Health & Fitness Active Leaders QualificationPosted on: 22/05/2023
The Year 9 Health and Fitness students have started an additional course to gain extra qualifications which can be used to gain experience and paid employment as well as volunteering roles. Students have successfully passed the First Aid Awareness section of the course by learning about the three 'P's' - Preserve Life, Prevent further injury and Promoting recovery. Learning the acronym DR ABCD and how to deal with an unconscious casualty that is breathing and how to place them into the recovery position as well as an unconscious casualty that is not breathing and how to do CPR. They also practiced how to get a defibrillator to a casualty quickly, how to apply the pads and follow instructions. These are invaluable life skills.
