As part of our preparedness for employment we provide an opportunity for students to undertake a First Aid Course. Below is some of the group who recently successfully have achieved their First Aid Certificates(and credits). Here they can be seen providing assistance to a “choking child”.
All students are welcome to pop in to our offices for information or to make an appointment for an interview. Parents are also encouraged to contact us if you have any queries.
