KINDY and pre-primary students from Dale Christian School were among the first in the state to enjoy Constable Care’s new education first aid program on Monday.
Through a fun and interactive puppetry performance, First Aid Heroes taught children at the Armadale school simple first aid techniques, how they could help someone with an allergic reaction or a snake bite, as well as how to call 000 for an ambulance.
Constable Care Child Safety Foundation chief executive David Gribble said the show was a great way to introduce children to the basics of first aid.
“We’ve worked closely with experts from St John Ambulance WA to develop this highly entertaining, educational performance,” he said.
“The performance is designed to empower children to know how they can help in a medical emergency and help them develop a sense of shared responsibility for community safety.”
First Aid Heroes is available free to all WA primary schools.
