Corby Glen Community Primary School pupils learn vital skills from React First Aid paramedics
Pupils took a break from their lessons to learn some valuable life skills from paramedics last week.
Rachel Makin and Matt Snow, who work for React First Aid, visited Corby Glen Community Primary School on Thursday and Friday to train the whole school in basic first aid.
Pupils were taught how to react in an emergency situation and learned skills including CPR, defibrillation and bandaging.
“We had the best time visiting the school,” said Rachel.
“We now have qualified mini medics who we would be proud to have on our team.”
Headteacher Natalie Willcock said they plan to revisit and refresh this training as part of the school’s curriculum every other year.
“As a school we feel if all schools provided this training children would be more confident with these skills as they enter into adult life,” she said.
“You never know, along their journey they may actually save someone's life.”
