First Aid

A long time ago, my eldest son expressed an interest in learning some First Aid. He was delighted, therefore, when another member of our Home Education Group talked about organising a couple of sessions with a volunteer from St John's Ambulance, the first of which happened yesterday. Around a dozen children - aged 5-13 - had a lot of fun with a lot of bandages, and along the way were taught CPR with a dummy, responding to bleeding, breaks and faints, and reporting an emergency. A follow-up class will happen in the summer.
