“A fabulous learning program that the whole class enjoyed!” – Teacher in South Lincoln
The grade 7 and 9 program includes:
Heart Health Assessment involves each student having their height, weight, waist circumference and blood pressure measured. The grade 9 assessment day also includes a non-fasting cholesterol test (finger prick). A booklet which includes a parental consent page and family history and lifestyle questionnaire is completed before the assessment day. Height, weight, and waist circumference measurements take place behind privacy barriers.
CPR/AED involves each student learning how to perform adult and child CPR and how to act in a choking emergency. Students also learn about AEDs, how they work, and why they are so important in the chain of survival.
The grade 11 Specialist High Skills Major supplement includes the above plus Standard First Aid training.
