A team of RAF Air Cadet instructors from Bristol and Gloucestershire Wing recently trained over ninety Year 11 students at Newent Community School and Sixth Form Centre in basic life saving skills.
The British Heart Foundation’s Heartstart course was part of their Year 12 – Sixth Form Induction Day. During the course, students learned how to deal with a variety of situations including an unconscious casualty and administering CPR. Squadron Leader David Morgan said “We were delighted to work in partnership with Newent Community School, their behaviour, interest and good humour was second-to-none. Statistically several of the students are very likely to be in situations where people are injured or taken ill.
The Heartstart skills will help them to save a life. If anyone is interested in becoming a cadet or adult instructor with the RAF Air Cadets, please contact Bristol and Gloucestershire Wing ATC on 01452 721237 during office hours.
