Yesterday, Belle Vue students were lucky enough to have representatives from St John First Aid, come and take Primary School First Aid Awareness courses for all classes.
The grade 5/6 students showed a good prior understanding of First Aid, as well as a keen interest and enthusiasm to learn more and participate in the demonstrations.
All of the students took a lot out of the sessions. Below are some of the 5/6’s reflections.
“The session was really fun and simple which made it easy to understand” – Anisha
“I learnt how to put someone in the recovery position and why you put them in it, so they can breathe better” – Alyssa
“In this first aid session I learned about CPR and the recovery position as well as refreshing my mind on drsabcd” – Pharrell
“I found it interesting because if there is someone in danger I’d know what to do other than calling 000” – Steven
“At the end of this session, I think I feel much more confident since I now know what to do in this situation” – Nathan
“I learnt about the steps to take to help the person in need. They are DRSABCD: danger, response, send for help, airway, breathing, CPR and Defib” – Cherise
