On Tuesday the 10th of October 2023, Year 5 and 6 participated in a mini first aid course. We learnt how to perform CPR, the recovery position on an unconscious person and how to help someone who is choking. We learnt lots of knowledge about treating burns, head bumps, bleeding and bone breakage. Everybody enjoyed the experience because we learnt so much by interacting with the model dummies. We learnt about a phrase called Danger, Response, Airway and Breathing; this was used to check whether an unconscious person was breathing. For burns, we were taught how long to put it under a tap which was for 20 minutes and after to cover it with cling film.
