Over 12,000 school children were given the life skill of First Aid in 2021.
The St John Ambulance First Aid in Schools program aimed to deliver First Aid training to 10,000 school children free of charge during 2021. As of December 2021, we have delivered First Aid Training to 12,992 Tasmanian school children!
Through fun and informative activities, we give students the life skill of First Aid. Children are encouraged to act with confidence & help in the case of an emergency. Engaging practical activities and easy to follow step-by-step plans are used to entertain and help the children retain these vital skills.
The knowledge and skills gained in our First Aid in Schools Program will develop First Aid awareness in school children and contribute to building a more resilient community.
This program is offered at no cost to schools and includes training which is suitable for primary schools, high schools and community groups.
Our trainers can visit all schools across Tasmania for a single session or a whole day.
