Heartstart

NHS staff came to our school to teach the P5-7 pupils about Heartstart.  They all watched a DVD about heart attacks and then they were taught what to do in an emergency and how to help someone that has taken unwell.  They learnt about how to check the patients breathing, how to put someone in the recovery position, what to do when someone chokes, how to do CPR and how to use a defribulator.  It was very interesting and they learnt a lot.
