PUPILS from Gracefield School in Fishponds joined the Big First Aid Lesson Live, organised by St John Ambulance.

It was streamed live into schools across the country to teach children life saving skills and confidence.The event included live demonstrations, real life stories and opportunities to ask questions. Children learnt how to react to a range of first aid scenarios including choking, seizures and insect bites. 

Each child taking part gained a certificate of awareness from St John Ambulance.

Headteacher Elizabeth Morgan said: “Having a basic knowledge of first aid techniques gives our children an important life skill and we are very proud of our Key Stage 2 children who all took part and gained a certificate from the organisation.”
