The Year 5’s have been lucky enough to participate in a 45-minute First Aid session facilitated by St John Ambulance Australia.
Students revised ‘DRSAB’ which involved assessing for DANGERS, obtaining a RESPONSE, SENDING for help (calling 000), checking AIRWAYS and BREATHING.
In addition to this, the session incorporated a practical CPR component, guiding students through how to perform CPR and when it is required in a First Aid situation.
Students then participated in group problem-solving scenarios based on a variety of first aid situations allowing them to apply their knowledge.
The Year 5 students gained so much from this experience which could potentially save lives.
