First Aid

With the start of the new academic year fast approaching, Prem staff were hard at work preparing for this year’s cohort of students to rejoin our community. Putting the safety and well being of students first, members of teaching and boarding staff completed the third annual PADI accredited Emergency First Response first aid course. The course was taught by AEP MYP teacher, A. Catherine Piper, who has 10 years’ experience in first aid instruction. Skills included CPR and AED, as well as risk assessment and best practice for serious bleeding and possible spinal injuries, amongst many others. Whilst the school has 24-hour on-call nurses available, keeping staff trained in first aid procedures enables them to provide potentially life-saving care at a time of injury or illness. Last weekend, the graduating staff first aid class of 2015 undertook their two years on ‘refresher’ course in order to revisit the skills learnt. A. Catherine hopes further first aid courses can be offered this year for both staff and students alike.
