Free Basic First Aid Training

In light of recent events, we would like once again, to offer free basic first aid training to all parents/carers and community members. The course covers emergency life-saving skills such as CPR and use of a defibrillator, as well as how to deal with unconsciousness, choking and severe bleeding.

The sessions will be led by Miss O’Neill who is a trained first responder and experienced first aid instructor. Courses will run between 6.30-8.30pm on the last Tuesday of every month, beginning in January. If you are interested, please email the school. Pre-booking is essential.
