How to save a life

On Monday 7th October  3 members of the resuscitation team from Stoke Mandeville Hospital came to Tring Park school to teach our prep, 1st, 2nd and 3rd Forms how to save a life with CPR and using an AED. These training sessions are part of a national campaign called ‘Restart a heart’ The Restart a Heart campaign (RSAH) is an annual initiative led by the Resuscitation Council (UK) in partnership with The British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, St John Ambulance, and Yorkshire Ambulance Service which aims to improve the low numbers of people surviving out-of-hospital cardiac arrests.

Our pupils thoroughly enjoyed the training and were complimented by the Resus team for their intelligent questions and participation in the role play scenarios.

We would like to thank Bucks healthcare for allowing their officers to come to school and train our pupils giving them confidence to know what to do if they come across someone in need.
