Last week we had St John’s Ambulance in to run a brief first aid course at appropriate developmental levels for our classes. St John’s know that even basic first aid can save a life. It was a great experience for all and I would like to include the letter below from a parent thanking us for this opportunity….

”Dear Sue,

 Just wanted to take a moment and say a big thank you for the incursion my children had today. I’m not sure if the whole school participated.­­­­­­———–   has been practicing his DR ABCD since he got home and has just shown my husband what he learnt. 

As a first aider myself I have kept my first aid qualifications up to date since I was 16 years old, including annual CPR refreshers and recently my girls attended a surf life saving camp where they also learnt the basics.

 I believe it is necessary for all children to understand the concept and have never seen our school hold such a workshop.

 Thank you”
