Lifesaving Education at Sherburn High

Students at Sherburn High School had the fantastic opportunity of learning vital lifesaving skills during a recent session with Yorkshire Ambulance Service.

Year 7 pupils at Sherburn High School worked with the Kippax First Responders and Yorkshire Ambulance Service staff to learn important first aid and lifesaving skills.

They taught the students cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to mark European Restart a Heart Day, which was held on the 16th October.

During the course of the day, the volunteers taught more than 120 students these emergency procedures.

A spokesperson for the school said the day went well, and all the student thoroughly enjoyed the session and went a way with a far greater knowledge of what to do in case of emergencies.
