First Aid Focus Incursion
17 October 2022 @ 8:50 am - 18 October 2022 @ 2:50 pm
Skills promoted by the program The First Aid Focus program aims to train and equip students with the skills to assess and respond to first aid situations, while developing strategies to seek help for themselves or others. Experienced Community Education Officers demonstrate the correct first aid approach and students have the opportunity to practise and rehearse these life-saving skills. The practical skill-based sessions support students learning by teaching them how to enhance their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing in varied and changing contexts. The sessions also provide opportunities for students to: Develop and refine resilience skills; Learn and practice the ability to make safe decisions, manage risk and take actions to promote the health and safety of themselves and others; and Learn to take a critical approach to questioning and to access, analyse and apply a variety of resources for the benefit of themselves and the communities.
