Kennet Valley School pupils learn important life-saving skills

Learning the recovery positionLearning the recovery positionPupils at Kennet Valley School learned essential first aid skills this week, when they were visited by Georgie Morse RN from Little Soldiers First Aid.  

 

Georgie, who is an experienced Senior Nurse in Paediatric Accident and Emergency, taught pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 important basic first aid skills.  Pupils learnt how to treat minor burns and nose bleeds, how to put someone in the recovery position and how to call the emergency services.  The older pupils were also taught how to give CPR.

Learning CPRLearning CPRHeadteacher, Emma Russell, said, "We arranged the First Aid classes for the older children in the school as we wanted them to learn skills which they could use in everyday life.  Having to help a friend or family member who is unwell can be very worrying for a child and as a school we wanted to enable our children to deal with these difficult situations with confidence.”

Learning how to bandageLearning how to bandage“The children were thoroughly engaged and interested and Georgie stated that they were all a delight to teach and that they had learnt a lot.  We have since heard that pupils went home and enthused to their parents about what they had learnt, some of their comments were as follows:

“I feel that the course has affected me, as if one of my relatives is hurt I have the confidence to help out.”

“I enjoyed the afternoon as Year 6 pupils got a personal session on how to do CPR – I think learning this is extremely important and I loved it!”

“I felt like I learned so much which made me happy and now I know what to do in an emergency when someone is suffering”.
