The St John Ambulance First Aid in Schools program aims to deliver First Aid training to 10,000 school children free of charge this year. Through fun and informative activities, we will give students the life skill of First Aid. Children will be encouraged to act with confidence & help in the case of an emergency. Engaging practical actions 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.
