First Aid Week at Oakwood

Wow what a fantastic week!

In July 2018, the government published proposals for all school children in England to be given training in first aid and life-saving skills. As we often are, Oakwood Primary is ahead of the game!

Meon Valley HeartStart offer life-saving training for free. We were lucky enough to be able to train with them this week in Years 3, 4, 5 & 6. Mr. Wills said it was really good clear training and much better than previous training he had taken part in.

You can see in pictures that they all seemed to enjoy the training.  They learned about how to deal with making that life saving call, choking, serious bleeding, how to put someone in the recovery position and CPR. 

You can look at what was offered here: 

Meon Valley Heartstart are affiliated to the British Heart Foundation Heartstart initiative. As a thank you we managed to raise around £50 for the charity. Its not too late to donate if you wish either. Just check out the website above.

Do you know what DR ABCD means? Please ask you children.
