This week we were lucky enough to have a visit from the Fire Service. Taking time out from their very important work saving lives, these real life heroes stopped in to teach Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to our Year 6 children.
CPR is an emergency procedure that combines chest compressions, often with artificial ventilation (tilting the head back and blowing into the mouth) to keep the body and brain alive in a person who is in cardiac arrest – until a doctor or paramedic can take over and help. The process involves listening, pumping the chest, blowing and counting. All the Year 6 children loved the opportunity, even if a few were a bit weary of the responsibility the knowledge came with!
Oh and what’s a got training session without a selfie at the end?back to news
