First aid win for school pupils

Have your say

PUPILS from two schools in the county have won a place in the final of a national first aid competition.

School children from Shafton ALC in Barnsley and Ladywood Primary School in Grimethorpe won the regional round of the St John Ambulance National Schools’ First Aid competition.

The competition is made up of a variety of tasks to be completed in pairs or as a group with the five strong teams completing first aid scenarios.

Jo Buchan, Education Officer at St John Ambulance, said: “They showed real ability in using their life saving knowledge but also proved how learning first aid gives you confidence, teamwork and communication skills.”
