Year 11 First Aid Course - Pre-course requirements
by Andrew Devenish - Tuesday, 31 May 2016, 2:48 PM
During PSD this Thursday you will be working through the pre-course workbook for the upcoming first aid course. This is a great chance to finish this task off (or make a good start with it..).  Remember that your booklet needs to be completed before your first aid course.
Having this essential theory covered beforehand will mean that the course can be much more practical in nature, focussing on scenarios and role plays
Please bring the booklet and text book to PSD. We are meeting in the chapel on Thursday at the start of 3A.
