For the last few weeks, Year 11 Health and Social Care students have been learning about First Aid. This culminated in a practical lesson where they were able to practice the chest compression element of CPR on dummies. Their efforts were accompanied by songs which are suggested for the required rhythm for chest compressions such as Staying Alive and Nellie the Elephant!
To get the chest to ‘click’ was harder than originally thought and proved how CPR is a tricky skill master! Well done to everyone for a brilliant effort and a fun (but extremely useful) lesson.
Wavell had the honour of opening the show at the Coram Shakespeare Schools Foundation Festival at South Hill Park Arts Centre last night and they attacked the show with energy and passion. We are very proud of you all 😊🎭
