Learning some vital lessons

Worcester Editorial 22nd Jan, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016   0

COOL-HEADED children at city primary school had their finger on the pulse as they learnt how to save a life.

Staff from St John Ambulance visited Red Hill Primary School on Monday (January 20) where they taught Year Five and Six pupils basic first aid.

The day, which tied in with the school’s casualty topic, saw children take part in a range of activities and learn about electric burns and slings.

Headteacher Spencer Morris said: “They had an amazing day and even managed to master the art of the triangular bandage.

“They are now fully qualified to treat basic first aid injuries and know how to save someone’s life in an emergency situation.”
