mrs Morgan, said: "Having a basic knowledge of first aid techniques gives our children an important life skill and we are very proud of our Key Stage 2 children who all took part and gained a certificate from the organisation."
