First Aid training a success at Amesbury

By Eilis Cassidy | Posted: Thursday March 10, 2022

Our tamariki across all hubs delighted in putting their new first aid knowledge into practice last week following the workshops with facilitator, Josie.

It was all bandages, recovery positions, and emergency numbers, in the learning spaces as our tamariki familiarised themselves with what to do in the case of an emergency. Koru explored how to make safe decisions and identify potential risks at home and at school. Harakeke were busy demonstrating their abilities in the treatment of minor injuries whilst Pōhutukawa were exploring appropriate responses to a variety of situations requiring first aid.

Our tamariki showed great interest and enthusiasm which was equally matched in delivery by the programme facilitator on all three days. Josie gave some really positive feedback at the end of her visit to Amesbury. She said, “The students were all so receptive and polite, so it was a pleasure teaching them. I would be happy to come back any time.”

We hope that your child shared some of their learning from the workshop with you and, hopefully, they will carry this valuable knowledge with them going forward.

Amesbury school will be making a donation of $143.50 to the St John’s School’s Programme. We thank you for your donations as this ensures continued work in communities all over  Aotearoa, New Zealand. If you would still like to make a donation, you can do so through the 'Fundraising' section on Kindo (the school shop). This will remain open until  Friday the 18th of March. We thank you again for your contribution.
