4th Class CPR Awareness

posted in: Fourth Class News | 0

Adams Gift is a campaign run every October by Order of Malta Ireland to promote CPR awareness.  Adam was the 13 year old son of a member of the Order of Malta who died suddenly – his mum started the initiative in his memory.  Yesterday (also World Restart a Heart day) 4th class learned the importance of bystander CPR.  They learned to call an ambulance, get a defibrillator and give compressions (to the tune of Baby Shark 100-120 beats per minute!).  The message is if you find someone unresponsive and not breathing: call for help, ask someone to get an AED and give compressions – push hard and fast in the centre of the chest.  Any standard of CPR is better than no CPR.  Anyone can save a life!  All of the 4th Class pupils were presented with certificates for CPR awareness.
