Restart a Heart Day
Gayle Howarth, the UVHS School Nurse, arranged for our students in Years 7, 8 and 9 to take part in the Restart a Heart Day, which this year has gone global.
Thursday 18th October we welcomed staff from St. John’s Ambulance, the local Ambulance, Fire and Police Services, and Community First Responders to help the students learn vital life-saving CPR skills.
Firstly, students watched a short instruction video followed by a Q&A session. They then split into small groups, under the guidance of our professional visitors, to put into practice what they had learnt.
All Resusci Anne’s survived the day and 750 students and members of staff were trained with the essential skills to save a life!
