Year 6 had a special visitor, Ryan Murphy into school on Tuesday to show them the basics of First Aid.

First Aid is the assistance given to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury, with care provided to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and/or promote recovery. It includes initial intervention in a serious condition prior to professional medical help being available, such as performing CPR while awaiting an ambulance, as well as the complete treatment of minor conditions, such as applying a plaster to a cut.

Basic first aid skills give the children some understanding of how to respond in an emergency and also boost their confidence, self-esteem, teamwork and communication skills.
