Over the last half-term KS3 students have been learning how to save lives by taking part in a First Aid course provided by HSTC. Students have learned basic but fundamental first aid techniques such as: communicating with the casualty, treating minor bleeds and burns, applying dressings, treatment of an unresponsive casualty, treatment of a choking casualty as well as learning how to perform CPR.

All students who participated in the course came away with a First Aid certificate but more importantly they learned valuable life-saving techniques and emergency life skills which will hopefully give them the confidence to deal with a real-life crisis if it should ever occur.
