Today, Dawn Evans, company director of Ajuda, delivered free first aid training to students at St Richard Gwyn Catholic High School in Barry, South Wales, so that more young people have the knowledge and skills to act in situations of medical emergency.
Dawn talked about the scenarios in which first aid may be required, and the appropriate first aid to administer if a person is choking or unconscious. The students, after listening to Dawn and watching both her demonstrations and example videos, were familiarised with the step-by-step procedures of CPR and the recovery position. They were then able to put their new knowledge into practice – everyone delivered CPR on manikins, and in pairs or groups of three, had multiple turns at putting someone into the recovery position, under Dawn’s supervision. By the end of the session, the students felt confident in basic first aid procedures, and far better equipped to deal with such a situation in everyday life.
Many thanks to the students and teachers at St Richard Gwyn Catholic School – it was a pleasure delivering the course today and we’re glad that the students have confidence in their new first aid abilities.
