Duke Of Edinburgh’s Award Update
The British Heart Foundation recently awarded the Duke of Edinburgh group at SJT a class set of CPR teaching materials. The Bronze group, who have recently completed a six week training programme on first aid, are shown below with the new equipment.
The Silver DofE students were all successful in passing their Royal Life Saving Society Training programme on First Aid. Pictured on the front cover are the Year 10 students carrying out CPR with First Aid trainer, Shane Leavesley.
The D of E Gold Group recently visited Cotswold Outdoor store in Shrewsbury and were given a very informative talk from staff about the kit they will need to carry on their four day Gold Expedition.
The Gold D of E group recently took part in a training weekend in Llangollen. They did a night hike, navigating in the dark, wet and cold, across fields and along unlit footpaths.
Thankfully the group displayed excellent navigation skills and they did manage to make it back to their camping pods!
The next day was a refresher course run by first aid instructor Shane Leavesley. This was followed by outdoor first aid, where they had to deal with various scenarios out on the hills. It was great training and all the students found this practical element really beneficial.
