Learning First Aid at St. Anne

The grade 7 and 8 students at St. Anne Catholic Elementary School kicked off their Monday, May 6th, with a unique activity. As part of their unit on personal safety, the students took part in a First Aid workshop with Michelle Goheen, a client services co-ordinator with the St. John Ambulance organization. The students went through what is in a First Aid kit, the practical applications for use in case of an emergency, and as well how to use the equipment appropriately. St. Anne teacher Julie Cassie was one of the teachers who was present for the demonstration, and was excited for her students to be a part of this hands on learning opportunity. “When we think of First Aid and St. John’s Ambulance, most people immediately think of C.P.R. training, but in most non-crisis emergencies, a working knowledge of a First Aid kit is very important. It is a great opportunity for our students to learn how to take charge in an emergency situation and be able to help out an injured person(s). “
