We have a First Aid training course taking place on Monday 18th at 3-5.30pm (approx) which has been kindly funded by the Parents Association.There are slots available for 4 parents - 1 from each class grouping (Junior/Senior, 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th & 5th/6th) Parents who wish to accompany us on school tours or trips during the school year would be advised to partake in the training.
The purpose of the First Aid course is to train individuals in the skills necessary to recognise and provide first aid care for injuries and sudden illness until advanced medical personnel arrive and take over. We will also be undergoing training for using an Epi-Pen which would be a great help to anyone with allergies within their family.
This would be a huge benefit to parents and is free of charge.Please contact Mary in the office to put your name on the training list if you are interested.
The Community Centre Committee are also fundraising for a Defibrillator for the area at present. There will be follow up AED training for anyone interested by Pauline Nolan. This will also be free of charge. All details will follow but you can contact Jill Power if any further information is required.
