Students Learn to Save Lives Thanks to Restart a Heart Day 2017
13 October 2017
On Friday 13 October, our Year 7 and 8 students took part in the nation’s biggest mass CPR training event – Restart a Heart Day 2017.
We welcomed volunteers from North West Ambulance Service and other local care providers who gave up their own time to deliver the lifesaving lesson to Year 7 and 8 students.
The lesson included a short presentation which outlined how to recognise a cardiac arrest, how to do effective CPR and how to use a defibrillator to give someone in cardiac arrest the best possible chance of survival.
This was followed by a practical element where every student practiced their new skills on a CPR manikin.
The aim of the day was to create a nation of lifesavers throughout the UK, and we are extremely proud to be a part of such a worthwhile campaign.
Thank you to our visitors for their support and for sharing their amazing knowledge on how to save someones life!
