Tibshelf Community School students welcomed Carolyn Pope from the St John’s Ambulance, who taught them basic first aid, chocking, the recovery position and severe bleeding.

St John’s Ambulance run a first aid course which all Year 7 students participate in, as part of the school’s PSHE programme.

Sue Allen, head of PSHE, commented that: “Students were very aware of the significance of basic first aid as a result of the TV advertisements with Vinnie Jones.”
