This term, IESB was proud to launch it's CPR training/ certification program across all Year levels at the school. This program has involved all students being taught and training in valuable CPR and First Aid skills according to the Svenska rådet för hjärt-lungräddning (HLR) regulations.
The goal of this program is to repeatedly expose students to CPR and First Aid skills each year, while introducing new and more complex skills as students get older. Year 9 students finish their training with an official CPR certification test. Successful completion of this testing allows Year 9 students to graduate from IESB with an official HLR certificate of qualification. The last testing session was completed during week 16, and IESB is extremely proud to have over 170 Year 9 students graduating this year with CPR certification.
These students are not only able to perform CPR and assess the condition of a victim, but also can use an AED machine, place a victim in the recovery position, and assist those who are choking. The PE department would like to thank both our school nurses (Ulrika Lindquist & Elisabet Bergqvist) for their continued support and assistance during our training and testing, and the PTA for their generous contribution to the program. This contribution has allow IESB to purchase high quality CPR dolls leading to much more accurate training and testing for students.
