On 16th October 2018 a selection of Ambergate pupils took part in ‘Restart a Heart Day’ alongside 3000 children across the East Midlands.
Restart a Heart Day is a Europe-wide initiative developed by the European Resuscitation Council. It was launched in 2013 to teach members of the public how to help restart the heart of someone who has suffered a cardiac arrest.
Ambergate’s Restart a Heart Day was led by volunteers associated with LIVES, a charity supporting more than 700 highly trained and dedicated volunteer medics and Community First Responders living in communities across Greater Lincolnshire.
Throughout the day pupils were taught the valuable skills of how to put somebody in the recovery position and how to carry out CPR. Our pupils were fully engaged throughout the sessions and were keen to ask lots of questions and practice their skills!
Each pupil was given a certificate for taking part in the session.
