Staff and Students Participate in ‘Re-start a Heart’ Day
Tuesday, 16 October saw staff and students at Ivybridge Community College fully involved in ‘Re-start’ a Heart Day’.
Medical students visited for the day and trained students from each year group in first aid training as part of a national drive to improve lifesaving skills and engage young people in learning about resuscitation and other first aid skills.
Helen Ryder, Head of Human Sciences, organised the day and said, “This is a fantastic national initiative – last year almost 200,000 young people learned first aid in one day – and I am delighted that our students are taking part. There is a serious message in terms of lifesaving but this is also about making first aid fun and accessible.”
