All Year 8 students completed a basic First Aid course in preparation for their Cape to Cape expedition. St John Ambulance ran the students through both the theory and practical components of assisting somebody in an emergency. They learnt the meaning of DRSABCD, practised CPR on mannequins and how to place somebody in the recovery position. Hopefully none of their newly acquired skills will be required on the upcoming camp, however it was great to see the students engaged and interested in how to react to different scenarios if they did occur.
